You wonâ€™t find any meat at a new spot in Portland, but you will find a whole lot of flesh. Casa Diablo claims to be the worldâ€™s first vegan strip club — there’s no meat, eggs or dairy on the menu.
The club reflects the ideals of its owner, Johnny Diablo.
â€œMy very sole purpose in life is to save as many creatures from pain and suffering as possible,â€ Diablo said.
Diablo, a vegan for more than 20 years, insists his club isnâ€™t a publicity stunt.
He hopes to expose people to the vegan way and change the way they think.
While it may not be the most orthodox way to win over new vegans, Diablo hopes people bring some green and eat some green at his new club.
â€œ(Itâ€™s) vixens, not veal, and sizzle, not steak,â€ Diablo said. â€œWe put the meat on the pole, not on the plate.â€
In addition to laying claim to the world’s first vegan strip club, Diablo also said his club offers another first in Portland — the first non-smoking strip club in the city.
