THE Vault On Ruthven strip club will open its doors to the public tonight.

Management are expecting a huge turnout akin to that experienced in Emerald, where more than 2000 patrons attended a new strip club within its first eight days ofoperation.

General manager Thor Vallmuur expected patrons to be lining up out the door for the 6pm opening.

"I think we will be at capacity every night this week - more than 400 people a night," he said.

The club has caused concern among some community groups who launched failed appeals to stop it opening at its Ruthven St address.

Mr Vallmuur said that, by and large, it had been "well received".

One feature of the club which has just been announced is Xbox rooms, in which patrons can pay to play computer games against hostesses.

"We think that will be pretty popular," Mr Vallmuur said.

Male and female strippers will operate at the club which will employ about 40 locals and 30 to 40 non-Toowoomba staff.

Management spent $2.5million on the interior refurbishment of the former Commonwealth Bank building, from which The Vault had derived its name.
