Sexy Coffee Bar Controversy - People Want Racy Menu Taken Down

Posted:
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) - A coffee shop with half naked women behind the counter has people in a Clovis neighborhood mad. People who live near "Bottoms Up Espresso Bar" have submitted a petition to the city asking that racy menus be taken down and employees wear more clothes.

At "Bottom's Up Espresso Bar" business is booming. The bikini baristas say it's because of all the attention the coffee shop is getting.

"All it's really doing is getting us more business and introducing more people to the business," says Annie Hammond, who works at "Bottoms Up Espresso Bar."

Candice Eslick lives near the coffee shop. She's gathered 140 signatures from people opposing the controversial business.

"I believe if we start in our neighborhoods and homes to make things better, we'll make this nation better," says Candice Eslick, who started a petition opposing the coffee shop, "This is my little place in the world that I want to make a better place to live."

Eslick took her petition to Clovis City Council to see if they can do anything. She told council members that she wants the menus taken down and the employees covered up.

"Kids can look at it any time they want," adds Eslick.

The city says there's not much it can do because "Bottoms Up" isn't doing anything illegal. However, Eslick says she isn't giving up.

"In a perfect world I wish young girls had examples of young women that felt that their brains were far more utilized than their bodies to get what they need," says Eslick.

The city will discuss what to do about "Bottoms Up" on May 19th. The Clovis City Attorney is looking into the business license. Eslick says the coffee shop was an energy bar for a month, underwent renovations and then these menus went up. The city is seeing if there are any violations because of that change.
