You Won’t Believe This Richland Building’s Seedy History
The next time you are cruising down George Washington Way, take a look at the building that used to be City Buffet (Red Robin before that) and was almost Luke’s Bar.
Rumor has it that it used to be a topless bar called Adrian’s! Who knew clean-cut Richland was so seedy!
Seriously…it was back in the 1960’s. People on the "You Know Your [sic] From Tri-Cities..." Facebook group kept arguing about what year it hired topless dancers. Apparently it was supposed to be a nice restaurant when it opened, and eventually it put tops on the dancers and made them "Go Go Girls" by the 1970s.
And before it was a Red Robin it was a gay bar briefly in the early 80s. Interesting!
