While once occupied by a Diesel store and rumors of an Apple store having faded, the iconic former Bank of America building on the corner of Castro and Market streets now has a new business concept: an all male burlesque club and restaurant. Dubbed RR-SF (Randy Rooster San Francisco), investors hope to install the club at the corner of Market and Castro next to Harvey Milk Plaza. The restaurant will be a high-end type with designer cocktails and sustainable fare. Onstage, the club "will offer tasteful burlesque style entertainment for gay gentlemen, a service currently not offered in the City." The club will be cashless and a portion of all proceeds will be donated to charities selected by guests upon entering. Supervisor Scott Wiener, whose district includes the Castro and is known for helping ban the nude from San Francisco streets, has vowed to "reserve judgment on the strip club plan until he hears more from the neighborhood."
