Hugh Hefner slept here. – The Background
When Hef called this place home--as he did until the 1980s--music played and lights burned until the wee hours. The Playboy Magazine mogul threw lavish parties here, attended by celebrities and beautiful centerfold wannabes wearing bunny ears. The 48-room mansion also doubled as Hefner's corporate office. A pajama-clad Hefner sometimes worked out of his bedroom, clutching his ever-present pipe and using his circular bed as a desk. The building at one time contained an indoor pool.
Now the Bunnies are no longer PC, Hef's in California and the ornate brick building on the Gold Coast is the private residence of three Chicago families. It sits unobtrusively in this posh section of town, quiet and surrounded by a black iron fence.
