Alexey Khodorkovsky, a restaurant owner in Moscow, has decided to only hire sets of twins in a bid to attract new customers.
The Twin Stars diner employs identically-dressed siblings to serve its hungry clients with food and drink – taking inspiration from an old Soviet-era movie.
The 24-hour bar is run, from the management all the way to the cooks, only by identical twins.
Alexey Khodorkovsky says that he aimed to create a fairy tale atmosphere and to provide an exclusive bar for these fraternal couples.
He said: “I had some friends that are twins and I thought that there are no places for twins, where twins could be the main feature of the business. And I wanted to do something <<circus>>, something more of entertainment plus food.”
Alexey Khodorkovsky assures that it was not an easy job to find qualified twins: “Of course, it wasn’t easy to bring twins as employees, we had to relocate some people from Ukraine, for example. And of course twins that are experienced bar tenders, waiters and so on, we couldn’t find them, so we had to first find twins and then teach them to work as bar tenders and waiters. But it’s coming out alright.”
Hollywood stars pictures displayed with their fake twin decorate the walls of the restaurant, which every Sunday hosts a twin party day.
