My friends in Tune in Tokyo are having their final event at Royal/T tomorrow night, Friday, June 15th. Unfortunately the incredibly unique venue is closing down at the end of this summer, though they’ll be wrapping the whole thing up with a “Greatest Hits Party” shebang that involves a number of their very favorite creative partners over the years on Saturday, June 30th. Here is a cute little set of images that I put together of a few of the adorable Tune in Tokyo regulars as a promotional series, and there is plenty more about the club and more pics from the years throughout WTTD here.

About the Tune in Tokyo night:

“Tune in Tokyo presents OTSUKARE-SAMA, ROYAL/T!, our Grand Finale Event at the Akihabara-inspired Maid Cafe, Shop and Artspace on Friday, June 15th! As Royal/T prepares to close its doors later this summer, we want to invite all our friends back for one last big party, celebrating the amazing maid cafe that’s been a centerpiece of the Japanese fashion community and J-Pop scene over the last five years.

“Otsukare-sama” means “job well done” in Japanese, and we want to show our appreciation to Royal/T for its many years of memorable events, and the lasting impression its made on art and fashion in Los Angeles.

We’ll be welcoming vendors Chubby Bunny, Rockin’ Android Games, MugiBunny, Holley Tea Time, Rockeresque Beauty Company, The Many Arms of Misha, and more!

We will also have a Soju Bar in the club room, serving $5 J-Pop + K-Pop themed cocktails all night!

Tune in Tokyo DJs Greg Hignight, Tora, Del and Ally will keep the dance floor moving with a non-stop video mix of the best in J-Pop and K-Pop, featuring special guest dancers Mai and Eva!

Royal/T’s maid cafe will be open until 10:30 PM, serving High Tea and tasty Asian-Fusion cuisine!

Admission is $10, all ages admitted. The event runs from 8 PM – 12 AM.

This is your last chance to join the party at Royal/T, LA’s one-and-only Akihabara-style Maid Cafe! Tune in Tokyo would like to invite all of our friends to take part is this memorable tribute on Friday, June 15th! All Japanese fashion styles are encouraged! Together, let’s say “OTSUKARE-SAMA, ROYAL/T!” in style!”
