Top 5 Weirdest Restaurants Around The World

Save With Shareagift Towards… Something Different

Restaurants are popular around the world, not only for the food they serve, but also for the weird themes and ambience that diners experience. Check out these top 5 restaurants that are popular for how weird they are!

1. Cabbages and Condoms, Thailand

A restaurant that has attracted international attention, this condom-themed restaurant runs by the tagline – ‘Food guaranteed not to induce pregnancy.’ You can expect the staff to wear inflated condoms on their heads, and everyone is invited to take condoms while the after-dinner mints are served. It is definitely worth it to plan a visit to this restaurant.

2. Modern Toilet, Taiwan

Started by an ex-banker, this restaurant now has several branches across Asia. A bathroom-themed restaurant, food is served in toilet-shaped bowls. While dining, customers sit on acrylic toilets adorned with renaissance paintings. Taiwan does host other unusually themed restaurants, but Modern Toilet has been the most talked about restaurant.

2

3. Fortezza Medicea, Italy

Meals are served in one of Italy’s oldest prisons, where the inmates serve meals. With guards surveying the crowd, the old rule ‘Customer is King’ isn’t applicable here as Italy’s dangerous criminals are the staff who serve tables. Guests are seated on plain benches in this 500-year old prison.

3

4. Christon Café, Japan

This church-themed restaurant has menus shaped like coffins with a giant crucifix and stained glass windows to give it that Biblical vibe. The café serves Italian and French cuisine fused with Asian dishes. One of it’s most popular dishes includes the ‘humberger’, served exclusively for sinners.

4

5. Dinner in the Sky, Various locations

If you are wondering about what a bunch of people are doing on the crane, you now know the answer. Hosting a maximum of 22 people, extravagant meals right from sushi to steak dinner are served high up in the sky. Meals are served while the crane is suspended high up in the sky and diners are strapped into a seat.

Top 5 Most Expensive Hobbies To Have

Its not just ‘all work and no play’ for the rich and famous. Most celebs do pursue the things they love, however, unusual or expensive they may be. Take a look at these expensive hobbies and remain guilt-free if you have one too!

1. Art Collection

Celebrities, businessmen, entrepreneurs and every one with an eight-digit bank balance have voted art collection as the most expensive hobby to pursue, as you also need to enjoy the piece of artwork that you buy. The Triptych is the most expensive artwork to be sold for $142 million to an anonymous bidder. Don’t forget to take a look at Leonardo Di Caprio’s expensive art collection.

2. Collecting Vintage Cars

Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and Ralph Lauren are some of the exclusive members of this club who can afford the 1937 57S Bugatti which costs $4.4 million or the 1954 Mercedes Formula 1 race car which costs $29.6 million. If you are worried about fluctuating savings rates, some of these vintage cars might turn out to be a worthwhile investment!

2

3. High Stakes Poker

James Bond’s ‘Casino Royale’ is the perfect example of high stakes poker that requires million-dollar buy-ins and payouts. A hobby reserved for the rich, if you don’t have millions in the bank or a few expensive assets, this game isn’t for you. High stakes poker is probably one of the riskiest hobbies to pursue as you might end up losing everything you have.

3

4. Keeping Exotic Pets

Kristen Stewart and Mike Tyson are some of the popular celebs who prefer to own their private collection of exotic pets instead of having to go to the zoo every time they want to see a lion or a cheetah. The cost of caring for these pets can easily skyrocket to a few millions, excluding the cost of acquiring a license.

5. Flying

Aviation classes cost over $250,000 even in the most basic aviation schools. Celebrities like John Travolta and Tom Cruise pursue such hobbies to later purchase their very own private jets. Taking into account the cost of maintenance, cost of buying and fuelling a plane, some of these hobbies may be more expensive than they seem.

2. Man lets 1.1 million bees swarm over him

4. Juggling LIVE Chainsaws

Ian Stewart from Canada has juggled 3 live chainsaws for nearly a minute, with around 94 catches. Authorities ensured that this was performed according to the stated guidelines.

Chayne Hultgren of Australia pulled 411.65 kilograms (907 pounds) with his eye sockets in Milan, Italy. Chayne, also known as The Space Cowboy, has performed several other ridiculous stunts such as lying down on a bed of nails with 28 motorcycles ride over him. Hope he has his insurance covered!

Top 5 Unbelievable Pop-Ups In London

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Great Day Out In London

The competitions between new and up-and-coming businesses is now greater than ever. To differentiate themselves and find the market share that they need, companies need to think of innovative ways to appeal to the public. And pop-ups are just the way to do so. We look at 5 of the most out-there ideas

The Curious Canine Kitchen

dogfood-copy

Whilst most dogs still chomp on their terribly uncool Pedigree tin-canned crap, the cool dogs in town are at the Curious Canine Kitchen feasting on Seaweed, Kale and Reishi mushroom cream.

