I know this is only mildly related to hotels, but I’ll take advantage of the opportunity, because this story is just too good. In March the Hilton Osaka opened My Place Cafe & Bar, which seems to be their all day cafe. It’s not unusual for hotel bars to want to establish themselves as venues for non-hotel guests to visit, and different hotels have different ways of accomplishing that.
The Hilton Osaka has an especially unique way, though. Some places have ladies’ night, though the Hilton Osaka is taking it to the next level. Japan Today reports that on Thursdays between 6PM and 11:30PM they’re offering a “High Heels Ladies’ Night Discount.” As the name suggests, the bar is offering discounts to women wearing heels, and the bigger the heels, the bigger the discount. Here’s how the discount works:
- Heels of at least 5cm score you a 10% discount
- Heels of 7-9cm score you a 15% discount
- Heels of 9-11cm score you a 20% discount
- Heels of 11-13cm score you a 25% discount
- Heels of 13-15cm score you a 30% discount
- Heels of 15cm+ score you a 40% discount
So if you want that 40% discount you’ve gotta wear heels of at least six inches. I can’t really decide what my favorite part of this story is. What could possibly go wrong with a bunch of ladies drinking excessively to maximize their discount while being in heels that they can’t walk in? And perhaps most interestingly, whose job will it be to measure the heels, to determine the discount?
I sort of almost want to visit the place just to check out the logistics of this…
