These are Save Pleasure Island Blog exclusive photos of the inside of Mannequins Dance Palace, presumably taken 16-months after the club closed. These were provided to us via email from someone named PI Fan.

There has been much speculation about whether the revolving dance floor is still in Mannequins or whether it was sold and removed. While it's difficult to see the floor specifically, one can see the smooth transition from the club floor to the dance floor. It's been my opinion that one could not remove the dance floor without taking down the entire club. But whether that is true or not, the dance floor could not be removed without removing at least the railings. As you can see, the railings around the floor are all still intact. My old home, that short railing to the left, is still there! Woe to anyone who took my spot, lol. Also noteworthy in this photo is the mannequin still hanging up high on the far side.
In this photo we see some of the junk that is apparently being stored in Mannequins. Beyond the railing one can see the main bar and empty shelves where bartenders Bobby C. and Gordo used to mix their deadly concoctions. If there is a restaurant planning to move in here (Orange County Choppers Backyard BBQ or WinterWonderland were rumored), nothing towards accomplishing that has yet to occur. Thank you PI Fan for forwarding. If anyone else has interior shots of any of the clubs, please feel free to send them to me.
