There's a fantastic two page spread illustration by Arnold Roth in the Winter 1966 issue of VIP - The Playboy Club Mag #12, showing all 5 levels of the infamous nightspot at 45 Park Lane in "misty but swinging London." So much fun detail here that I had to scan it very large so you guys could really take in all the amazing teeny awesomeness packed in every room. The illustration is sort of backwards when it comes to posting scans, so to begin your own journey into the club, you actually need to start at the bottom right corner of the second scan below, and work your way back up to the top left of the first scan. If you get lost then you better just call your mommy.
Anyway, not only is London misty and swinging, it's pretty damn cold too-- so first thing I'm doing when I get inside level one is make my way to The Nook to warm my buns by that cozy fireplace! Heading to the second level, Cartoon Corner Casino sounds fun, but I'm not really a gambler, so it's a quick jet over to the ultra vibratey Discotheque to totally get my groovez on!
After working up an awesome appetite, let's see what the witch is brewing up in the kitchen on the level 3 (love the rabbity chef hat!) --and hello, what's this? Are my eyes deceiving me? I say old chap, it's dinner with The Beatles in the VIP Room!! Only in London- WOW! More live music and bunny snugglin' on level 4 in the Playroom Cabaret, and then ultimately tis time to finish out my evening with an investigative tour of the Bunny Dressing Room on the 5th level-- you know, to find my lost cat (*wink!) So what do you think? Did we make the most of our trip to London's very own Playboy Club? What are your plans there this evening? :)
