The lights are on
After touring the Tokyo Game Show, we took a night off to check out
Capcom's Themed restaurant: Capbar. It turns out, it's crazier than TGS.
All of the food and drinks at Capbar are named after the company's games. You can order a Resident Evil drink that comes with colored herbs to mix in, a giant hunk of dinosaur meat as seen in Monster Hunter, or a Ace Attorney tower of onion rings complete with a tiny gavel. Screens along the wall show trailers and game footage for Capcom's upcoming titles. But probably the crazies part of the experience is how the servers "entertain" you while you eat. If two people order Street Fighter-themed drinks at the same time, the servers pantomime a Street Fighter brawl when they deliver the drinks. Another waiter interrupted the evening a few times to reenact scenes from Ace Attorney. If you're in Japan don't miss this unique sightseeing opportunity.
We recommend the brains!

Soo... much... flashy Japy-ness. If they put a restaurant or two in the States, they would make an incredible amount of money. I don't think that many Japanese companies quite grasp how many Americans go crazy over flashy Japanese pop-culture.
Also, was I the only one to misread the restaurant name as "Crapbar" at first?
I want to go!
This may be the best thing of all time.
If I ever visit Japan someday, this will definitely be on my itinerary.
Looks sooo much better than the Biohazard Cafe i went to on opening day!
that is strange to say the least
oh japan what *** thing wont you come up with
Wow you gys went to a restaraunt in Japan and ordred onion rings and some sort of pizza looking thing? Were there no burgers or chicken nuggets on the menu?
Phoenix Wright sure can pack down a ton of onion rings. He and I have something in common, then!
Wow, never thought I'd hear another video game-themed restaurant after the Biohazard one, let alone another from Capcom.
So awesome I find myself without the words to fully describe it. I wish there was one of these in the states.
