There it is, on the far left. Maybe if you keep the windows open while you dance, people will throw money. That would be sweet. - IMAGE SOURCE

Just in time for the one-two whammy of Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras (we'll leave Presidents' Day and Chinese New Year out of it, for now), this beautiful piece of Soulard real estate is up for rent.

It is described thus in its Craigslist posting:

Unique space, huge and decked out with lots of extras. 1400 sq. ft., main level hardwood floor, bright colored panels mixed with exposed brick....Bar with granite counter top at one end of large living room, small platform with a stripper pole at the other end, accented with its own lighting and mirrors!
All that for a mere $810 a month!

Unreal was stunned. An apartment with its own stripper pole? And off-street parking? In Soulard? It seemed too good to be true. So we e-mailed landlord Troy Roberts, who had posted the ad.

He wrote back:
Had a tennant [sic] who asked if he could do a few things to the place --- and this is sort of what morphed out. Its a nice, big, great location without the extras.  Put the platform similar/same wood to the floor with the pole, mirrors around, lights the whole nine yards. Place also decked out with great lighting sconces and spot track lights, granite counter top glass block bar and walk out deck on the upper level. But the stripper pole, DEFINITELY the focal point and the extras compliment it nicely.
We should say so! If only moving weren't such a bitch.
