The owners of a strip club in Chicago, Illinois, were surprised to learn that they received an award for having the cleanest business in the city.

The Albany Park Neighborhood group awarded the Admiral Theatre, for keeping Albany Park beautiful.

A lot of companies do not maintain their garbage on the sidewalks, the group said. However, the Admiral Theatre does a very good job keeping their exterior in order.

They keep their place spotless, the group said. The Admiral Theatre is located at 3940 West Lawrence Avenue.

The group said that businesses are nominated for awards by readers of their newsletter, and several hundred community members voted for the strip club.

The requirements for the award include maintaining a clean sidewalk, showcase good care, providing suitable places to dispose of trash, which helps minimize the amount of waste in the neighborhood and encouraging other businesses to do the same.

Winners receive a certificate to display in their window, a mention on Facebook and a listing on their website.
