Sorry you missed the 60's

The Iconic Playboy Club London, on 14 Old Park Lane, Mayfair is launching ‘The Gallery at Playboy’ on March 20th with an art exhibition, appropriately titled ‘Sorry You Missed the Sixties’. The club will then play host to a number of famous artists and photographers spanning the decades courtesy of Chester’s famous Watergate Street Gallery, each exhibiting their finest work in this intimate gallery space immersed within the hub of the club’s Players Lounge.

Art lovers will have an exclusive chance to see (and purchase) the selection of iconic photographs taken by internationally acclaimed photographer Philip Townsend, being exhibited at the Playboy Club London from Tuesday March 20th through to the end of April.

The photographs date back to the 60’s when Townsend, THE famous celebrity snapper of the sixties captured screen icons and household names alike across this magical decade. As the Sixties swung, photographer Philip Townsend was there to record all the prime people of the time, beautiful and ugly alike. He encapsulated the debs and their beaux, lords and club owners, press barons and business moguls, stars and socialites, royals and ruffians, and above all the new aristocrats of pop and rock, spearheaded by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

Grab the opportunity to see the fabulous nostalgia filled collection – an art exhibition not to be missed. Non-members are welcome to visit the exhibition from March 21st- April 30th, Monday-Saturday between 12 and 9pm, and anytime Sundays. Playboy Club London is a 24 hour venue. For information email:
