An old strip club in the Leicester community is getting a new life.

Xcapades has quite a history, and folks who live nearby have taken notice of some changes

"I've noticed work being done on the old strip club that was located on Leicester Highway. Any idea what's gonna be there now?" Mike Shields asked News 13 in a Facebook message.

Xcapades was closed several years ago following a raid by the SBI.

News 13 reported on activity at the former club in 2016, when the owner said he was working on creating a new music venue. But that never materialized.

Now, News 13 has learned part of the building is being converted into an ax throwing club.

What's an ax throwing club? It's sort of like bowling with lanes but instead of balls and pins they use axes and targets. The operators are waiting on permits to be approved by the city.
