This city may have to say goodbye to its topless baristas

Washington state is known as the birthplace of the bikini barista— female coffee servers who wear tiny bathing suits, pasties or sometimes no tops at all.

But now, after a series of mounting complaints, Everett, Wash. is considering a city ordinance that would require the nearly-naked servers to wear more conservative clothing.

According to Washington’s Q13 Fox News, there are fewer than half a dozen barista stands in the town of just over 100,000. However, the city says that they’re “draining a lot of resources investigating complaints” and may be hotbeds for some illegal activity.

“We know criminal activity isn’t happening at every barista stand, but our experience has been this type of business model does tend to allow for that criminal activity,” City of Everett spokeswoman Meghan Pembroke told Q13.
