Playboy: Hello there. Where are we? Ashley: You’re in Atlanta, at Buckhead’s new hot spot, Havana Club. Playboy: Amazing. It’s like being in Cuba but surrounded by beautiful Georgia peaches. Ashley: That’s the point. Playboy: Guess you wouldn’t be able to scare up a cigar, would you? Ashley: Actually we have a full cigar bar in the back if the mood suits you. Playboy: Do you work the cigar bar as well? Ashley: No, I think they like to keep me out in the front. Playboy: Shrewd. How do you like working here? Ashley: It’s really cool. Most of the clientele are regulars and have become friends, so basically I get paid to hang out and do shots with my friends. Playboy: We couldn’t help noticing that you are hanging out a little. Ashley: What can I say? I have to have the girls out! That’s just how I roll. Playboy: What kind of drink is your specialty? Cuba Libre? Ashley: Like I said, I like to do shots with my friends. I’ll mix up some a.m.’s—have one now and you’ll want to party into the a.m. A.M.
