    Default maid cafe in uk?

    dya think its a good idea? me and my other half were thinking of making a night-club/ maid cafe, but we wanted to know what others would think about it and wheter it owuld really hit it off.
    were hoping it doesnt do the same as it did in America and go like chalk and cheese for a few years.

    the only thing is where to put it up and how often dya think we should do cosplay days, obviously it will be simple cosplays for the first few months, then maybe as the popularity rises so will the amount of requests for different cosplays. even the staff at night will be in lolita cosplay, but the thing about the night work is it will be an "alternative" bar.

    post comments on your veiws, theres already one in the US how about making one in the UK?

    OHOHOH!!!! and if you go to www.goodsmilecompany.com THEY HAVE AN ENGLISH WEBSITE NOW!!!! and let me tell you fellow Otaku THE FIGURINES ARE AMAZING! O.O

    That website does not exist.

    As for maid cafés, I think they'd only really succeed outside Japan in a major city and only if you really went all-out to make it almost a caricature of the original idea.

    Maid cafes in California are called "masseuses"/sp, but I think the UK could use one.Give one to all those chaps!They deserve it.

    I know a few good fellows who want a maid cafe.
    I believe they deserve a maid cafe.

    Actually, there is/was a maid café/store/art gallery in Culver City according to Wikipedia by the name of Royal-T.

    Either way, I doubt it's what you're thinking when you talk about a massage parlor.

    lol, the comment make me laugh, A FREAKIN TURTLE?!

    anywho... the main theme would be anime, but i'm desighning the outfits and making them myself. its basically a coffee-shop in the daytime and a nightclub at night, you couldsay that its a host/hostess bar at night lol, and in the daytime its a Gothic lolita cosplay shop, and yes there will be the treating customers as if you are their maid. its not really too japanese as i'm too lazy to actually be bothered to "play games" with the masters, the whole aim is to make the customer feel safe and at home.
    i dont know much about the night-time goings on..... i'm more of an early morning person. rather than a late night person. plus thats his territory, but does anyone have any idea's as to where to put it in uk, because IT WILL HAPPEN>.< now..... i just need to think about decoration costs >.< .... knowing me itll take 100000000000 yrs though >.< fufufufu... oh should it be kawaii lolita or Visualkei lolita?

    Basically, except instead of being paid to flirt the help is paid to call you master and behave like a submissive little servant girl.

    If I'd go to a vaguely creepy place like that though, I'd go for the mom-type. There the help is paid to treat you like their child, serve "home-cooked" meals and all that.

    Edit@Rep: Ew god no, the mom type one is deliberately nonsexual and meant to remind the customer of home.

    Will you be hiring highschool girls/boys who shouldn't really be working in the first place, because their school forbids it? It's sounding like a cheesy manga already.

    Personally, I don't think the idea would catch on unless you set up in some trendy place where the novelty would seem mildly interesting. Otherwise just stick with a normal cafe that occasionally does dress up once a month or something.

    I dont think it would work anywhere outside of Japan...maybe if your in a area with high population of japan culture fans.

    Food places are one of the hardest businesses to get going and keep afloat, its much harder for niche ones

    Why not make a tally chart or something similar and go to the busiest place in England to note peoples views on it. Ofcourse I speak of London. I doubt you will get a lot of peoples attention as most of them are stubborn and busy there, but you get many different people there that may help you. I suppose you could ask a couple of the Japanese tourists (one of the best parts of going) and they will probably like the idea. We do get millions of tourists and they may partake in your Cafè.

    I would recommend London because of all the tourists. I would certainly go in there if you recruit good-looking staff members, dressed like maids and what not. You may get a lot of Japanese consumers too, and then I would definitely go in!
    That which is; is the truth.
