The notice to close Couples International by June 26 will leave the city's "thriving" swinging set with nowhere to go and has pushed owners Bryan and Leesa Horn to the brink of financial ruin. They say the move will push "the scene" back into the seedy underground of dodgy hotels and suburban homes.
Mrs Horn, 48, said a Brisbane City Council inspector turned up at their Holden St address, in Woolloongabba, and notified them of the complaint last November. The long-time couple, who are mild-mannered building designers by day, began making plans to ensure their "BYO nightclub" complied with disability requirements, including a lift and wheelchair access throughout.
Mr Horn, 62, said Couples International, which holds paid parties from Thursday to Saturday nights, had hosted several guests in wheelchairs "with no complaints". The couple, with five children and four grandchildren between them, enjoy an unorthodox relationship involving her longtime boyfriend and have been part of Brisbane's swinging scene since the 90s.
They took it on as a business 10 years ago and are not only saddened by its imminent demise but also concerned about what will become of the city's scene. I mean, we're talking a year-old single lady just crying here the other night because she's got nowhere to go that feels safe anymore. They try to dance on the dance floor and guys come up behind them and start grinding. Here, if anybody touches somebody without permission they're evicted.
She said only 30 per cent of guests "played", and most were just there to enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. It's nothing like people think. Personalise your weather.
