I don’t like passing on rumors, but if I see or hear the same rumor enough times I figure that there must be fire near all the smoke. The most recent rumor is that the Playboy Club, which is closing at Palms, will be re-opening next year at Cosmopolitan. First there was a comment on the story at the Las Vegas Sun and then there was a tweet from Global Gaming Biz, which also pointed to the story in the Sun. More recently the often inaccurate Robin Leach tweeted that he’s hearing the same rumor.
While the sources of this rumor aren’t the most reliable the addition of the Playboy Club to the Cosmopolitan doesn’t seem too far fetched given the recent changes going on at Cosmo. With the person that brought in all the “cool” entertainment recently leaving Cosmo and the addition of the EA Sports Bar the the hip factor seems to be leaving Cosmopolitan slowly, but surely.
The addition of the Playboy Club would fall in line with unhip, but seemingly popular addition of the EA Sports Bar. It would also continue the shift away from hip non-gamblers that are visiting the casino. While it may not be the most hip club and brand the Playboy Club was certainly popular and would draw a different demographic. Potentially a demographic of people that may gamble.
This is all just rumor from various places that don’t seem reputable, but the Playboy Club moving to Cosmopolitan seems very possible.
