Future of "Club Faces" remains undetermined after Horry County revokes business license

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Club Faces in Myrtle Beach was shut down Friday night after a check on the facility found strippers on site, according to Lisa Bourcier with Horry County.

Bourcier confirmed the club's business license had been revoked.

Club Faces has only been open since November 2015. But despite new ownership, Solicitor Jimmy Richardson said he immediately got calls from people living in the area concerned about the club. 

He believes some of that worry stemmed from the location's troubled past.

"A new owner could have the best of intentions, but they're really going to have to crack the whip for the first little while," Richardson said. "Otherwise, people will come looking to do the same stuff that got the first club in trouble."

Richardson said his office had nothing to do with the latest action against the property. However, he has worked against it in the past, when it was known as "The Gold Club."

"I could have told you a year ago that we would probably have problems with it," Richardson said.

Now the doors are locked and signs out front tell people to stay away or face penalty.

However, Richardson said the new owners of "Club Faces" deserved the chance to try to turn the establishment around.

"The system is set up that even though you suspect problems in the future...you still have to go through the process," Richardson said.

"Club Faces" does have the opportunity to appeal the business license revocation, according to Horry County's website.

WMBF has reached out to the nightclub through facebook and several different numbers listed online, but we have yet to hear back from the owners at the time of this report.
