Located in the hotel zone district of Mexico's Cancun, the 12,000-foot property celebrated with an invitation-only VIP party for Playboy Club members and a red-carpet celebrity event on Saturday, December 4.
Joining Playboy Club Las Vegas at The Palms Casino Resort and Playboy Club Macao, the Cancun property was designed by Archon Design with influence from the original Playboy Club in Chicago. Design features include an authentic Mexican hand-punched metallic wall featuring the Playboy Rabbit Head Design. In addition, pieces from Playboy's multi-billion dollar art collection will be on display, as well as a commissioned illustration of the Cancun Playboy Bunny by pinup artist Don Lewis.
"I am pleased to bring the Playboy Club to Mexico for the first time and to combine the sexy sophistication of the Playboy brand with the international allure of Cancun," said Hugh Hefner, founder and chief creative officer, of Playboy Enterprises.
