Crazy Junkyard

Crazy Junkyard

Tree House Restaurant (New Zealand):

This unusual restaurant started life as an ad campaign for Yellow, a New Zealand company similar to the Yellow Pages. The idea was to build a restaurant in a tree using only resources listed in the company’s directories. Tracey Collins of Auckland made it her mission to build the restaurant-in-a-tree using Yellow.  The designer was careful to minimize the impact on the tree and the surrounding forest, he said in a release.

Pelican Bar (Jamaica South Coast):

The Pelican Bar is located on a sand bar roughly 3/4 of a mile off of Jamaica’s South Coast.  It is one of the most unique places in the world to witness a sunset.  The Pelican Bar specializes in Red Stripe beer and local rum.  We highly recommend a visit to this unusual property, even though it is not an official restaurant (food must be prearranged and brought out by boat).

Bed Restaurant (Miami):

BED is the most relaxing dining spot in the city. Huge mattresses with mounds of pillows let you relax with a hot date or a small party, after you place your shoes in a cubby and put on BED’s complimentary socks.The trance music and slow-motion videos projected on screens attempt to soothe you, as do creative drinks like the blackberry julep, a new, fresh-fruit take on the mint julep.

Military-Themed ‘Buns and Guns’ Restaurant (Lebanon):

At Buns & Guns in Beirut, Lebanon, everything is military themed – from the decor and names of the menu items to the helicopter sounds that play constantly in the background.

Hospital Themed Restaurant (Latvia):

A unique, weird restaurant has opened in Riga, Latvia named “Hospitalis“.It is a must-see place if you like gore things. The restaurant looks like a medicine cabinet, while you are treated as a patient and taken good care by the long-legged waitresses in nurses uniforms.The food is served in flasks and operating-room’s dishes and isn’t that cheap (7 and more lats per meal), but this is a bizarre experience that is worth breaking the bank. Besides, the place is owned by local doctors, but unfortunately, the president of Latvia, who is also a doctor, declined his appearance at the opening once he realized how weird this place actually is.

Death Themed Restaurant (Ukraine):

A group of Ukranian undertakers have constructed the first death-themed restaurant – built inside a 65ft-long coffin. Inside you’ll find funeral wreaths, black shrouded walls and human-sized coffins. Menu items include dishes with names like “Let’s meet in paradise”.

Modern Toilet Restaurant (Taiwan):

Taiwan has one of a chain of restaurants called Modern Toilet where you sit on a toilet and eat from a toilet shaped bowl. Modern Toilet is a restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan with a modern decor and a full-on toilet theme. All 100 seats in the crowded diner are made from toilet bowls, not chairs. Sink, faucets and gender-coded “WC” signs appear throughout the three-storey facility, one of 12 in an island-wide chain of eateries.

Undersea Restaurant (Maldives):

the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant still interesting to talk about. Known as the first-ever transparent undersea restaurant in the world, the restaurant sitting five meters below the sea level of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and encased in clear acrylic offering diners 270-degrees of panoramic underwater views.

Sky Restaurant (Belgium):

This strange restaurant combines the delights of dining with a thrill of well, a thrill ride. You’ll travel about 150 feet into the sky before you chow down on a gourmet meal prepared mid-air. Restaurant uses a mobile crane to lift its entire 22-seat open-air dining room over city streets all over Europe.

    Sorry to anyone who wants to go to the Tree House in New Zealand – it was built and opened for a one month run only. It was part of an ad campaign for NZ’s Yellow Pages. It closed a few weeks ago. Greetings from NZ though :)

    I recently saw a video about a prison themed restaurant in Japan that was as weird or weirder than any of these.

    Though I’d rather eat at any of these – except the death restaurant – than the prison restaurant.

    I can’t believe they left out the blind cow. I suppose that there wouldn’t be any good pictures. It’s a place where all the waitstaff are blind and you’re served in total darkness.
    Here’s an npr bit on it:

    so, say you need to go toilet in the toilet restaurant (i’m assuming the toilets everyone sits on arent actually functional) how do you ask where the toilets are??

    How about this Cave – I ate there about 11 years ago, was amazing.

  21. Revenue Robot said:

    wow i’d hate to be the server that stands in the middle of all those people… the balancing would have to be intense!

    The toilet one is gross. I would not eat at a place that reminds me where I will be within ours. Mid-air dinner is impractical. People are strapped in with a seat belt as they are eating. How is that comfortable?

  24. Zep said:

    I ate in a place in Naples when I was in the USN you had to take like a trolley car way up this very steep hill. it was in a cave of sorts. You actually had to walk through the kitchen to get to the dining area. That was a long time ago 80-82. Wonder if its still there.?

  25. that one gay kid said:

    Jun. 2, 2009

    yea i dont know if they are seatbelted or not but what i do know is that looks alot like the empire state building behind the fucking bed diner iN MIAMI…

    There’s also the O.Noir restaurant in Montreal.. you eat dinner in the dark like a blind person! And the waiters are blind people too!

    I once had a dream that a friend of mine wanted to open a Pink Floyd-themed restaurant, and I spent most of the dream convincing my friend that it was a really terrible idea. I’m glad to see that hasn’t come to pass, because it was pretty scary or lame.

    Wow, I’d love to eat at the undersea one!

    I must say, it would suck if you accidentally dropped your fork or your napkin (or your shoes!) on the last one, although that one looks like quite the experience!

    There’s a McDonald’s in western Kentucky where all the employees are part of the same inbred family. It’s weirder than all these! Side note to emily; it’s a good thing you convinced your friend in the dream NOT to open a Pink Floyd themed restaurant. Pink Floyd is a horrible band and all their fans are drug addicts!

    That probably is the Empire State Building in the Miami picture. I live in NY and went to a restaurant in Chelsea called BED a couple of years ago and you could see the ESB from the rooftop. Whoever posted the pic must have misidentified the location, as there is also a BED restaurant in Miami.

  42. Eric said:

    There is something about eating on a toilet that doesn’t sit well with me.

  43. tungk said:

    Jun. 8, 2009

    Ahhh, now I see why they named the place BED. “Why don’t we goto BED” “My Girfriend and I and five friends went to BED together”.

    Bed Restaurant is Arabic style restaurant. Its common in the Arab world to squat on the ground, pillows tucked under, and eat with fingers.One can find these restaurant aplenty in Saudi Arabia.

    I think I’ll stay home and just grill in my back yard. Even at 2AM – I’ll know what I’m eating and where it came from. Check out my t-shirts at the website!

    I really want to go to the Undersea Restaurant one day – I blew out my eardrums and can’t scuba, and snorkeling isn’t quite as cool as that would be

    these are cool, but any exhaustive list of the weirdest restaurants would include Texas Taco in Patterson, NY. the place is like an acid trip in a restaurant, I cant even try to explain it if you’re ever in the area seek it out. There will be a second if your not sure whether or not its forreal and you should open the door, but trust me….
