New Under-21 Nightclub Could be a New Hang-Out for Kids
EDEN, Md. - A new nightclub for people under the age of 21 is now open in Eden in southern Wicomico County. Club Inferno is located inside the Crown Sports Center, a family-owned business.
Susie Hearn, who owns the nightclub, said other similar clubs with bad reputations did not help her. Hearn said she is still confident that Club Inferno will be better with less trouble.
"We have a wonderful security team made up of professional security guards," she said. "We also have a lit parking lot, we have a walk=through metal detector and again we have a great staff, so if there's problems we're going to be on top of them."
Some parents say they would not want their kids at a nightclub.
"I would really, I guess, prefer that my children be involved in sporting events and functions at school as opposed to this environment, if it's going to be a nightclub scenario with dancing," said Susan Banks of Salisbury.
Parents like David Keener from Madison in Somerset County say they like the idea.
"I think this is great that they have some place that they're protected and they have everything in place for them to just come and have fun," Keener said.
Hearn said the key to her club not falling into the problems of others is prevention.
"If we suspect anybody is under the influence of drugs and alcohol we will call their parents," she said. "We even have a breathalyzer kit if need be and it's prevention."
Club Inferno is open Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30-11:30 p.m. and is for people ages 15 to 20. Hearn said all of the nightclub's posted rules must be followed.
