The cat cafe is a pop-up promotional cafe that features cats and beverages in the Bowery section of Manhattan. Cat cafe concept is not new - these already exist in Japan and some European countries. New York cafe was the first institution of its kind in America, because the local sanitary regulations prohibit such close "communication" with the animals in catering. However, this time the organizers were able to circumvent the ban, this year also plans to open two similar cafes in San Francisco. Visitors make an hourly fee for the stay in the cafe and in return get to choose any foods and drinks. The only downside, cafe opened just a few days before April 27. You can get here from 10 am to 7 pm, at the same time in the cafe may be about 65 people, so potential customers will likely have to stand in line.
