The brightest minds on Earth have varying thoughts when discussing the possible outcomes of artificial intelligence performing certain tasks that normally require human intelligence. In more and more fields of industry, “robots” are performing tasks for humans and excelling. One such example of this in Las Vegas – and it’s a unique one – is found at a bar called The Tipsy Robot inside Planet Hollywood.
The Tipsy Robot is the world’s first land-based robotic bar, and veteran hospitality industry leader Rino Armeni has brought it to life. The bar employs two cocktail shaking robots – serving up drinks and dance moves on the Las Vegas Strip. Offering signature robotic cocktails developed by master mixologist Francesco Lafranconi, as well as custom options, the space allows guests to interact with the robots through the platform and watch the twin robots shake, stir, strain, muddle and pour drinks in a highly social, digital environment. Quite the scene!
The Tipsy Robot custom robots are designed and produced in Italy. Matched with cosmic-inspired video streaming on the bar’s nine big screens and assisted by less futuristic but equally impressive human staff known as Tipsy Robot’s “Galactic Ambassadors,” the humanized, formerly industrialized, bartending robots will be set in a high-tech venue with plenty of thoughtful and approachable touches to the interior design.
In addition to the signature cocktails served at the Robot Bar, The Tipsy Robot also features drinks served by humans at the Human Bar. Expect robot themed signature cocktails such as Deep Space Brew (Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Luxardo Amaretto and Coffee Liqueur), Time Machine (Bayou Light Rum, Tres Agaves Sour, Grapefruit and Luxardo Maraschino), Droid of Dublin (Jameson, Lxuardo Amaretto, Tres Agaves Sour and Mint), among several others.
The Tipsy Robot is open Sunday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight. For more information, call (702) 659-7711 or visit online at thetipsyrobot.com.
