Enlisting robots in the kitchen or restaurants isn’t a new concept. In fact, there are robotic chefs slated to debut in 2018 for home use, and even robots that make pizza while en route for a delivery. Now, the self-proclaimed “first robotic bar in the world” has confirmed its new home at the Miracle Mile Shops on the Las Vegas Strip.
According to Eater, Robotic Innovations will take over 2,472 square feet of the former Napoleon menswear store. The store’s construction budget is estimated at $540,000 with an opening slated for the end of June.
Rino Armeni, founder and board chairman of the Las Vegas Business Academy, is linked to the project.
Fine details of the bar — such as the design, robot manufacturers, and the amount of interaction with human customers — have yet to be revealed.
Although Robotic Innovations will be the first of its kind on the Las Vegas Strip, there is another robotic bar (Makr Shakr’s Bionic Bar) permanently installed on Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas cruise liner. The robotic bar system has the ability to make 120 drinks per hour with 60 different spirits, according to the company website.
