The Bunnies are BACK! Playboy set to open club in New York after 30 year absence
My first photo as a Playboy Bunny--St. Louis, 1973.

The Bunnies are BAACK! I'm thrilled to hear, after a 30 year absence, Playboy is opening up a new club in New York! The lounge and supper club is slated to open in the new Cachet Boutique hotel later this year in midtown Manhattan. The space will feature a lounge, a game room, a full-service dining room and, of course, Playboy Bunny servers, hostesses and cocktail waitresses. There will even be a "gaming" Bunny which will take the place of the "bumper-pool Bunnies" of yesteryear. (I must admit I did play a mean game of bumper-pool)!

Valerie Golson, Playboy's VP of Gaming and Location Based Entertainment said in a statement to Fox News Travel, "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."

The first Playboy Club opened on Leap Day, (February 29, 1960 ) in Chicago (clever, huh?) New York's original Club opened in 1962 and operated until 1986. Today, there are Playboy Clubs in London, Hanoi, Hyderabad, New Delhi and Mumbai, as well as a beer garden in Pune, India, and a café in Bangkok, Thailand. Golson also confirmed that there will be a new Playboy Club opening in Shanghai, China, this March, again in collaboration with Cachet.

I'm hopping around with happiness! It's a whole new day for Playboy!
