Rejoice, New Yorkers: A Maid Cafe is opening soon in NYC


The Big Apple is getting their first maid cafe!

Congratulations, people of the Big Apple; Horizon Enterprise Group, Inc. is going to have a Grand Opening of New York's very first Maid Cafe! And from the looks of it, the people that are bringing this treasure to NYC are excited to share their take on the concept of Maid Cafes. 

To be honest, I'm quite happy for them, since there's something special about seeing new businesses open up. Before I forget, their Grand Opening will be on August 18th at 150 Centre Street in the downtown area of New York, which happens to be on a Sunday. As for the time, their debut will be from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm, so you might want to make sure that your alarm clock is set correctly.

Not to sound like a downer again, but I'm a little sad that I will have to miss out on this wonderful opening. Instead of letting the tears get to me, I wish Maid Cafe NY the best of luck with their business. If anything, I'll make sure to add Maid Cafe NY to the list of place to visit when I get the chance to travel to New York City.  

For more information about Maid Cafe NY and the Grand Opening, you can check out the press release below! To those who live in New York, do any of you have plans to check out the cafe?

What is a Maid Café?

Maid cafés are restaurants serving traditional Japanese food and desserts, with a staff of primarily young, cute waitresses and entertainers. In these cafés, waitresses dressed in maid costumes. The first Maid café was established in Tokyo, Japan in 2001 but maid cafés are becoming increasingly popular. They have since expanded overseas. Maid cafés were originally designed primarily to cater to the fantasies of male “otaku,” obsessive fans of anime, manga and video games. However today the maid café phenomenon also attracts couples, women tourists.
