Android-themed bar opens in Tokyo

At Bar Android in Shibuya, everybody knows your name--and probably has an Android device.


Looks like Tokyo's Cafe Ease, which offers an iPad for use on every table, has some competition. Bar Android (Facebook page in Japanese) has just set up shop as what appears to be the first Android-themed watering hole in Tokyo. Located in Shibuya, a few train stops from Cafe Ease, the pub is strangely open only on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. But that's Japan for you.

So if you're in that part of town, check it out. You'll find gingerbread cookies, possibly even frozen yogurt, eclairs, and doughnuts on the menu, with drinks and snacks at a reasonable 500 yen ($6) and meals going for 1,000 yen ($12). Though whether little green androids serve up the food, well, let us know.

In addition to hanging with other Android fans, patrons can charge their Android phones and chill out playing Angry Birds on their devices. Fortunately, rumor has it the bar also welcomes non-Android users.
