Located in Culver City, Royal/T is a playful blending of café, concept shop, and art exhibition space. The 10,000-square-foot space reflects the interior realm of fantasy that strongly influences the artist’s included in Owner Susan Hancock’s art collection. Royal/T’s café is inspired by the meido kissa (maid café) phenomena of Akihabara, Tokyo’s electronic district. Re-contextualizing the underground culture of Japan that celebrates “cosplay” (costume play), waitresses dress in maid uniforms with a Lolita-esque touch, while serving an amalgam of French and Japanese cuisine with local California style. The art space showcases curated exhibitions with a focus on Japanese contemporary art; and an inventive concept store emulates the collection’s sophistication, a seamless merging of Japanese pop culture and high-end design. Royal/T is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. The Royal/T café is open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily. The concept store and space are open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily. Walk-ins are welcome. For additional information, guests can call Royal/T at 310.559.6300 and visit www.royal-t.org. Royal/T is also on Facebook and Twitter.
