Once A Slimeball, Always A Slimeball: Sex Predator Who Owns Milwaukee’s Five O’Clock Club facing New Federal Sex Trafficking Charges

By Mark Belling, WISN-AM

The convicted child sexual predator who has long operated Milwaukee’s famed Five O’Clock Steakhouse has just been charged in Hollywood, Florida with sex trafficking a minor.

Stelio Kalkounas is accused in federal court of recruiting an underage girl last year and trafficking her for commercial sex acts.

Despite Kalkounas’ notorious past, people have continued to patronize the pervert’s restaurant. Former Mayor Tom Barrett even held a fundraiser there. Bob Bauman, the alderman who represents the district the near west side restaurant is located in, has long defended Kalkounas saying people deserve a second chance. So much for that.

Kalkounas is already a convicted child predator based on charges in Illinois that he tried to recruit a teenage girl for sex. Kalkounas appeared in federal court in Florida yesterday. The FBI is asking that anyone else who has been victimized by Kalkounas to contact the agency.

Kalkounas’ family had operated steakhouses in Illinois before buying the famed 5 O’Clock Club from the Coerper family.
