The Evangelion x Shin Kamen Rider bar will open in Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku on March 10, 2023. It will remain open until May 28, 2023. The bar will be an izakaya (Japanese-style pub), and it is the result of a collaboration between the latest releases in both franchises, which are both directed by Hideaki Anno. Original goods and food menus will be available for a limited time. Reservations are now available from the official website. [Thanks, Dengeki Hobby!]
The Evangelion menu includes menus inspired by characters such as Shinji Ikari, Ryoji Kaji, and Kaworu Nagisa. The items offered reference famous lines and scenes in the series. Some of the items return from other menus offered in 2018 and 2019.
The Shin Kamen Rider items are named after Hayato Ichimonji, the second Kamen Rider, and the evil organization “Shocker.” Both make an appearance in the new movie. You can check out some of the menus in further detail in the gallery below.
People can get one of five special coasters based on Evangelion and Shin Kamen Rider characters when ordering one of the collaboration drinks offered. Repeat visits to the bar will grant stamps. Every second visit, customers will receive original stickers as a special present.
