Tampa, Florida: Futuro UFO House Atop a Strip Club

"The most unique VIP room in the South." Free to look at the building, but pricey to actually enter (we are told), and not for families! The portable, prefabricated home design from 1968 is by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen.

2309 N. Dale Mabry Hwy., Tampa, FL
Near the airport. I-275 exit 41B, then drive north five blocks on US 92. On the right. Busy highway, rough neighborhood.

Futuro UFO House Atop a Strip Club

It's a bird. It' a plane. It's a UFO over a strip club! Heading down Dale Mabry Hwy in Tampa, we spotted the UFO on top of the Odyssey 2001 strip club. I'm thinking some extra special dances go on in there.

Futuro UFO House Atop a Strip Club

The spaceship is a VIP area and is not by any means free. The charge to enter is timed and starts at 15 min for over a hundred dollars. Of course that's with the company of an entertainer.

For road trippers, the "free" part is snapping a photo of the outside and moving on. But good point that inside is strictly adults with charge cards....

Futuro UFO Atop Strip Club

Busy section of highway, and hard to admire the flying saucer in the tangle of overhead wires and billboards for Personal Injury Lawyers. It's on top of the 2001 Odyssey nude dance club.

Another lap dance, Mr. Winters? Mr. Yonker?

Futuro UFO House Atop a Strip Club

I spotted an interesting variation of a Futuro UFO House while on a business trip to Tampa, Florida. This Futuro House is located on Dale Marby Blvd two blocks South of the Raymond James Stadium on the East side of the road. The UFO is painted silver, much like the one in North Carolina, but instead of being free-standing this UFO is perched atop a business, which happens to be a strip club. A small sign out states that the UFO is "the most unique VIP room in the South." I'll take their word for it.

[Greg Brown, 03/26/2005]

The club was named 2001 Odyssey Nude last time we checked. Photo added March 2009.
