New York City is Getting its First Cat Cafe

Following the frenzy of cat lovers that lined up to visit North America's first cat cafe, a pop-up event hosted in New York City last April, the city will finally become a permanent home to this unique trend that's already become popular in Europe and Asia.

Meow Parlor will combine a cat room, where visitors can play with adoptable cats, and a patisserie around the corner, where guests can enjoy "catified" baked goods and beverages. Macaron Parlour's Christina Ha and Emilie Legrand are the cat ladies behind the cat club, which will open in New York City on December 15.

According to Meow Parlor's website, visitors pay $4 per half hour to play with the cats and can stay for up to five hours.

Meow Parlor is also hosting a Kickstarter campaign offering access to the cafe before it is open to the public to help them fine-tune the visitor experience, including the chance to host a private kitty party for 20 guests if the pledge is $250 or more.
