We don't REQUIRE reservations, but they are highly encouraged... especially on weekends! It is the only way to guarantee your spot!
Kids ages 7+ are allowed in the cat lounge any time with adult supervision. Under 7? Little ones may come during our "Kitty Time" hours only, which are twice per month on Saturday morning. This is due to our insurance policy. Reservations are required since this is a special event before hours. We can not accept walk-ins.
Yes please! Your waiver is good for one calendar year, so if you do it once... you're good until January 1st of the new year. Each person in your party must complete a waiver, so please copy and paste the URL and send it along! Thank you for doing this in advance, it saves time at check-in and we don't want you to miss any time in the cat lounge!

Charlotte's cat cafe... right in the middle of NoDa! We have lots of cats to hang with (don't bring your own, we have it covered!) while sipping on a latte, craft beer or glass of wine!
Our cafe and "cat lounge" are separate! Our lounge is home to 12 adoptable cats with lots of cozy seating for our guests. The fee to enter the cat lounge is $12/hour or $8/half hour (must be 7+ to enter). Our cafe space is designated for check-ins, to grab a beverage, hang with friends or work/study... there is no fee to enjoy your time on the cafe side. Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins are accepted if there is space available in the cat lounge.
Pay-to-Park on Yadkin Avenue, which is behind our building. Street parking: 35th Street or surrounding side streets. You can also totally skip driving and hop on the light rail! The stop is one block from Mac Tabby at the 36th Street Station.
That depends on your vibe! The kitties are typically active early on, then sleep on and off the rest of the day, then perk up again late afternoon. We don't expect them to "perform" all day, so some visits may be different than others. Visit often! However, with 12 cats in our lounge, there are always a few playing around!
We work with a local rescue called Catering to Cats and Dogs. All of our cats are up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and combo tested! Best part is, they are ALL ADOPTABLE!
When you fall madly in love with a Mac Tabby cat and just can't imagine leaving for home without him... here is the best part... Mac Tabby cats are available for adoption! We are working exclusively with our partner, Catering to Cats and Dogs, to get these beautiful kitties to their forever homes. C2CND provides medical necessities and ensures ALL cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, combo tested and up to date on vaccines before they become a Mac Tabby kitty. Anyone looking to adopt will be encouraged to fill out the adoption application (linked under "Cat Roster + Adoption Info" on the menu) There is a ton of great info listed there! Check it out! We do not do "same day" adoptions from Mac Tabby, but you'll hear from a coordinator about your application in a few short days... and our kitties are worth the wait!
Crazy-amazing, right?! We know!
By law, we are not able to take in cats ourselves. We work with a local rescue group, Catering to Cats and Dogs, exclusively. Feel free to email our rescue to see if they can help! If they are full, they will be able to provide additional information that may help!
We are located on the second floor and sadly, we do not have wheel chair accessibility. Our building was constructed in 1927 and was not intended at that time for what it is used for today. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
We have cafe items such as coffees, espresso drinks, wine, beer and ciders. We also have small pastry items and cookies. Our full menu is listed in the menu drop down... But don't fret, NoDa is FULL of awesome places to grab a bite... all walk-able! A walk around NoDa is an experience in itself... plan a day out of your cat cafe visit, and hit up some local food establishments and take advantage of Instagram worthy art walls and more!
I am sure we would love your cat too, but please don't bring it! By law, we cannot allow him in... and then he would be sad, and we don't want to see your cat sad.
We are in the middle of NoDa, across the street from Cabo Fish Taco and Sabor. Our entrance to go upstairs is nestled between Rubys Gifts and Custom Jewelry. The door is always open! You will also see our street sign on the sidewalk.
