Stopped by Sunday night after the bears game. The bar was closed. Smh.
Place your bets....How fast will Playpen get busted since they hired LaLa to tend bar ?
The Playpen is the same, pathetic place it has been for the last several years. You aren't missing much. Same bathrooms and the women aren't anything to write home about.
I haven't been here in over a year as I stopped in last and only saw 2 overweight women that weren't my type so I've stayed away. How is the pen looking these days? Does it even have any dancers or women other than the bartender anymore? From reading the most recent comments, it sounds like the bar is on its last legs.
"She always used to say: "go ahead and feed the kitty" at the end of her dances and really just stood out to me."
classic stripper line.
Does anyone reading who frequented this bar during its heyday know what happened to a blonde dancer named Jessie who used to dance at this bar in the early 2000's period? She often used to dance with Haley before she passed away and used to drive a pink jeep. I'm just curious to know if she's still dancing. She always used to say: "go ahead and feed the kitty" at the end of her dances and really just stood out to me.
so... who did they hire to bartend now that it reopened ?
That is indeed true. The Playpen is back open for business. It just opened recently.
I wouldn't expect much, though as its glory days are long gone.
Heard this place is opening back up. True?
So does anyone know if this place is closed for good or is it open again?
I haven't been here in several years. I referred to it as the Gaypen because back in the day when it was super crowded on Friday and Saturday nights there always seemed to be at least one guy, drunk or whatever he was, who attempted to put his arm around a patron that he didn't know. I was the victim on multiple occasions until I finally stopped going here. Too many homo's and not enough decent women.
There are bathrooms but they are like gas station bathrooms. Filthy as hell.
Is there even working bathrooms or do patrons just shit and piss on the floor
Just shut this shit hole down already. Literally shit hole
The dick massage girls you mean
I doubt it. It smelled like shit when there was no dancers there cus they got booted for sucking cock in the bar.
the raw sewage smell came from the "massage girls" working there
I'm guessing it was the combination of the drug sales and the smell of raw sewage.
So it was the drugs that brought it down and not the fsct that ot smelled like straight shit in there
Why am I not surprised? That place was a haven for drugs for years especially 10-15 years ago. I witnessed guys snorting coke in the men's room on multiple occasions. Playpen was on it's last legs for awhile and it was only a matter of time before it closed.
I'm told this dump was busted for drug sales !
Is hers the page that says "getting that money at boss lady?" If it is, she doesn't look bad based on the pics but I've never met her in person. Does she offer otc and if so, why is she in a relationship unless it's an open relationship?
Is she related to Steve Kerr, coach of the Golden St. Warriors?
Do you remember Adrianna? She's still at the Playpen, but she's works as a bar whore in street clothes. Her real name is Solange Kerr, according to her Facebook page
I probably saw Mona because I used to stop in 1-2 times a month around that time period but I never heard her name mentioned so I'm not sure who you're referring to.
I was sad when Haley passed away. I always used to enjoy talking to her/getting dances from her and we talked about hooking up not too long before she passed away. Not sure if she was just leading me on or not but she seemed serious about it.
Did anyone reading this board ever have the chance to hook up with her otc back in the day and if so, was it as wild of a time as I imagine it would be with her?
She passed away last week. RIP Mona
A bartender. A nice one. Some would say the nicest one. Left there about oh, eight or nine years ago.
Was Mona a white, blonde dancer? Or maybe I have her confused with someone else.
RIP Mona one of the nicest person to work there
did she quit bar tending here ?
What's her name? I would say that's an upgrade from what is typically there...
This is what Playpen looks like nowadays. Washed up girls giving dances and massages in street clothes. And Sharon the bartender is a still a hardcore stuck up bitch. My advice is to stay away from this place for good because it's down to its last legs.

Anyone know if destiny still works here and what days?
I hear Jodi is back bartendering a couple days a week, anyone know when? She was always FUN and pleasant.
So what's the roster here? Candy Solange Twins Destiny??? Anyone else?
Hailey was definitely a wild chick who got drunk a little too much but she was always overly nice to me when I used to stop in. After reading that she had a rare disease, now I understand more why she used to drink so much and party a lot in general as it was probably hard for her to cope with having the disease she had. I used to get a kick out of her yelling "Ay papi!" sometimes at the top of her lungs when she got dances from the Mexican customers. She was a real fun chick and a sweetheart.
Hailey was arguably the best dancer Playpen has had imo. She looked like a bikini model when I first started going there 15 years ago and she looked great in that red, white and blue bikini she used to wear when she worked on Sunday afternoons. Unfortunately I heard that she was a partier and the drugs took a toll on her looks over the years but she was still looked pretty good when I last saw her 5-6 years ago was great conversation and gave great dances. R.I.P. Hailey, you are missed.
