LAS VEGAS March 16, 2012 (AP)
Officials say the Playboy Club at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas will close in June.
No reason was given, and no specific date was set.
A statement released Friday by casino and N9NE Group spokesman Larry Fink
said the parting was amicable so each could "pursue new brand opportunities in Las Vegas nightlife."
A Playboy Enterprises spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to messages.
Fink said he couldn't immediately provide details about other plans for the space at the high-rise casino.
The club at the Palms opened in October 2006, with women dressed in bunnies dealing cards.
It represented the first Playboy Club to open since patriarch Hugh Hefner closed the last one in 1988 in Lansing, Mich.
Others have opened in Macau, Cancun and London.

I have never been to that or any other Playboy Club, even when they were fairly common. I think I did ask this question once before around here, but if I got an answer, my senility got in the way of comprehension: Does the "Playboy Casino" area at the Palms use the same Palms Casino chips or some that say "Playboy" on them? If there are bunny chips, I should try to get one before the place closes, and I have one visit planned before then -- WoVCon][.

This does not surprise me. It never felt like a Playboy club to me (not that I knew the first generation of clubs). It was just like any casino but with pretty dealers in bunny outfits. Nothing wrong with that, but I would have preferred something like the Maid Cafes they have in Japan where you get to chat with a girl one on one.

Have you been to any of those Maid Cafes? I saw a lot of them when I was in Japan.

No, but I've saw a show about them, and think they are a fantastic idea. If I had the bankroll I'd love to open a franchise here, probably in San Jose where there are a lot of nerdy math geeks like me that need help talking with girls.
