Harley’s Hardrock Saloon hopes to open at its new Yellowknife location in a month’s time.

Harley’s, which calls itself “Canada’s northernmost strip club,” is relocating from its current premises on Franklin Avenue to the former KFC and Lenny Burger building two blocks away.

That building has been vacant since the Lenny Burger closed 18 months ago.

Harley’s confirmed its new location in a Facebook post late on Thursday, promising: “We’ve got some big changes coming your way.”



The anticipated opening date is December 1, though the club said the date was ‘tentative’ at this point.

Earlier in the week, before the location had been finalized, Harley’s co-owner Sara Handley told NNSL: “We’re also adding in a Harley’s diner including a full menu and 24-hour all-day breakfast.

“The club portion will be open according to the liquor law rules. Open at 11am … until 2am. The restaurant side of it will be open 24 hours.”

Harley’s also has ambitions to open a cannabis store, though this must go through a territorial government approvals process.
