Mars 2112, Theme restaurant, NYC

What could be one place that could show the present ‘future city of the planet’, New York City, a future that no one could ever imagine? If you are guessing some mystical tarot card reader with her crystal ball then I must say you are not even close. I am talking about the world famous tourist targeted restaurant called Mars 2112, NY. A theme based restaurant located in the Times Square district of the city, shows the future with pride over an area of 33,000 sq ft, making itself the largest themed restaurant in the world (when opened).




As the name suggests, the restaurant is a rare fusion of scrumptious cooking, continual anticipation and oodles of fantasies. The Dining Area of the place is a crystal crater which is 3 storeys high! As one sits and eats, in no time he feels like he is served on the planet mars, with real looking Mars subterranean landscape, with waiters dressed in Sci-fi costumes, and food and drinks named with space themed names. Mars 2112 makes sure that one reaches a new world altogether. As you dine, you are surrounded by millions of stars above with red lighted rocks all around making the place look surreal. Before you reach even close to the climax of fantasy, you meet Empress Glorianna, the ruler of Mars 2112 who shows you a Martian arcade, swaying everyone in the never-ending fun of this colorful place. Mars 2112 is definitely more of an experience than a restaurant. No wonder why, this place was rated as one of the major tourist attraction in New York City.


Located on a sunken courtyard in front of the Paramount Plaza building at Broadway and 51st Street, Mars 2112 is located very close to the East Village Apartment, a perfect place for a complete holiday in the heart of New York City.
