LAS VEGAS – Tipsy Robot, the galaxy’s first land-based robotic bar, will open its doors to the public today, June 30, 2017, 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.

The robots do not yet have names. Planet Hollywood will soon be announcing details about a robot-naming contest.

“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.”

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.
