Welcome to the Official Website of Lexington’s very own Cowboys Showgirls, Kentucky’s #1 in adult and erotic entertainment and home of Lexington’s finest entertainers.
Cowboys Showgirls pride themselves on being “down-to-earth” and providing a “layed back” atmosphere, catering to all walks of life, from white-collar to blue collar and everyone in between. Cowboy’s plays a variety of music for everyone to enjoy.
The proprietor, Warren King, along with is wife Becky, have owned a business in the adult caberet industry since 1967, starting with The Red Lion in Lexington. Amidst the Sexual Revolution business flourished, and five years later, The Red Lion was also opened in Nashville, Tennessee.
The following years proved to be very fruitful and instrumental, and Warren and Becky purchased The Boom Boom Room in 1976. In 1978, the name of The Boom Boom Room was changed to what is currently known as Cowboy’s. Cowboy’s provided exotic female entertainers from 11am-8pm, then live country bands such as Lee Greenwood and George Strait until closing at 1am.
The year 1980 brought about a low budget film called Urban Cowboy and swept the movie industry by storm. Starring John Travolta and Debra Winger, it inspired mechanical bullriding across the nation. The live bands at Cowboy’s were replaced by a mechanical bull and was an instant success. Everyone wanted to come to Cowboy’s in Lexington to be an urban cowboy.
With a successful business of Cowboys, a family, and Warbec Farms, Warren decided that he didn’t want to spread himself too thin and he closed The Red Lion in Nashville. A few years thereafter, an accidental fire claimed The Red Lion in Lexington and he decided not to rebuild. Since then, Cowboys Showgirls has become the leading strip club in Lexington, and is succeeded by Warren’s son, Kevin King.History July 11, 2013
