Playboy Opens New Club in London

Denise Truscello/WireImage(CHICAGO) -- Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was in London Saturday night, as the Playboy Club London was officially opened.

The club, a gaming and entertainment venue, opened with a private function attended by Hefner, his fiancée Crystal Harris and his two sons Marston and Cooper.

Located in London’s Mayfair district, the club features two floors and is spread over 17,000 square feet, with its design incorporating influences from the original Playboy Club London that opened in 1966.

"I'm thrilled to be here for this very special occasion that celebrates the return of the Playboy Club and its iconic Bunnies to London," Hefner said upon arrival at the opening. "People still remember with great fondness the sophistication and romance that the original London Club offered when it opened in 1966. There is a retro-chic quality about Playboy Club London and its Bunnies that will give today's guests an experience they may have missed the first time around."

Patrons at the club can look forward to the hospitality of the world-renowned Playboy Bunnies who will serve as hostesses, croupiers and cocktail servers, according to a news release from Playboy.

Those in attendance at the opening event were treated to musical entertainment from DJ Vice and cocktails by renowned mixologist Salvatore Calabrese.
