An historic gothic mansion built in the late 1800s, The Manor, formerly known as Sleeman House, is the old family home of Canadian beer mogul George Sleeman, rumoured to have supplied Al Capone during prohibition.
Purchased by Roger Cohen in the early 1980s, it has become a notorious strip club with a 32-room motel attached, principally rented to the dancers and other transient characters.
But with the growth of internet pornography and the rampant rise of massage parlours, the strip-club business has changed over the last decade. Whatever glamour there was in the industry is now long gone.
Roger finds himself at a crossroads wondering what to do with the business. He has been dangling the idea of turning the building over to condo developers but he will not make any decision lightly. As he sees it The Manor is what keeps both his family and his pride intact.
