There’s a new cafe in Japan for geek women—and only women, according to Kotaku’s Brian Ashcroft. Ataraxia explicitly disallows “regular people and men.”
While there are tons of cafes all over Japan that cater to different interests (maid cafes are probably the most widely known), Ataraxia is the first to cater expressly to geek women and no one else. The establishment has a manga library, a work space where guests can pursue other creative interests, sewing machines and mannequins for use in cosplay, and of course, cute food, coffee, and alcohol.
You have to be over 18 to become a member, and only members can visit Ataraxia.
Ataraxia seems like a cozy, safe place to have fun without worrying about unwanted attention or judgment.
