Doctor Doctor, Can’t You See I’m Eatin’ Eatin’

Today’s Reuters featured Taipei restaurant D.S. Music Restaurant, “a hospital-themed eatery, and watch showgirls dance on weekend nights or chat up “nurses” whose rabbit-ears complement their starched white uniforms.”

The restaurant-bar features “bed” tables, drip-to-order drinkable “medicine,” crutches hung from the walls, and a wheelchair parked in the lobby.

Ou Chia-hao, brother of the restaurant’s owner, said:

“‘In Taipei, pressure on people is high, and they want a place near home where they can feel relaxed.’

Ou’s brother opened D.S. last year with T$5 million ($150,760) to express his enthusiasm for the care he got at a hospital when he was treated for a liver disorder.”

Hmm. I can’t think of a more relaxing setting than a hospital, can you? I’ve often found that when a Xanax and a My Bloody Valentine record are out of grasp, an episode of E.R. will knock those nerves right out. And I certainly can’t think of a better way to show one’s gratitude for proper medical care than a HOSPITAL-THEMED RESTAURANT REPLETE WITH SHOWGIRLS AND CRUTCHES HANGING FROM THE WALLS.

On another note:

“Years ago, a Taipei bistro tried a Holocaust theme, but eventually removed items and photos reminiscent of Nazi Germany brutality under pressure from Jewish groups.”

Err… Perhaps the “Heil Ham Sammy” and “Concentration Camp Cocktail” didn’t fare so well.
