This summer’s HYPER JAPAN Festival features the return of a HYPER JAPAN favourite after four long years away, the HYPER Maid Café!
Run in partnership with Ai My Maid and Reztron and themed after the well-known Akihabara-style Maid cafe model, the HYPER Maid Café will be situated on the second floor of our HYPER Live! house at the O2’s Building Six. Besides treats like Japanese sweets and ice cream, it will feature a wide variety of both traditional and board games such as Jenga and Connect 4, as well as retro videogames, which can be played with the maids there. Other activities will include things like origami, drawing, singing and dancing along with the maids. There’ll even be opportunities for taking “cheki” – a custom decorated polaroid picture with one of the maids.
There’s no admission fee, although there will be charges for food and drink, as well as small additional charges to play games and do activities with the maids.
The Café will be open throughout HYPER JAPAN Festival, although it will be closed for one hour during one of the stage performances in the HYPER Live! area, exact time TBA.
Ai My Maid are a pop up maid cafe group with a traditional Japanese theme mixed with the fun energy of Akihabara’s maid cafe’s. They aim to give customers a highly enjoyable and unique experience with delicious food and drink, addictive games and entertaining performances. With plenty of prizes to be won and activities to take part in we are sure it will be an amazing experience for everyone.
