Located near Ikebukuro Station in Tokyo, Muscle Girls is Japan’s only fitness-themed bar. It originally opened as a women’s gym but has since broken into the bar industry and gone viral. Muscle Girls even started a YouTube channel dedicated to entertaining viewers and spreading their love for fitness.

The bar is vibrantly decorated with bright colours, flashing lights, and gym equipment. Despite a slightly cramped venue, Muscle Girls makes up for it with their enthusiastic staff, who are young women who love gymming.

If you were to ask, what is Muscle Girls? The staff will answer that Muscle Girls is a place for girls who love fitness and want to achieve their ideal figure.

Every staff name ends with “-muscle” and they even work in the word into the way they speak to the customers. Instead of saying “arigatou gozaimasu” to say thanks, the staff say “arigato gozai-muscle”. A delightful and very on-brand pun.

Their most popular drinks are alcohols combined with juices such as Muscle White-wine & Orange-juice or Muscle Cassis & Grapefruit-juice, because these drinks come with a performance. These muscle girls will squeeze these fruits dry with their bare hands right in front of you, so be prepared to get some juice sprayed on you as they crush the fruit!

For 20 muscle dollars, you can get a piggyback squat or even a group photo with all the muscle girls. The more adventurous customers can even get them to slap or kick you. Female customers can get a muscle hug and muscle sandwich that has 2 muscle girls squeezing the customer between them, which costs 10 muscle dollars and 20 muscle dollars respectively.

Each staff member has different quirks and personalities and you can get to know them during your visit. One muscle girl once walked from Shinjuku to Hakone as exercise – that’s a whopping distance of  82.7km.

The muscle girls love compliments and also accept tips, which will go to their gym memberships and protein shakes.
