Opened in December 2014, Meow Parlour is the first permanent NYC cat cafe. Inspired by the cat cafes of Japan and the original in Taipai, the unique cafe that puts you in the company of cats is sure to be the first of many in New York City.

Located in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, Meow Parlour was launched by the two woman team behind Macaron Parlour and is run in partnership with feline rescue group KittyKind. Each of the cats hanging about at this NYC cat cafe are available for adoption.

The first cat cafe in North America opened its doors at the beginning of 2014 in Montreal, while they have been present in Europe for some time, with even an owl variety for charity popping up in London.
