MixoBot: Malaysia's first robot mixologist shakes up a cocktail storm at Petaling Jaya's LAVO

April 19, 2021

Meet the MixoBot, a bartender who doesn't talk but does make a mean Margarita. 

Malaysia's first robot mixologist is shaking up a storm of cocktails at Petaling Jaya's LAVO resto-lounge, blending artificial intelligence with authentic flair and flavour.

If you're a cocktail enthusiast, check out LAVO to see cutting-edge technology take over the bar, with mechanical arms that can precisely whip up a cool potion within three minutes. 

If you're a bar owner, the MixoBot is a striking installation to lease for your venue, bringing stylish reliability to swiftly bolster your margins.

It's fun to watch MixoBot make a cocktail starting with an empty glass. 

MixoBot isn't a person but it isn't without personality. Its sleek white arms dance and weave across the many bottles suspended from the top, taking only what's needed to shake it like a rock star. It’s a show that's visible throughout LAVO, injecting a unique dynamic to the scene.

MixoBot's movements might seem like an attractive novelty, but this isn't purely a gimmick - this state-of-the-art innovation is fully capable and consistent in determining the accurate proportions for a perfectly crafted cocktail.

Focus Dynamics, which operates LAVO and has introduced the MixoBot in Malaysia, points out that without room for human error, bar owners face fewer risks and losses from drinks returned to the bar by dissatisfied customers. If the customer loves the drink once, they'll always love it.

The final test is in the tasting. We're happy to report that MixoBot's creations at LAVO taste well-balanced, exactly what you'd expect from a respected bartender.

Bar owners and customers will appreciate the convenience offered by MixoBot.

It's easy to programme the MixoBot to create a wide variety of customised cocktails, including the Lychionic (RM35; gin with lemon juice, lychee and Schweppes tonic water), Irishman (RM38; whiskey with lemon juice, soda water and ginger) and Strawberry Margarita (RM36; tequila with triple sec, lime juice and Monin strawberry fruit mix). 

The cocktails are priced reasonably, without any MixoBot surcharge.

To see the MixoBot and its flexible arms in action, head to LAVO. You can walk in or book a table through the GemSpot mobile app.

Ordering at LAVO is fuss-free through a tablet that showcases the complete cocktail menu, with all ingredients accounted for.

One human element remains intact at LAVO's bar, with the garnishing finished by LAVO's own crew.
