Pity. I really liked that place. Great view of the city amongst other things.

I did too....but I had only been there once. (May 2009)

Cool stories, bro:

1) A cute hooker propositioned me at Moon (the club upstairs). She was a vast improvement over the other hooker who had made me an offer in Vegas years prior....a crack whore with missing teeth.

2) My g/f at the time was a little miffled when I mentioned that we went there. She didn't quite get it......I'm a complete prude around my parents, but I could have easily taken them there and not felt awkward. Needless to say, this is one of the reasons why she's my ex.

much like the boomers who made it big, playboy is no longer remotely cool.

Doesn't Hooters and the other boob-burger bars make the Playboy Club a bit obsolete?

I still like the Playboy brand (even though it has lost some of its luster) so I've always wanted to visit the club. Shame I won't get that chance. Hopefully Playboy will open another one in the U.S. preferably on the east coast.

Generation X here..... The Hustler Generation.

Playboy never resonated with post-boomers.... or am I totally wrong?

I think the Playboy Club my little sister and I built out of shoeboxes for our Gloria Steinem Barbie was much better.

The martini shaker was person-sized, proportionally speaking, and Grandma let us use real alcohol provided we made her one.

JackieRabbit: "Doesn't Hooters and the other boob-burger bars make the Playboy Club a bit obsolete?"

Cultural advancement over the last thirty years has made the Playboy Club a bit obsolete.
Not in and of itself: there's plenty of room for clubs with those sensibilities. (Certainly so, in Vegas)
But they're not remotely special anymore. And there just isn't as much upside to the Playboy brand anymore.
(And a debatable downside, seeing as how the last two generations of kids have no real interest in things "Playboy", beyond the bunny logo.)

It's a bit of shame, really. I like to think there's a place for the romanticized version of what it was.
That is: more like the vision Hef has of it. Less like the last thirty years of its reality.

A lot of boomers never cared much for it either. It lost it's thrill for me at about age 12. We could always find some guy's dad's stash of more explicit skin mags. They did have some good interviews and articles, though. No, really it; it did.

FTFC: It really went downhill when they tried to turn it into a hipster club with bottle service and they removed all the video poker machines and all that was left was the high limit table games.

God damn, hipster has come to mean anyone anywhere who is different from me. If Chinese businessmen count, soon we'll be calling Al Qaeda and Japanese shut-ins hipsters too.

I went there once in September 2007. It was boring as shiat.

The dealers and waitresses were cute, but that's true at every casino and club in Las Vegas.

Playboy's big problem is that they have completely converted all of western culture to resemble their ideals, and now they have nothing unique to offer.
 
2012-06-05 05:59:56 PM  
What? A Maloof enterprise goes to shiat? I can only think of every instance where this has happened before.
 
2012-06-05 08:17:59 PM  
And nothing of value was lost.

/Hugh Hefner is so gross and irrelevant.

Was it anything like the real Playboy clubs or just another modern club riding the name? To me, it doesn't seem like the real thing if the men aren't wearing suits and the dress code was "Class".

Not that I would wear a suit without a gun to my head. "I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member."

I went to a private party upstairs there last year during BlackHat. I made a point of touring the actual Playboy floor. Glad I did just for being able to say "I did it" but it wasn't anything all that special compared to the rest of Vegas. I do think it is a shame the brand is a shell of what it was.

In a world of free hardcore internet porn, what relevance does Playboy have?

There's nobunny home at the Palms.
