A robot bartender capable of serving up to 100 drinks per hour is now in operation at Cavalli Club in the UAE.
Named Toni, the Makr Shakr robotic bar system has been exclusively designed in Italy for the Dubai nightspot and has been launched as part of Cavalli Club’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
Using two robotic arms, Toni can create drinks from pre-selected recipes including those from international bartenders or those customised by the bar patrons themselves.
Customers need to pay for their drinks at the bar where they will receive a voucher, input the drink they want through the available iPads, confirm the ticket number, and wait for the robot to create it.
It’s the first of its kind in the region, say Makr Shakr, with other bars in Las Vegas, London, Milan, Prague, and more, also featuring the new tech.
