THERE'S something about Gladstone that makes exotic dancer Rosie want to boogie.

She will join seven other dancers who are set to have tongues wagging at the grand opening of the MIePLACE strip club on Saturday.

There will be fully nude shows, private lap dancers and plenty of heat in the room, as the venue opens to the public on Friday, ahead of the grand opening.

It's a project that MIePLACE owner Aodhan McCann is over the moon to bring to life.

"I am happy that we are here. It's been a long road," he said. "I have been working on this for seven or eight months."

Despite a minor setback as two strippers pulled out at the last minute, he brought in two local dancers, and doors will still open for the public from 8pm.

Rosie, who has danced in Gladstone three times, said it was an attractive city to visit, describing her dancing as a working holiday.

"I love it. Every time I leave here I feel sad," the 23-year-old said.

"I don't know if it's because of the money in my wallet but the people are so funny and cool.

"I wouldn't work at any other club."

The New Zealander started dancing in January but it's not her full-time career.

"I am studying to become a personal trainer on the Gold Coast," she said.

"I wasn't stimulating my brain enough with just dancing and I think personal training is a good thing to have behind you."

Rosie said she and the seven other women weren't out to "tear down the town".

"A lot of people judge, I understand people do that. But if you actually had a conversation with one of my workmates you would be surprised," she said.

"We are all super babes, we have good attitudes and love to have a good time," she said. "I think it will go off."

Mr McCann said he had always planned to open a second strip club.

"My family had Port Curtis hotel for 11-and-a-half years. It was always my plan to go to another building," he said.

"I wanted to offer quality entertainment in the one venue."

As for the opposition in town, Central Lane Hotel owner Rick Adams said he didn't know the new strip club was having its grand opening this weekend.

"I wish them all the best," he said. "It's business as usual for us.

"We have been doing it (running the Boardroom) for two and a bit years successfully and we will continue to do that."

Mr Adams said when any new establishment opened in Gladstone, it was natural for the public to flock to it.

"Anything opens and everybody is there and that's fine. People will want to have a look at it and I am sure they have done a nice job."

MIePLACE's cover charge is $15. The adult entertainment section is open to the public from Friday night.
