Order a hot brew and then take a snooze on a reclining $9000 bed.
Think that coffee and sleep don't really go hand-in-hand? Think again. While we're all accustomed to gulping down the former when we haven't had enough of the latter, a new Tokyo popup is combining the two for anyone eager for a restful slumber with their hot cuppa.
Inspired by World Sleep Day on March 17, and taking over the Nescafe Harajuku until March 26, the bed-filled cafe doesn't just offer customers any old mattress. No, not at all. Those keen for a kip will bunker down on electronic reclining beds that sell for as much as $9,000. Each sleeping area also features adjustable lighting, and comes with a Sony Walkman filled with relaxing tunes.
It'll be the fanciest snooze you've ever had; however anyone thinking about grabbing a fresh brew and some shut-eye will have to adhere to a few rules. Nap time comes in two-hour blocks, and is only available to folks who purchase a food item from the menu. Once you've ordered something to eat, you'll receive a cup of decaf to help you drift off and then a regular caffeinated coffee when you wake up. Of all of the quirky cafe trends Japan can't get enough of — cats, maids, owls, goats, mayonnaise, hedgehogs, Super Mario Bros, Pikachu, the list goes on — this is one worth dreaming about.
