Royal/T is a whimsical fusion of cafe, concept shop, and art exhibition space. It’s also the first cosplay cafe (short for costume-play) in Los Angeles. These theme cafes originated in Japan and are now popular all around the world. If you’ve never been there, you have to check it out this saturday, June 27th at our Poketo Pop-Up Shop event. We were so stoked when they invited us to have a pop-up shop there. Thanks Royal/T!
Royal/T is influenced by Meido Kissas or maid cafes, which are under the umbrella of cosplay cafes. All the waitresses are in french maid outfits. This lends to quite an interesting dining experience!
Philanthropist and art collector, Susan Hancock is the owner of Royal/T. Her amazing private collection of pieces are generously exhibited in the space for free. They’re not just any old pieces either. We’re talking about awesome stuff from Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, KAWS, and so many other great artists.
Remember to come out this Saturday for our opening day event celebration! First 50 people will receive a free gift bag. See you all there!
