Logbar is a unique bar in Tokyo where each customer receives an iPad when they walk in the door to interact with the bartenders/servers and to receive additional services. Services include a Communication System where customers can communicate with each other inside the bar by clicking "Like!" & "Cheers!" buttons or sending comments; an Auto Recommendation System that analyzes each customer's drink preferences and sends recommendations; and, an Original Cocktail Making System allowing customers to build their own drinks that will be published for all to see. If other customers order your original cocktail, you will receive 50 cents as a reward! Our goal is not just opening a bar, but customizing and expanding our iPad system to other social places, such as stores, restaurants, cafés, etc. The possibilities are infinite! http://logbar.jp