I am sorry to inform you that she passed away a few years ago. She had some rare disease that ran in her family that they pretty much all died at a fairly young age. it is a shame. She was a genuinely nice and fun person.
Are there any good Asian dancers at this club? I love Asian women.
Does anyone know what happened to a white dancer named Haley who also went by the name Laurie at times, that used to work here back when there were dancers? She was from Wisconsin and usually worked on Friday or Saturday nights and occasionally on Sunday in the afternoon. She was arguably my favorite dancer of all time and now that I'm single again I'd like to try my luck with her if she's still around.
$2 Domestic and Imports PLUS $4-for-$60 Full Contact, Full Friction Dances tomorrow night! Our Happy Hour Last All Night Long!!
Nope, this candy is a skinny older white woman. She might be a tad strung out on the scene.
Is the Candy that you mentioned the same Puerto Rican Candy who also used to work at Carl's? The Candy that I'm referring to was on the slender side, she used to wear glitter a lot and she gave great sensual dances.

Anyone know what happened to jersey? or have contact info on her?
Last night there were three has been strippers .... Not good at all
get rid of that rude old lady Sharon
AMEN... 2 customers and no dancers last night
This place blows. I visited late at night on a recent Thursday. There were *two* "dancers", both overweight Latinas fetchingly dressed in jeans, sweatshirts, and flip-flops. Go to Bobby's!
Is there a best time to get a back massage? When are the girls around?
whats the 411 on the new Asian dancer ? she was busy when i saw her
Was told Jersey moved and bar is too far for her to work. They did not mention if she was working anywhere else. If I heard word I will post. Anyone know what days the Puerto Rican girl Melissa works? And if she is good in the back room?
any one heard from jersey? haven't seen her in awhile. Did she end up working somewhere else? anyone have contact info
I believe you are referring to the owner's son. Pretty nice guy and stays out of the customer's way for the most part. I don't think the dancer situation is under his control. They still don't have a license to operate. They have girls giving back rubs... Lila and Adrianna pretty much the only girls that work there during the week. Anyone else know who still works here?
Who is the grey hair at the end of the bar that is always there? The owner? Will he allow girls in the bar? No real harm in that.
it was dead as all hell last night
why is this place still open ?
yes - you cannot get a dance at playpen but they do have a"backroom " for a little private time they do have a number of has been's, workin the bar in hopes you will part with some $$$
That should have said sleaziness. Stupid word check.
I haven't been here in years but used to enjoy it in all its sleepiness. I remember a girl named Lucky who used to work very hard for her money. Are there really no longer girls there? What a shame!
you've got to pay to use the play room $$$
whats the real deal with using the backroom !
be sure to paddle your canoe in and tie off to the bar ... the water should be deep today after the heavy rain !
Playpen no longer has dancers or customers ! you might find a lonely bartender crying her eyes out .... you can thank the town's mayor for putting a bar out of business
please tell me how much i can make here working day shift i work as a dancer but is to far for me to drive everyday hb is much closer thank you n have wonderful day
is she giving away free drinks- food and cake ?
I know the party is this Friday at the new bar, does anyone know what time it is? I am assuming day shift.
Stopped in on Thurs. $1 draft beer. Still have the girls, fully dressed, asking to give massages.
I would like to know
the north east corner of Armitage and Mannhiem rd melrose park
Gibe us a little help. I googled, but need a town.
forget Playpen and drive north to J's new bar n grill . everything is new and Annette bar tending and they also have dancers !
wtf? no more animal plant ?
Jody quit. Now we can get a drknk!
does anyone know where the tattooed lady is working now ?
They ever get their shit together and get the dancers back?
He verry easily could. Just has to walk into the smelly old Men's Room. lol
Heard they might be getting the girls back if they clean up the place and remodel the bathrooms.
this place was great for years BUT it went down the toilet in the last few years with the lousy GHETTO drug dealin whores they allowed to work here....
Even longer for me. Thanks for the good times. Here's hoping that mayor drowns in piss.
Fred and Ron, sorry to see this happen to a classic bar. Playpen was my regular stop 5 times a week for 15 years. Sad
the only person in this bar is the stupid bar tender ! she sits alone all bye her self till its time to go home
is this bar still open ? did any of the bartenders quit ?
i see they ex-dancers that no other bar will hire are trying to sell massages !
Carls is still on good terms with the mayor.. playpen fucked up all by them self and the town is bleeding them out. i am willing to bet they will be busted again very soon...
