Climax - which marketed itself as "Colchester's raunchiest strip club" - has gone into liquidation after failing to pay a £55,000 tax bill.
Top Drawer Entertainment, which ran Climax — a strip club and late night bar in Colchester's St Botolph's street — appointed liquidators from Re10 Restructuring and Advisory towards the end of 2020.
The firm had run up debts of £68,650 with just £4,850 in assets to pay creditors.
A spokesman for the liquidators said the directors had chosen to put the company into liquidation after being unable to pay a tax bill of £55,000.
"There was a VAT assessment held by HMRC, regarding the investigation for the outstanding VAT that was not paid," he said.
