this link is filed under history section, but i thought that it is better in the general section as it refers to the present day.

IN india. The local government should be responsible.

No accounting for taste I guess.
There is something deeply black humoured, verging on ironic, about the whole idea.

That's pretty odd, I mean a Hitler Bar?

What kind of food and drinks is served at the bar?

I think it's a neat idea. You should embrace history rather then making it taboo. And just incase the point was missed, I'm definitely not a nazi sympathizer.
Nameless
I probably wouldn't there unless recommended, but only because it's such an obvious marketing gimmick. (I also agree with the bar owner quoted as comparing Hitler to other (in)famous conquerors.)
dude_xyx
Just a Marketing gimmick. I don't think it as a big deal. But I guess its just how the world is people forget the past. This wouldn't had happened in 50's or 60's. Now there aren't many who has seen all world war 2 horrors by their own eyes.

I don't really care, it their bar after all. Besides the article is only looking at the bad sides, if noone is reminding us of what happenend it world war two there a big chance it will happen again Mad

Maybe I should open up a Donner Party themed restaurant. Specializing in ribs...

I would never name my restaurant something like that, and I would more than likely never enter one named like that.

I know that something like that in the US wouldn't go over to well.
I doubt that these places will get much attention once they have been open awhile except for the tourists that drive by and see them.

Now that's funny! Laughing

Some look like a good photoshop. Hitler Bar? How about Stalin bar? Himmler Bar? Marketing, pathetic.

I wonder how big the ovens are in a Hitler restaurant...
Vladalf
Never thought about a Hitler bar before.
Nothing offending for me, it's just an imaginative name.

Sadly, I don't think any of the food there will be Kosher.

OK, I will stop now, lest someone takes my humor the wrong way.

Nothing but ordinary stuff... the name and so-called 'theme' is just another marketing spin to suck tourists into Twisted Evil

Wait, seriously? This is serious? Jesus Christ. This has got to be the worst idea anyone's ever had...

Second only to "Hitler themed neighborhoods" in Poland...

I have now a name for my restaurant. Thanks for what you have said. Now I have my own named restaurant. I am going to open it this year.

Basically what many others have said. Beer, sausages... traditional German food. (Which is pretty delicious, by the way. Very Happy ) Or maybe it's typical Asian food, only with a bizarre Hitler theme.

I can't have been the only to laugh at this article though, right?
LostOverThere
Well, they got us talking about it. So already they've been noticed more than if they had a regular name.

Cheesy idea? Perhaps. Bad marketing? Never.

I was just thinking, history aside, those rich colours of black and white, and the art of the swastika are very appealing for decoration. Then the German type Gemuetlichkeit and ambience with drafts of beer and sausages, that would work for a Restaurant.

I remember when I was in Sharm El Sheikh there was a Russian restaurant also dressed up in colours with the whole Communist theme and authentic food, but modern drink. I thought that was a really great restaurant:

That seems like such a horrible theme for a bar. It definitely would not go over well in the west. I don't know if I'd be comfortable going into one of these bars.
coolclay
Who knows maybe they are mainly Japanese? Japan was after all a part of the original Axis powers. I don't really see it as offensive, maybe distasteful, but isn't that the goal of many bars! The more people make a big deal out of distasteful things the more those that started it win!

I know people who have dressed up as the SS for Halloween, distasteful, yes, but the whole reason they did it was to attract attention! And the more that is given the more they win!

Wow. Maybe they're doing it only to get attention.
I like dark humor, but I don't see the appeal here.

That got my attention but certainly won't get my business.
