On 20 November 2010, Playboy will officially welcome guests to Playboy Club Macau on the top floor of Sands Macau Hotel.
Influenced by the original Playboy Club which was first launched in 1960 in Las Vegas, Playboy Club Macau has been designed to reflect the latest Asian trends in high-end entertainment. The entertainment and gaming venue will span 12,000 square feet and will offer views of the city skyline.
“The opening of Playboy Clubs around the world proves the brand is more popular than ever before," said Hugh Hefner, Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Playboy Enterprises, Inc. “Seeing the Bunnies in a global market as important as Macau shows that the Playboy Clubs are once again revolutionizing nightlife."
The Playboy Club has historically attracted high profile members and the most sought after entertainers of the time, and Macau will be no exception. Confirmed celebrity members, who are called Key Holders, presently include Lisa S, Michael Wong, Terrence Yin and Patricia Cheung, among others. The Club’s Las Vegas counterpart Key Holders includes some of the biggest names in music and entertainment, such as P. Diddy, Kim Kardashian, Usher, and Paris Hilton.
With Playboy inspired décor, the club will be reminiscent of the 1960’s Playboy Clubs. Guests will be able to enjoy high specification media rooms, live entertainment and private gaming.
In tandem with the Playboy Club opening will be return of the Playboy Bunny to Asia, an iconic mainstay of the Playboy Brand. On 15 October, Playboy Club Macau held a Bunny Hunt event to initiate the recruitment of Bunny hopefuls to serve as the new club’s brand ambassadors. Playboy received over 600 Playboy Bunny applications from Macau, Hong Kong, Australia, Romania, Brazil, the United States, Canada, and other countries around the world.
To celebrate the launch of Playboy Club Macau, internationally acclaimed Hong Kong fashion designer Pacino Wan has been chosen to add his style to the iconic Playboy Bunny Costume. Following in the footsteps of Roberto Cavalli, Pacino Wan will add Asian flare to the iconic Bunny Costume, originally created in 1960 by Hugh Hefner.
Playboy Club Macau joins Playboy Club Las Vegas at The Palms Casino Resort and Playboy Club Cancun, as well as future properties in development in Miami and London.
The Playboy Club’s history stretches over 50 years. Originally opened to the public in 1960 in Chicago, USA, it quickly became one of the world’s most successful night club chains which sold nearly 2.5 million membership keys and employed over 25,000 Playboy Bunnies.