Heard what happened to the pen is going to happen to Carl's real soon the last two are Bobby's and Louie's because there in melrose not stone park
Hey, , , , what happened to Bella ?? Did she end up movin somewhere else??? Anyone know?
is playpen going to close or will Stone Park allow them to hire dancers again ?
she's as dumb as they come... she talks how she runs a clean operation... maybe she needs glasses so she can see whats going on ?
Playpen was a dump, the girls were skanks. Anything for 5 dollars and a back seat, that's why they got shut down.
Nikki must not be to worried was in their there back to their old ways of tits out getting getting fingered and grabbing cock the usual stuff
cook county was told to visit all of the bars not just PIG PEN. Niki told all of her dancers that Bobbys has new rules in hopes she doesn't get busted like your shit hole bar....
Bobbys is in melrose park does not effect it at all know ur area
the pig pen ruined it for us to make money at Bobbys ! you really know how to piss off the Mayor and the cops.
it looks like playpen fuck up one to many times...
The girls were ticketed? Then removed from the bar?
i stopped in Sunday night and no dancers showed up to work ?
the bar is clean... its the 100 year old dancers and bar tenders that are decomposing that give off that shitty smell of rotting flesh n stinky worn out ass and pussy !
This place smells like shit! The whole damn bar No lie. I do not understand how anyone could come here and drink let alone get a dance. I had to leave before I even could get my beer. Nastiest shit ever
the employees helped kill off this club and have no one to blame but themselves...
Well the owners are looking to sell the Pigpen.
The police visits make everyone uneasy.
the pen can now save a lot of money by laying off their doorman now that the police are there every half hour ! hopefully they will lower the drink prices ...
A drug sniffing dog wouldnt know where to go first in this place.
The cops come in the bar twice a hour. All the dancers try to stop dancing. They pull people over in the parking lot.
the owners and bartenders do not seem to give a shit about their bar let alone the super low quality dancers. the place should have been torn down 30 years ago...
Get your crackheads and Dope fien "dancers" under control. They are screwing up business for everyone else on the street. Maybe y'all should do drug tests before hiring these busters
air dances are worthless .....
if all the customers stay away, maybe the lousy bartenders and dancers will quit
I stopped going because I got tired of the bartender hitting me up for $10 drinks for the dancers.
playpen is hurting for paying customers BIG TIME... this bar is dying off fast. take a good look at the low quality of dancers... they all qualify for AARP .
I heard they may allow some privacy during dances again. Has anyone been there lately to find out?
No more tips for Brenda she is rude and tips herrself and then demands tips. See ya old bag .
I was thinking that myself..... Given they barely wanted to flush this shit hole out after the flood...the bad smells.. Might take a break from this place for a little bit ill all the booze gets cycled through a bit.. Good luck ordering a pizza here!! Be sure to wear a diaper!!
What did they do with the cases of beer that were sitting in sewer water? Did they wash the bottles or are you sucking on bottles contaminated by all sorts of nasty diseases?
maybe they should fill the building with massengill douche to help rid the place of the nasty old stinky pussy smell !
Please open the doors. Install an exhaust fan.
a real pigpen smells better and is probably more sanitary
i cannot believe this dump opened right after the flood... it smells like hell
the health department must have been happy that Playpen used 2 feet of water to clean the bar !
Jodie is hot. Liz is hotter.
The place is in thr middle of Lake Manheim. I am sure it will be cleaned by a pro.
Jodie I have never had bad service from Jodie. Wish all the girls were as nice as her. Maybe we could talk her into a dance. She has a great body.
i hope they stopped bye and begged for jukebox money and then they walk away and never play any music ? they are good at that !
lets see..... In the 45min I was there, I only saw 3 actual dances, 2 of which were already going when I walked in. 5 girls spent their time just talking to "customers", never doing any dances. at least 2 the girls were completely drunk/useless. 3 were more interested in doing god-knows-what instead of dancing. and yet they have the balls to complain about not making money?!?!?!
no need to walk inside when you can easily see that the parking lot is nearly empty....
take a look around... the bar is all but empty lately ! very few dancers and the customers seem to have found another bar spend their money at.
Sad. But the information is true.Glad you could joinus.
Actually, if this kind of childish gossip is all some people can handle they should take a fresh look at their pitiful lives.
really? who? (apparently the board didnt like the first time I asked this, which is the blank post)
Another bartender fired.
the bar tenders and 98% of the "dancers" are a fuckin joke at this bar.
You think management would get everyone together. We are not here to keep the BARTENDERS HAPPY. Seems like that's the night time theme. Less dancers and moody bartenders. Who care if I order a water or want a cold mug.
Someone wants Anon to call them back?
the bar back would have ass raped him !
If Anon would have tipped the toothless bar back he might have got laid... or worse
Hello anon I`m the tall blonde that gave you a ride home you never text or emailed I hope to hear from you soon
All the bartenders are Bitchy.
