Maid Cafe

Saturday, Nov. 8 & Sunday, Nov. 9 from noon to 4 p.m.

Maid Cafe at PMX Pacific Media Expo is partnering with Royal/T to bring one of Japan’s more unique cultural exports to Los Angeles. Maid cafes are the latest fad in Japan where the café staff dresses as elegant maids when serving their customers. They originated in Akihabara and have spread as a staple of underground culture to countries like Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.

Pacific Media Expo will be co-hosting a Maid Café on Saturday and Sunday, November 8th and 9th at the LAX Hilton. Event attendees will be able to choose between being served by either the Royal/T maids. The café will be open from Noon to 4PM each day.
