Rampant Rabbit / NEWS HUNGRY

There’s nothing like a sexy slice of nostalgia to put a bunny-hop in our step on a Wednesday morning, and that’s exactly what we’re getting with the opening of the new Playboy Club London on Saturday. Launching on what was once the Rendezvous Mayfair Casino at Old Park Lane (just a stone’s throw from Playboy’s previous incarnation), the new club – all Mad Men chic, with red checked sofas and bunny silhouette posters – comprises a cocktail bar, dining room, lounge, smoking terrace and barbershop. But its undisputed crowning glory is the casino, found upstairs, open 24/7 and containing no less than 18 tables on which to splash the cash – American roulette, blackjack and poker included. Naturally, bunny girls shimmy throughout – all dolled up in too-tight satin bodices, collars, cuffs, cottontails and requisite bunny ears – and are either manning gaming tables, serving drinks or entertaining gentleman gamblers with their womanly ways. Naturally, feminists have been up in arms about London‘s return to full-bodied form, but we think it’s a retro nod to the glamorous days of yesteryear when it was all done in good fun. We just hope it isn’t a trashy flash in the pan.
