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.

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

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

See full list of pros and cons.

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