Antique and collectible expert, Reyne Hirsch, reveals everything about her eying at the PLAYBOY mansion with Hugh Hefner.
It has always been a dream to be invited by Hugh Hefner to the Playboy Mansion. To party with all the bunnies, and the hopes of getting a peek at the elusive “Grotto”.
Not everyone’s invited.
You’ve got to be on a celebrity guest list, or know someone who knows someone…
They weren’t for sale, but if you want to pretend like you were once invited to one of the parties, expect to pay anywhere from $50-200
What to wear?
If you wanted to “fit it” you’re going to need proper attire.
A red smoking jacket, perhaps one of Hugh’s giveaways will set you back a $1000-1500. If you want to go full on red silk pajamas, you’re going to have to spend about $3,000.
For your date, if she wants an authentic Playboy Bunny outfit, expect to pay around $10,000 – IF you can find one.
As you walk the halls of The Mansion, you might find paintings by renowned artist, Leroy Neiman. Neiman began working with Hefner and Playboy in the 1950s. He traveled the world painting the places he went to which graced the walls of the different Playboy Clubs. Paintings by Neiman have sold for as much as $90,000
Finally, if you made it to the game room for a round of pinball and thought a vintage Playboy pinball machine would be great in your man cave, be prepared to spend $500-2500, depending on condition.
