Beats me. I got the info from a press release they issued. I understand its sort of a serving area for those waiting on line to register or something. Its really just a "Its being done in Vegas, so we are doing it here" but only for TWO robots, not intending to replace all bartenders. I assume the desk clerks will be expected to 86 repeat guzzlers.



Its two giant robots (really more like gigantic mechanical arms)

You pay and order your drinks similar to the new automatic order machines in mcdonalds

Its takes up most of the wall near the restaurant cafe

Felt like watching the transformers serve drinks imo

IPAD, and you have the chance to tip when paying by card when you order. There is a person who delivers the drink to you after completion.

Is the tip for the person delivering the drinks? Is this near the Hard Rock Cafe or is this set up on the casino floor? I have to check this thing out when I'm over there next weekend.....

As you check in, the cafe is behind you, the robo bar is to your right. Starbucks has been replaced with Dunkin Donuts, and a clothing store replaced with Pie Five, a individual size pizza joint which resembles a Subway in how you pick your toppings, crust, sauce, etc.

Going to be at the HR in 2 weeks, so I'll check out that "drink machine" and let you know......been mostly playing at the Scarlet Pearl in Biloxi, but need to get my tier status back up for the summer at the HR.....

I think that is a perfect example of how the Press Release about this largely novelty item functions. It generates some traffic and briefly alters existing traffic patterns as people show up to try out a novelty item but figure as long as they have trekked there out of curiosity they might as well stay and take a flyer in the casino.

I won't eat at any buffet in Vegas, or anywhere else for that matter. It always makes me think of the buffet that Chevy Chase goes to in Vegas Vactaion. People before you have handled the food with their fingers, dropped the tongs on the floor, sneezed, coughed, etc. Pass.

Has anyone ever gone to the GN in Biloxi?
