An adult entertainment business cannot set up shop at its desired Indianapolis location after the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a city ordinance that prohibits such businesses from operating in certain zoning districts.
When HH-Entertainment, Inc. decided to open one of its Hustler Hollywood adult retail stores in Indianapolis, the company selected commercial property at 5505 E. 82nd St. as its preferred location. The property in Castleton is separated from a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant by a driveway and, notably, is located in a C-3 zoning district, where “adult entertainment businesses” are prohibited without a variance. But based on conversations with city officials about proposed ordinance revisions, HH-Indianapolis, LLC entered into a 10-year lease on the property in July 2016.
