The Playboy Mansion could soon have a new owner … a guy famous in the nightclub biz who wants to turn Hef‘s place into an ultra-exclusive, members only club.
We’ve learned Jeff Beacher, the brains behind Beacher’s Madhouse, has met with Playboy execs about buying the 6-acre Holmby Hills estate and creating a partnership with Playboy Enterprises in which Beacher could use the Playboy name for the club.
We’re told Beacher has drawn up paperwork for a $90 million offer … comprised of $12 mil from Beacher and the rest from partners.
Beacher confirmed to TMZ he’s serious, and the plan would be to sink $20 mil for renovations, keeping the main structure intact. He wants to build 5 bungalows for guests.
Beacher says he’ll submit the offer as early as today.
A top Playboy exec tells TMZ they’d seriously entertain Beacher’s proposal, although not necessarily the price. The property is listed for $200 mil.
The real wild card is zoning … Holmby Hills is one of the most exclusive areas of L.A., with sprawling estates. It’s unclear if Beacher and company could get a variance for a club.
