The couple, who owned a bar in Tamworth in New South Wales before moving to New Zealand, said they decided to employ the lingerie waitress when businesses started to slow down after summer.
They hoped the scantily-clad waitress would be ‘a new thing’ and help bring people out of their homes.
The bar employs a strict no touching policy and anyone caught misbehaving will be given ‘short shrift’, Mr Doran said.
The new addition to Nelson's nightlife has received mixed reviews from locals, however. While there are several positive comments on Facebook, not everyone was happy.
‘Nothing sells like human flesh, do you have to stoop this low [sic]. It maybe OK in Australia, but I don't like seeing it here,' one woman said.|
