New York Nightclubs Go Furless


Two of Manhattan's top nightclubs, Spa and Centro-Fly, are publicizing their no-fur entry policies. Hip-hop artist Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs was recently denied entrance to Spa until he left his fur behind. While "Puff Daddy" complied with Spa's "No Fur" sign, supermodel Naomi Campbell refused and threw a fit at the door protesting the policy, according to Steve Lewis, owner of the club.

Centro-Fly has started to work with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to promote the club's no-fur policy. "There's no reason for the vanity of fur," said owner Tom Sisk. "Put it back in your limo or sport utility vehicle."

Both Sisk and Lewis are both working with PETA to raise public awareness of the issue, with upcoming celebrity events at their clubs.
