UPDATED: Sources at City Hall have advised that the burlesque show set for Nov. 6, 2013, likely will not happen as The Copper Door has not yet acquired an Enertainment Permit that will allow them to proceed. I am told that the SAPD will shut down this event if they have to. Burlesque is allowed in Santa Ana if it doesn’t violate the adult entertainment ordinance, which prohibits the exposure of specific body parts.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 11th, 2013
(Santa Ana, CA) Oct 12, 2013 – The Copper Door Bar, the popular craft beer bar located on 3rd and Broadway, has partnered with Dirty Little Secrets Burlesque.

“Everyone at The Copper Door is thrilled to be teaming up with DLS Burlesque. We’re always looking for ways we can add to the arts culture here in the Artists Village.” –Alvin (The Copper Door owner)

We’re excited to see how we can use the raised stage, all the open space, and even that beautiful 30-foot wooden table, it’s definitely going to be a fun experience! And I’m so glad we were able to work out this residency to offer locals the kind of entertainment that’s usually found in LA, but now you can find right here, at The Copper Door!” –Caitlin (DLS Burlesque)
