Boca Raton's Rex Baron is a Doomsday-Themed Restaurant
Post-apocalyptic restaurant Rex Baron opens in South Florida.
If you survive the apocalypse, the end times don’t actually seem so bad—at least that’s what the founders of Rex Baron, a new post-apocalyptic restaurant in Boca Raton, Florida, would have you believe. “This is not about zombies,” explains co-owner Michael Norris. “This [experience] takes place once the apocalypse has happened and the world is going forward.” Rex Baron is committed to its theme: mannequin characters sport doomsday-chic outfits, while the axes on the wall add a certain catastrophic cachet. “Survivors,” as patrons are called, cook steak on “lava rocks” or sip on cocktails served in Army surplus IV bags while playing interactive virtual-reality games in the lounge.
