As Pressure Increases, Spas Shut Down


 As public awareness increases and the City cracks down on illicit businesses operating on Kennedy Blvd another suspected illicit massage business shuts its doors. The space where Spa Land was renting is now empty and ready to be home to a legitimate and law abiding businesses.

 Over the past year several of these questionable establishments have closed up.

 FL Day Spa

Japanese Spa

Lucky Spa

 And of course Seven Star Spa (which is now Sun Spa but we are still including it in this list)


The City is getting serious about enforcing their new Bathhouse Ordinance targeting illicit massage parlors. Mark Douglas made another hard hitting report which included a supportive quote from the mayor about the enforcement. The article was picked up by the national anti-trafficking organization Polaris who have been focusing on massage parlor trafficking in a new initiative this year. 






Here's a little video montage of all the places that have decided that Tampa was not the best place to continue doing business. Hopefully we will get to make a longer video soon.
