Playboy Club sets itself apart with fluffy-tailed cocktail servers

A nightclub’s distinguishing feature — the thing that makes one club different from another — usually is something like a state-of-the-art sound system or a computerized lighting setup or a new twist in customer service.

But the most distinguishing features of Las Vegas’ Playboy Club? Begin with the Playboy name and bunny logo, which have helped to make Playboy one of the most recognizable brands in the world.

Then, of course, there are the Playboy Bunnies, who not only serve drinks but serve as the living embodiment of the Playboy mystique.

General Manager Rico Romano notes that among the club’s patrons are "die-hard Playboy fans" from all over the world who, "when they come to Vegas, specifically need to stop in to the Playboy Club and see a Bunny and take a picture."

For guys, "the ability to be able to sit and talk to a Playboy server, a Bunny, is a thrill," he says. "But it’s funny: The women appreciate it and are more starstruck than the guys are."

The Playboy Club, located on the 52nd floor of the Palms’ Fantasy Tower, also is distinguished by its gaming opportunities. It is, Romano says, "the only venue here in town that offers gambling in a nightclub venue."

Then there’s the Playboy Club’s vibe, which is more reminiscent of a very lively lounge than a raucous nightclub.

"We do have a dance floor and live DJs and the light shows and that sort of thing," Romano says. "However, we don’t go as extreme as most nightclubs do. The music won’t be as loud, and you don’t have to scream and shout to talk to somebody."

For those seeking a more traditional clubbing experience, "when you come to the Playboy Club, you also have access to (neighboring) Moon," Romano adds. "You can go back and forth all night long.

"It’s great, because our customers don’t have to pick or choose if they just want a lounge (setting) or a nightclub. They can enjoy both."

The Playboy Club opens at 8 p.m. seven days a week. Closing time generally comes around 3:30 a.m. on weekdays and 4:30 a.m. weekends.

Cover is $20 weekdays and $40 on Friday and Saturday nights. Ladies usually get in free.

For reservations or more information, call 942-6900.
