The Tilted Kilt's first Midlands location opens Monday, Jan. 13, in the Harbison area.
A national chain, Tilted Kilt has 90 restaurants throughout the U.S. and Canada.
So, what's on offer? Well, short plaid skirts. And 47 TVs. And traditional pub food — fish & chips, shepherd’s pie — plus American bar food like burgers and the Tilted Buffalo Chicken Flatbread. There'll be an impressive 44 beers on tap, too.
But let's talk a little more about those plaid skirts.
Tilted Knit fits firmly in the breastaurant tradition pioneered by Hooters, in that the servers' sexy attire is part of the brand.
The restaurant went out of its way to explain its hiring and staffing practices in a recent press release to Midlands media:
"At Tilted Kilt, the entire experience follows the theme of a theatrical production. Servers are called 'cast members,' wearing mini-kilts made of the Tilted Kilt's own registered tartan plaid, a starched camp shirt, sporran, stockings and flashings. When a new restaurant is hiring, the 'directors' (store managers) hold a 'casting call' where servers audition to be part of the 'show.' They are trained to be the 'star' and the act starts the minute a guests walks through the door. For female guest enjoyment, Tilted Kilt also recruits 'cast members' as male bartenders who wear the Tilted Kilt uniform. All female cast members are trained to interact with women who enter the establishment – before looking at the men."
(Presumably non-heterosexuals are also welcome to interact with Tilted Kilt cast members.)
Anyway, if you'd like to check out these stockings and sporrans for yourself, Tilted Kilt opens Monday. It is at 380 Columbiana Drive.
