Café Rouge (14+)
Now some of you may be wondering what this is all about. Allow us to explain! Dansou Cafés are similar to Maid Cafés, only there is one major difference. In Japanese “Dansou” translates to: Disgusing ones self as a man. So, in a nut shell: Females dress up as gentlemen and take on a completely different persona for the purpose of entertaining and serving the guests.
You’ll find very different, well thought-out and developed male characters that have in-depth relationships with one another. You also get to sit back and interact with these guys and watch the drama and shonen-ai unfold, all while munching on a yummy snack that these delightful bishonen serve to you. You can also expect some level of flirting from your hosts since they believe every guest should feel like a princess (or prince) while in attendance at Café Rouge.
When you attend Café Rouge, you have to take on a completely different mindset to fully enjoy the experience. Try to see the hosts as separate entities from their female actors and basically just play along! Call the hosts “he’s”, see them as males and get to know the characters. Everyone has to play a part in keeping up the illusion because that’s the best part of the Café. Talk to the characters and get to know them as they will be trying their best to get to know you too!