Thought Jodi would be hot. Hair extensions chubby, wrinkles and as you said crabby.
With business falling off. Ownership seeing how well Fred Jr. is doing will now hire a another male bartender. Meanwhile the blonde keeps serving us watered down drinks.
all she does is complain... she thinks the whole world owes her because she use to dance 30 years ago...
Jody goes to the other bars and complains about her job and customers that tip her and pay her rent. She should just stay at home.
they did hire quality dancers 30 years ago... and they are still dancing here !
when will they hire a few quality dancers ?
he buys dances and then runs and tells on the girls that flash their tits...
And who would that customer be? Bunt? WTF!
Watch out for friendly a friendly regular he will turn on you and tjen get you fired
Dave we know it's you posting this stuff
is it really true a few bangers decided to torch a car in the lot for fun ?
The New Doorman is Huge
what ... when...where... who ??? everything is a - okay because nothing has ever happened in this fine establishment other then the Sunday night bingo game where all money goes to the convent a few blocks away...
I heard there is new dancers
what happened with the off duty cop and the gangbangers??
She only works when she isn't bitchin moanin smokin or watching her favorite tv shows n checking her cell phone. As you can imagine it leaves very little time to actually work at playpen
When does the bartender Jodi work
why was an off duty cop drinking and carrying his gun in playpen?
you can park for free at playpen this friday saturday and sunday and walk to Scores !
Barbie, Reina, Jazzy, Bella, Sophia, and Vanessa
Do they still have girls
Bandana Mike was barred! After reviewing the camera he picked up too many bottles and glasses and there was not enough for the patrons to throw when the fight broke out . They could of just docked his pay or taken away his Christmas bonus.
aside from the smoker room out front it doesn't look like they have spent a penny on the place since it opened... now that the bangers decided to put their stink on the place its a good time to move up the street and let this place close for good.
after this weekend you would think the cheap ass owners will hire a stronger doorman and pay someone to clean up bottles and stock that way the door can watch the bar full time and do his job before someone gets really hurt when a bartender stocks no one is watching the bar carls and bobbys have two on big nights and one every night much safer at least stone parks finest are among the fastest to respond anywhere i have seen
this place could give away free drinks and it would still be empty
Monday and thursday bucket specials
$1 drafts wednesday and sunday- no one tells you
who is the doorman ?
the big drug addict doorman is back and ready to lose the door money playing pool again. take the money and run
this dump is getting so bad , your two bar mascots are complaining about the dancers and bartenders !
Any particular time and day during the week when there are a few latina dancers working?
playpen is open and they offered 1/2 priced dances till midnight
Bar open New Year's Day?
Playpen has no manager. Bartenders are the boss. Owners watch close.
the world famous stock boys... Mike and Johnny were told they cannot even hand out an empty dirty glass when they are behind the bar... the owner watched every second of the video tape for fear of loosing money with a free glass of water being handed out..... they cannot risk getting fired from their super high paying stock boy job just to help keep the customers happy while the sorry ass bar tenders are out back hot boxin smokes for an hour or two. your better off BYOB to this bar so you won't die of thirst.
The new manager hired to control the crowd on Friday and Saturday after midnight isn't shy about giving free drinks when he jumps behind the bar. After 4 years of coming in they were my first free drinks. Wait for the bartender to have a smoke. The girls love him too. The normal stock guy should be able to do the same. He won't even give a glass of ice. Not good for business. The doorman just stands by the door. He could help too.
no chance in hell... Margret was caught by an off duty cop with a dirty cock in her mouth , which shut down that dance area for good...
Any chance they let you get a dance around the corner again? Hard to enjoy it when you have 3 dudes a bar stool away.
Not sure....someone else may know
did Kayla ever start dancing again or is she still bar tending at Arthur's ?
they need to keep Anon around so that they have something to complain about....
Anon did they finally ban you and your bad music taste?
these stupid bitches never wash their rags and rarely bathe ... the train wreck they are trying to hide under the rags isn't worth a $1 dollar dance. you can keep them all to yourself player !
I don't now.....There was a girl with amazing tits there on Monday!!
No hetero guy gives two shits about whether a girl wears the same outfit or not if the girl underneath is attractive. The problem is whats under the outfit hasnt been up to snuff
What's the word on Vanessa with face tatoo She gives a really hot dance. Does she do take out?
the average age of the dancers here is 62 years old !
Looking at the girls wearing the same ass outfits is scaring us away. If they invest in new sexy outfits and heels, we'd come more. They'd get a nice return on their investments. Oh yeah, and hygiene is important too because I can't stand girls with breath coming from a blow jobs they'd give the johns. They're a bunch a washed up druggies just looking at them alone.
