The Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. Robot Restaurant puts on an eclectic one hour cabaret show with performances full of flashing lights, dancers, drums and techno music. Actually “Restaurant” is something of a misnomer when you are talking about Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant. While you can eat there, the venue is not designed around eating, but light, color, with every surface fluorescent and polished to a mirror gloss. Moreover, there is a spectacular robot arena. The place is fabulously decorated lounge as you wait to be escorted to your seat for the robot cabaret show. Robot Restaurant is the only entertainment outfit of its kind in the world and an attraction for clientele ranging from world-class celebrities to couples.
When you arrive you find on the stage, a lady-band clad in metallic bikinis and angel wings is playing soft lounge music. But this is as a waiting room to the show which is the main action. It starts when the robots come out to play. There are robots shaped like women and robots shaped like action heroes. Also, there are robots shaped like dinosaurs, pandas, sharks and Transformers. In the show there are women dressed in showgirl glitter, armor and flashing LED s. Some of them are riding bikes, tanks and glittering horses while they are playing drums.
Before the show starts, they give their guests several warnings. They include warnings that “big cameras” are not allowed to take up-close photos of the dancers, not to touch the dancers, and to not get out of our seats.
You might have your dinner only before the show starts. During the show you can drink some beverages. Alcoholic drinks are available too. The menu includes all the international and special Japanese food. You can choose a delicious dish of rice and fish. Furthermore, there is the bento box that includes a mini bottle of green tea.
