Palms Hotel and Casino, in the Fantasy Tower
Playboy bunnies, complete with cottontails. It doesn’t matter that there are clubs where the servers are wearing the tiniest lingerie…Playboy Bunnies are classic. And in this club, you’ll find them slinging chips, too. The Playboy Club on the 52nd floor is a Playboy-themed casino and the first official Playboy Club in the United States since 1988. The club features floor-to-ceiling windows, dark colors, leather sofas and Baccarat crystal chandeliers. An exclusive VIP area features its own bar, a fireplace and two retro Playboy brand pinball machines. The trademark Playboy Bunny logo is prominently displayed throughout the club – from the carpeting and the buttons on the sofas to a giant neon bunny head emblazoned on the side of the building. There is Playboy centerfold wallpaper in the bathrooms and 60 plasma displays displaying visual images from the archives of the magazine. While Hugh Hefner had input in the design of the Playboy Club, he said most of the credit goes to the Maloof family and the Las Vegas-based entertainment company that helped open the club, N9NE Group. Michael Morton, a principal of N9NE Group, is the son of Chicago restaurateur Arnie Morton, one of Hefner’s partners in the launch of the original Playboy Club.

The scene at Coyote Ugly goes something like this: a stocked and stacked variety of scantily clad sex kittens scream, howl and two-step on top of the bar, making sure the mostly male patrons notice what they’re not wearing instead of the steady supply of drinks that inevitably go down here. The 35 keepers of the bar were chosen from a field of 1500 applicants for their exceptional sense of rhythm, mixological abilities and charming personalities… and, okay, maybe their software had something to do with it too. Showtime begins any time after 9 pm, when fresh-faced boys hang their ties above the bar and the few babes in the room liberate their brassieres. This is Jack Daniel’s country and it’s never tasted better than when poured by a tight-jeaned barn burner flicking her midriff in your face. The décor falls somewhere between Ozark Mountain high life and trailer trash cool, all the better to highlight the spectacular scenery behind the bar. Coyote Ugly, New York-New York Resort and Casino.
