<p>Go behind the scenes at the hottest party for football's biggest night.</p>
Another year, another Super Bowl, another extravagant party to set the whole weekend off like only Playboy can. After radio giants Imagine Dragons left the stage and the lights went down over the Bud Light Hotel Lounge, our crew moved in to get the night started with a few thousand of our closest friends, famous and otherwise. And it all went down on New York City’s iconic Pier 86.
Famous faces in the mix included Nelly, Laura Prepon, Aaron Paul, Estelle, Evander Holyfield and Workaholics star Adam DeVine. Not to mention our very own heir apparent, Cooper Hefner, who oversaw the night’s proceedings. To the beats of DJ Solange Knowles’ superhip sonic selections, our guests mingled amid ice bars and Mini Coopers as the celebs and Playmates made their way down the red carpet.
Later in the night, Nelly took to the stage for a stellar performance and was joined by PMOY Raquel Pomplun and her Playmate entourage (Jessa Hinton, Summer Altice, Tiffany Toth, Pilar Lastra, Pamela Horton, Jaclyn Swedberg, Gemma Lee Farrell, Kennedy Summers, Bryiana Noelle, Alana Campos, Alison Waite and Michelle McLaughlin) to cap it all off. Not bad for a little party on the harbor to get the Super Bowl weekend started.
As always, a hearty thank-you to our friends at Bud Light (for putting on the best hotel lounge party since R. Kelly made it a thing), A&E’s Bates Motel, History’s Vikings (season two premiere Thursday, February 27), Mini Cooper, Buffalo David Bitton and Jean Paul Gaultier.
