Unusual restaurant on the border of Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

Alice from the fairy tales of Lewis Carroll has been traveling the Land of Contemporary Art for several years: she appears in alternative illustrations, goes over to the dark side, presents a theater of costumes named after herself. And recently, one of the most famous literary heroines has got her own restaurant in Tokyo. The fairy tale was created by the employees of Fantastic Design Works. It turned out really on the verge of fantasy.

Old tomes set in a fabulous mood

When visitors enter the building of an unusual restaurant, they immediately stumble upon huge old tomes with worn out inscriptions, as if enlarged with the heroine of Lewis Carroll at the very beginning of the story of a journey to Wonderland.

Alice got her own unusual restaurant

The floor in the fabulous restaurant is lined with black and white checkerboard tiles (hello to the Looking Glass!). In the same cashier there is a mirrored wall, through which, however, it is unlikely that you will be able to pass, unless you fall asleep right during the Mad Tea Party.

Hedges, trees, checkerboard tiles

The authors of the restaurant interior - Eiichi Maruyama and Katsunori Suzuki - took as the basis for the design the Disney cartoon of 1951, on which several generations of children have grown up. “We wanted to surprise and delight the guests by creating a world full of wonders,” says Eiichi Maruyama, “but without unnecessary bells and whistles.”

On the walls of the institution - portraits of characters

The main hall of the unusual restaurant is divided into parts by a hedge. Each zone dates back to one of the episodes in the stories of Lewis Carroll. As a result, we have more than 200 square meters of chess-card space. Fairy tale, and more!

Unusual restaurant in Tokyo: 200 sq. m fairy tales!

We hope that in such a wonderful place the service will not disappoint. Otherwise, I remember the principle of treating in the Looking Glass: if you want to drink, eat a crouton.
