The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

— Inspired by The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams

Ladies and gentlemen, robots and aliens – Milliways, popularly known as The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, invites you to take part in a fine dining experience unlike any other. Enjoy professional service, luxurious environs, and high-quality food against the backdrop of the universe exploding.

Upon your arrival, our state-of-the-art storage pods ensure that your spaceship is safely stowed for your entire stay. Illumined by numerous glittering chandeliers, Miliways’ plush interior invites you to sit back, relax, and let the cares of the millennium wash away.

New each evening and prepared using the finest ingredients outer space has to offer, the Miliways menu offers an exciting array of dishes for patrons to discover and enjoy. Our extensive bar boasts nearly every drink known to humankind and otherwise, including the infamous Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. A complex concoction of Ol’ Janx Spirit, Water from the Seas of Santraginus V, Arcturan Mega-Gin, Fallian Marsh Gas, the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger, Zamphour, and an olive, this intergalactic drink is not for the faint of heart. Please note: Miliways is NOT in any way responsible for any or all injuries the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster may cause to its consumers, up to and including death.

Suddenly, the lights dim. An expectant hush settles over the room. All eyes turn to the expansive glass windows with a clear view of the galaxy outside. And then – BANG! The universe explodes in a dizzying kaleidoscope of colors and light. Have no fear – Miliways is protected by the most technologically advanced force-field generators. Furthermore, thanks to Time Turbines, each new patron may enjoy the same awe-inspiring experience over and over again. This staggering view of the world’s end is unique to Milliways and shouldn’t be missed. What better complement to a fine meal than a bird’s eye view of civilization turning into dust?

Please join us at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe for a meal that is truly out of this world!
