Welcome To The Unicorn Cafe: A Rainbow Fantasy In The Middle Of Bangkok
The Unicorn Cafe in Bangkok, Thailand, is what you didn't even know your Instagram was missing. The pictures of the Unicorn Cafe say it all — it's a sugary-sweet fantasy land, covered in rainbows and dripping in kawaii. With bright murals, crystal chandeliers, and of course, unicorns everywhere, the cafe capitalizes off of the recent pop culture obsession with these fantastic beasts.
And what would a unicorn-themed cafe be without unicorn food? Their menu proffers a creative batch of dishes done up in proper unicorn style, with tons of rainbow colors, sweet drinks, and burgers with horns made of French fries.
This is your personal guide inside the Unicorn Cafe, including everything unicorn lovers need to convince them to book a flight to Thailand right this minute. But be warned — this little restaurant can cause sensory overload faster than you can say "unicorn onesie."
The Decor Is A Manic Lisa Frank-Esque Dream
The Unicorn Cafe has succeeded in making people feel as though they have just walked through a door into a fantasy land. The walls and ceiling are completely covered with cartoon unicorn murals in bright colors, and the room is filled with plush furniture in pearly pastels. A large statue of a unicorn greets you at the door, and the finishing touches are the gorgeous crystal chandeliers — straight out of a romantic daydream. All of the bright, eye-popping elements come together to create the feeling that guests have stepped into a cloud of sugar and dreams — "a pastel explosion fashioned by Lisa Frank on her most manic day," according to Cosmopolitan.
The Cafe Follows A Tradition Of Asian Cosplay Cafes, With A Thai Twist
Asia has a passion for unique and interesting cafes. In Japan, cosplay cafes are elaborately decorated restaurants with a specific theme: think maids, vampires, or Alice in Wonderland. They create a unique experience for the guest, transporting them to a fantasy world. Thailand has its own out-of-the-ordinary eateries; Bangkok is home to not just the Unicorn Cafe, but also a Siberian Husky cafe, cat cafes, and a fox cafe.
Dress Like A Unicorn, Eat Like A Unicorn
Just in case the decorations, food, and drinks weren't enough unicorn power, guests can take the experience one step further. The cafe provides unicorn onesies, which can be worn during your meal. They make the experience more interactive, and provide even more fodder for those Instagram accounts. This is cosplay possibly at its most fantastic.
