Las Vegas Getting Official One Piece Café

One Piece is getting a new, official One Piece Café, but it’s not located in Japan. For the first time, it’ll be in America! That’s right — starting on May 11, if you go to 5600 Spring Mountain Rd Ste A in Las Vegas, there will be a themed café for the most successful manga series in history!

The café is brought to us by restaurateur Andy Nguyen of Greatness LLC — he’s the same guy behind the Naruto themed menu at Silverlake Ramen — and Toei Animation.

Items on the menu include Zoro’s Onigiri, Sanji’s Seafood Fried Rice, Tajio’s Beef Curry, Mighty Meats Pirate Platter, stretchy mochi cookies, Chopper’s hat cake, and the Gum Gum Devil Fruit mousse bomb. Themed drinks to help you wash down the food include The All Blue mocktail, Franky’s Coke-a-Cola Ice Cream Float, and dragon fruit strawberry punch.

Of course there will also be specifically themed merchandise, such as various clothing items, keychains, mugs, plush, figurines, car stickers, and your own Luffy straw hat.

The One Piece Café will be open 11 AM to 11 PM every single day of the week. You can take a look at what all it has going on at its official website.

VIZ Media publishes the original One Piece manga by Eiichiro Oda, and gave this description for the first volume:

As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer “Red-Haired” Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure…one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…
