Las Vegas (CBS Las Vegas) – Reality star and veteran brothel owner Dennis Hof wants to go where no man has gone before.
Hof, 65, is the present owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. But now, he is opening up a new venture, a sci-fi-themed bordello situated 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The venture will be called “Alien Cathouse.”
For assistance with his new business, Hof turned to infamous Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.
Fleiss made her name in the 90s for running a prostitution ring that catered to the stars. Hof is a long time friend of Fleiss and told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that she would be serving as “chief alien design queen,” tapping into her expertise with the costumes and décor.
Both Hof and Fleiss came up with the idea for Alien Cathouse.
“We both wanted to do something different, and we both like being on the cutting edge,” he said. “There has never been a place like the Alien Cathouse before because no one ever went for it.”
The location was previously owned by the longtime brothel owner Maynard “Joe” Richards. Along with the brothel, Hof also bought the adjoining gas station, bar and convenience store.
The complex is getting rebranded as the Area 51 Alien Travel Center.
“Area 51 is a big place. If you turn off my driveway and head up 15 miles there it is,” Hof told CBS Las Vegas. “I really wanted to capitalize on it.”
Hof describes the current state of the bordello as a “disgusting, terrible place” without a single window. The partners are hoping to finish a complete conversion inside of a couple of months, before beaming in customers.
The important details regarding the working women are still being hashed out, such as whether or not to paint the women green to resemble Orion Slave Girl characters from Star Trek.
However Hof tells CBS Las Vegas that for the clients he is reaching out “to everyone, all the Star Wars fans and Trekkies,” and cater to all flavors of geek fantasy.
Hof also hopes to collaborate with science fiction icons such as William Shatner – known better to his prospective clients as “Captain Kirk.”
Asked Hof, “Who would know this stuff better?”
