A Scottish bar is under investigation after hosting a performance from a stripper despite Covid restrictions – with one punter even pictured licking whipped cream off the entertainer’s backside.
The frisky frolics at The Butterfly Lounge in Glasgow saw customers standing close by to watch the performance without wearing masks, in another apparent breach of the city’s coronavirus regulations.
Glasgow is still under the Scottish government’s level two restrictions, and adult entertainment and nightclubs are not yet allowed, reports the Daily Record.
Tuesday’s fun and games at the Cochrane Street bar has prompted the city council to launch an inquiry into the behaviour.
One witness said: “I was passing the Butterfly Lounge in Glasgow and I couldn’t believe my eyes.
“It was jam-packed, people standing all over the place, even at the bar and there was a stripper! Clear breach of coronavirus rules.”
Under level two restrictions, up to six people can meet inside but they are required to wear masks while they are not eating or drinking at a table.

Billed as “Thirsty Tuesday”, the venue had posted an invitation on Facebook: “Afternoon everyone and welcome to Thirsty Tuesdays down at the butterfly today we are celebrating our handsome bar staff Mark’s birthday so pop in later and buy him a drink or 10.”
It added: “Remember to check in and out for NHS Scotland test and protect. We are still in a level 2 so that is for indoor drinking up to 6 people from 3 households. Outdoor drinking 8 adults from 8 households.”
A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: “We are aware of the incident and are investigating.”
A Scottish government spokesperson said: “It is vital that all premises operate within the rules in their area.
“We remain in a delicate position, with the Delta variant causing additional levels of concern and we do not want to undermine the hard work and sacrifices that have been made to get us to this point.
“Anyone with concerns around compliance can report it to their local authority or the police.”
The Daily Record contacted The Butterfly Lounge for comment on the investigation.
