The bunnies will be back on the streets of Manhattan as the Merchants Hospitality, Cachet Hospitality Group, and Playboy Enterprises plan to bring back the Playboy Club as the highlight of Cachet Boutique New York Hotel to open in the second half of the year. It's been 30 years since NY has seen the last of the Playboy Club when it shut down on 1986.
According to its press release, David Laris, EVP of F&B and Nightlife said, "We are thrilled to be able to bring the Playboy Club back to New York City for the first time in more than 30 years." He continued to say, "The Playboy Club is the perfect addition to the distinctive features we are creating for our guests as part of the Cachet Boutique New York experience."
The club will be having a lounge area, a game room and a dining room to be served by the Playboy Bunnies. The report also stated that the Playboy Club "will feature elements from the sexy and sophisticated aesthetic of Playboy's rich history integrated with the energy of New York, one of the world's most exciting destinations."
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner set the streets with the famed bunny logo on 1960 in Chicago and the club was suddenly a hit which, afterward got built in over 30 locations around the globe. Playboy's Vice President of Gaming and Location Based Entertainment Valerie Golson said, "The reintroduction of the Playboy Club to New York City is a huge milestone for us as we continue to reinvent our brand for new audiences all around the world."
"We are so happy to be teaming with Cachet both here in the United States and in China, where we are excited to open the highly-anticipated Playboy Club Shanghai this March," Golson also shared.
