NYC Former Playboy Club
The space was a glamourousmulti-story “private club” complete with a spirally entrance staircase behind two story glass. The restaurant was very popular with sports figures, celebrities, businessmen wielding hefty expense accounts.. and for good reason! Key Holders were attended to and waited on by sexy “bunnies” – sultry young women attired in form fitting, low cut one piece revealing costumes not much more and perhaps a lot less than bathing suits of the era. Accessories included bunny ears, cuffs, bow tie collars and the requisite cotton tail– adorable, witty, sexy and sexist…but fun!
Famous former Bunnies include Blondie’s Deborah Harry (pictured), Feminist Gloria Steinem (she wrote a scathing expose for Show Magazine!) and former super model Lauren Hutton.
