Tokyo on Cuba

File under: ,

This scaffolding and plastic structure recently appeared in Cuba Mall. It's not, as some have suggested, a shelter to protect evidence for the police investigation into the mysterious mayor-bashing incident. It's a temporary party structure housing Neon Tokyo, the marathon five-night third birthday celebration for Good Luck bar.

Last night's opening was so popular with the hospo set that at least one local bar and restaurant closed down for the evening (and judging by the state of the staff late last night, they may be closed for a while longer). Some inventive and outrageous costumes added to Cuba Street's already eclectic atmosphere, though I'm not sure how a chicken suit (the guy on the left) fits in with the Neon Tokyo theme.