Dog

It may be debatable how much your lovely canine friend (or any human, even) actually enjoys this ‘superfood menu’ due to their reduced number of taste buds – but don’t let the ‘reasonable’ price tag put you off: £20 for three courses of paw-licking-goodness!

fewd

You’re probably thinking; where do I go for this once in a lifetime experience? Well, save your moustache wax for another occasion; they’ve been and gone! However, you can still donate to their great cause Amazon CARES

Pestaurant

Pestaurant-2

The well-known (to a small niche) pest control company, Rentokil, are more used to poisoning and disposing of masses of tiny critters than frying them up for mass consumption…

mealworm

But with the impending doom of the slow unraveling of the Earth as we know it; maybe we should give the gnarly little insects a try? And you can do! For tasty salt ‘n’ vinegar crickets and Mexican spiced mealworms, just head on to one of their pop-ups happening (bit far out) in Surrey and Edinburgh. It’s free too. You’ve got nothing to lose, apart from maybe your appetite…

Death Row Dinner

death_row_dinners__3040135b

Ever fancy experiencing your last meal on Earth? Well you can with this death row themed pop-up! The menu consists of dishes made up of past last requests and a cheery mugshot of inmate in question.

ower-645x430

This pop-up concept was launched just last year with images of deceased inmates with menus around their necks. If this sounds horrific to you, you’re not alone! It cause absolute uproar on Twitter; with responses branding the idea ‘sick’, ‘twisted’ and ‘disgusting’.

The organizers issued apologies and Death Row Dinner was no more.

Cuddle Cafe

Imagine a world where money isn’t the only currency, where you can pay for things with love and kindness. Well imagine no more! McVitie’s have launched a cafe where you pay for warm beverages and snacks by a quick cuddle. The cafe, designed by Dr Stuart Farrimond, is meant to encourage oxytocin – the ‘love hormone’, which kills stress levels and makes us feel more relaxed.

mcvities-cuddle-cafe-702x336

Unfortunately, the pop-up only opened for two days in February, so you’ll have to quench your thirst for a quick cuddle elsewhere.

London In The Sky

Alize Cornet, Xperia Hot Shot tennis player, swaps tips with Darius Knight, top British table tennis player, at Sony Ericsson's Tennis in the Sky on a specially constructed court suspended at 150ft over the Thames at Jubilee Gardens Waterloo London today while Pat Cash umpires.

A well-established business, Events In The Sky, have popped up all over the world. With events in Berlin to Paris to London, hanging a large dinner table over the city is their specialty. They have renowned and up and coming chefs cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the sky.

If you’re not terrified at the concept of being dangled by a crane whilst eating your dinner – then they’re open to bookings throughout the month!

4 – Via Film Trailer

Film fan Matt Still decided the best way to propose to his other half was on the big screen.

Top 5 World’s Weirdest Hotels

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Great Getaway

We all go to hotels to relax, put our feet up and relax in a calm and inviting environment. Or so that’s what most hotels aim to do… Today we look at the top 5 weirdest hotels: Where unoffensive decor and normal services are not on their list of priorities.

1. Hotel CasAnus

Casanus_intestine

As the name would suggest, yes, this little hotel is indeed a giant replica of the digestive system

STIAN_BUM HOTEL_IMAGE007 A HOTEL shaped like a COLON is getting rave reviews from punters…who are saying it is 'spicing up their sex life'. The CasAnus Hotel in Belgium offers couples a night inside a colon for just 120 Euros - around £100 - complete with a double bed, shower and central heating. Couples are flocking to the one-room hotel on an island near Antwerp to enjoy a night inside the colon, saying it's 'amazing'. The hotel was designed by Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout and is run by owners Geert and Carla Verbeke-Lens, who say the hotel is 'extremely popular' with couples. STIAN ALEXANDER 07528 679198

Located near Antwerp, Belgium, the large colon was, originally, a contemporary art piece by Joep Van Lieshout. It was turned into a hotel when Verbeke-Lens, the current owner, discovered that the vast space inside was suitable for nightly stays by travelers. For a very ‘modest’ fee of $150, you too can stay inside the only Anus hotel in the world.

2. Henna-na Hotel

robothotel4

It may sounds like the start of every dystopian film but, in Japan, a robot hotel has recently opened its doors (automatically, of course).

Henna-na, literally meaning ‘weird’, is fully automated. Meaning you’re greeted by humanoid robots and a dinosaur that speaks English, your luggage is transported by machines and even your bed is made by a robot. There isn’t even the need for keys; every door has facial recognition technology.

Creepy or amazing? You decide.

3. Propeller Island City Lodge

The name doesn’t give much away but this quirky little hotel in Berlin offers the unique experience of staying in different ‘concepts’.

Upside down room

For example, you can choose to spend the night in an ‘upside down room’, where all the furniture is glued to the ceiling and everything is topsy turvy.

Mirror room

If you felt that was disorientating enough, check out their Mirror Room.

Coffin room

Finally, if you’ve ever wondered what it felt like to be dead – book a night in the Coffin Room… The design of the room is meant to recreate the feeling of resting in peace…

4. The Godiva Chocolate Suite

ODD CHOCOLATE ROOM

If you have a ‘suite’ tooth, you’ll love this Valentine’s Day promotion at The Bryant Park Hotel, Manhattan. Every year, the hotel teams up with chocolatiers and artists to create a room made entirely of chocolate. Every wall is lined with chocolate and you can even see (and eat) a reproduction of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss”. Romantic! With a slight Hansel and Gretel vibe…

5. Tianzi Hotel

Last but not least is Guiness World Record’s “biggest image building”: Tianzi Hotel. Situated in Hebei, China; these three jolly dudes depict the Chinese gods of good fortune, prosperity and longevity. What’s more, you can book out the peach in Fortunes’s hand for a fruity stay!
