October 21st, 2014 by in Information

“The Robot Restaurant” in Tokyo is probably the craziest restaurant in the entire world

Japan at its most absurd and entertaining…

Giant robots dancing to electronic music? Laser shows and flashing LEDs? Lovely, shark-riding ladies fighting killer aliens? Bento boxes? It’s hard to imagine that anything can offer a more uniquely Tokyo experience than the Robot Restaurant in East Shinjuku. With a stage show that stretches the definition of terms like “elaborate” and “bizarre”, the restaurant has quickly become one of the most popular venues in the city.

We were dazzled by the Robot Restaurant from the moment we spotted it. The entire facade was illuminated in blinding LED lights and giant lady robots were roving about the foyer:




A band approximating Daft Punk’s style was rocking out behind the giant robots, and everything was flashing and loud and totally over-the-top. Sensory overload? Definitely, and we hadn’t even picked up our tickets yet. I suspected that the show was going to be more like sensory rape.

From the moment you enter the Robot Restaurant, you are going to be entertained… or perhaps fall into an epileptic fit. It’s just sensory overload. No expense was spared, and no design idea was too crazy. Show up early enough to grab a pre-show drink in the upstairs lounge… because you’ve never seen a lounge like this. It’s like the world’s most outrageous interior designers were given crayons, glue sticks, glitter and mescalin, and told to go crazy. Everything is mirrored and shining:
