Bartender vs. Robot

Ask the majority of bartenders and they will tell you “to hell with Robots.” Ask a robot and – well…a robot will say whatever we tell it to say, but will robots be the downfall to the bar culture in America?

Robot bartenders are still a fairly new concept. LA Times reports “Tipsy Robot, which opened Friday, claims to be the world’s first land-based bar to deploy robotic bartenders. If the technology sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because it has been used on Royal Caribbean cruise ships.”

Although there seems to be a lot of praise for robot bartenders, Esquire lists the pros and cons of bionic bartenders.

With a robot you won’t ever have to hear the words “coriander jasmine blossom infused…” uttered by an actual human being.
Forget digital networks, robotic bartenders are how Skynet takes over the world. You heard it here first.

You won’t succumb to drunken 2 a.m. desperation and hit on a robot.

As for us, we’ll stick with humans for now too! Cheers!
