Murakami @ Bar Zingaro
Perhaps the most famous Japanese artist overseas (well, maybe the second, as Kasuma takes this role with her Infinity Mirror installments), Takashi Murakami fans can get excited about this cafe. The whole concept is a cafe where Murakami's Kaikai and Kiki characters, as well as some other rotating figures, can be viewed. The food and drink are both just average, especially for the price. But, the lattes have the familiar flower motif and the burgers have it burned onto the buns. So, a lot of care is taken into making everything look beautiful and presentable. Plus, there's no one drink per person requirement or anything like that. You can just hang out. The seating is varied. There are couches as well as tables, and it can get crowded at times so you may have to share. But, if you're lucky enough to snag a whole section for yourself, be prepared for strangers coming up to you and asking to take pictures with the pillows or stuffed animals in your area! Overall, it's a very fun experience and definitely worth checking out, even if you aren't an art fan.
