You know how people go to Hooters to ogle women in tight t-shirts and hot pants? This is kind of like that, but with muscle-bound men instead. Welcome to Japan’s Macho Cafe.

Located in Tokyo, the cafe has been featured on television and online. Recently, website Sirabee visited the cafe, which has been only opened for very limited dates (sadly, this isn’t a daily thing...yet).
But the days it was opened, the Macho Cafe drew quite a line.
At Macho Cafe, you get service with a smile and an extra helping of muscles.
Food and drink are on the expensive side, but if you order a can of beer, your macho waiter will pour it and then crush the can. This pancake meal (which, in Japanese, has a pun on the word “muscle”) is 1,620 yen (US$13.50), which is a lot fir what you get. But the price does include posing:
For the equivalent of $27, you can also order the “Wall of Meat.”
For several minutes, you get a merry-go-round of muscle.
No, they don’t put protein powder in your coffee, but they’re are promoting it on their t-shirts. The macho cafe’s limited-time only runs are over for now. Be sure to hit the gym, while waiting for their next.
