Channing Tatum is opening his Magic Mike-themed bar this weekend.
The actor has been inspired to launch Saints and Sinners in New Orleans after starring in hit comedy Magic Mike alongside Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello. The film was loosely based on Channing's time as a male stripper.
The hunk's new bar, located in New Orleans' famous Bourbon Street, is expected to feature a "wild show" with sexy male dancers, reports New York Post.
A host of Hollywood stars are due to attend the grand opening, including Channing's wife Jenna Dewan and his Magic Mike co-stars Matt and Joe.
The Steven Soderbergh-directed movie was a huge hit at the box office, raking in over $100 million.
Channing was recently quizzed on reports there may be a sequel in the pipeline, and admitted he would be reluctant to work on another instalment without Steven.
"You know, we don't know if it's going to happen yet. We want it to happen. We'd love it to be a road trip movie, but Soderbergh's not directing - like done, done. He's like actually gone," Channing told MTV News. "It's hard to imagine doing the movie without him."
