City Council Denies Request to Reinstate Oasis Bar’s Cabaret License

February 21, 2018

The Wahpeton City Council voted 5-2 against reinstating the Oasis Bar’s cabaret license, meaning that topless dancing cannot continue. There was a packed house on hand to hear the decision, which the owners say may cause them to lose business or close.

Tina Bohn, a council member, made a recommendation for a sunset clause, which would give the owners time to develop a new business model. That proposed change to the city ordinance will go before the council committee next week, and will return to the council in two weeks.
