World’s First Land-Based Robotic Bar is Now Open inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood

Tipsy Robot, the galaxy’s first land-based robotic bar, opened its doors to the public on June 30 at 10 a.m., inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

A one-of-a-kind destination attraction that merges craftsmanship and high-tech innovation, Tipsy Robot features two cocktail-shaking robots that interact with customers in a social, digital environment. Customers can order one of Tipsy Robot’s 18 signature cocktails — or create a custom cocktail — through one of the bar’s 33 tablets.

The robots mirror the actions of human bartenders. They mix, shake, pour, slice fruit and even dance to the latest Top 40 and EDM hits. Each beverage takes 60-90 seconds (or less) from order to completion.

“Tipsy Robot is a unique entertainment destination that showcases the latest in robotic technology,” said Tipsy Robot Owner Rino Armeni. “It is the epitome of craftsmanship. The wave of the future has arrived.”

To commemorate the grand opening, Tipsy Robot held a special media/VIP event on Thursday, June 29, where the robots were officially unveiled for the first time. (Picured at left: former City of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and his showgirls.)

The robots do not yet have names, because Tipsy Robot wants YOU to choose. Stay tuned for the Robot Naming Contest.

Robot bartenders won’t be running the entire Tipsy Robot operation. There is a human bar staff and “Galactic Ambassadors,” who assist customers with the drink-ordering process. The bar will also feature a live social media wall and photo booth for customers to share their out-of-this-world experience with friends and family.

Tipsy Robot will be open 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 10 a.m. to midnight Friday-Saturday. And, no, the robot bartenders do not accept tips (only toasts)!
