(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Business at the Dead Goat Saloon isn't taking off, so instead it will take 'it' off.

Daniel Darger says he originally planned an upscale burlesque show at his blues club to boost business.

But when he was approved for a sexually oriented business license, he said it required him to build a stripper stage with a pole.

Now the shows will be like run-of-the-mill strip shows.

Some of the club's partners are unhappy with the saloon's new direction.

And some nearby businesses have appealed saying zoning laws restrict sexually oriented businesses to more than 330 feet from landmark sites like the Zion National Bank.

But the zoning administrator says the saloon is on the interior of the block, and doesn't have to be more than 330-feet from the bank.
