    Robot Restaurant

    In one of the basements in Shinjuku is the famous Robot Restaurant where entertainment is more enormous than the drinks and food. Its entry fee includes a bento and a three-hour long show of giant robots, women dancing in colorful and neon outfits, and so much more.


    Lock Up Cafe

    A horror themed restaurant chain spread all over Japan is a fun and creepy way to enjoy your meal! The restaurant gives you a real prison experience with its walls, lights, decorations and even the waiters’ uniforms. There are private cells that can accommodate couples and are perfect for celebrating occasions such as birthdays, reunions, family and friends gathering.

    If Lock Up Cafe was too soft for you, expect a fun night when you are headed for the Alcatraz E.R. It is a place for cocktails and outrageous menu. Outrageous in a sense that food and drinks are presented in a fun and wacky way. There are ‘inappropriate’ desserts, creepy drinks, and funny cocktails. It may not be a place for family with kids, but for a group of adults who want to have a different kind of experience, Alcatraz E.R. is a very funky place to dine at.
