Lingerie Cafes No More: Scantily-Clad Waitresses In Garden Grove Will Need To Cover Up
GARDEN GROVE (CBS) — Waitresses at so-called lingerie cafes in Garden Grove must now wear more appropriate clothing.
Starting this weekend, coffeehouses throughout the Little Saigon area will be cited if their waitresses do not cover up.
The move comes amid complaints about some of the workers serving customers while wearing see-through dresses.
On Monday night, the city council approved a ban on waitresses exposing their breasts at the cafes.
There are 37 lingerie cafes in Garden Grove; 20 of which have been raided by authorities with the confiscation of 200 gambling machines.
Last month, the City Council voted to approve the ban, which went into effect Friday. Police are giving the cafes a one-week grace period.
