HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our space is divided! Half Cat Lounge, half Coffeehouse! You can stop in for a latte and bring your laptop to work, or visit the cats and play. Choose one side, or both!
Good energy, local coffee, craft beer, and adoptable cats (don't bring your own!) right in the heart of three beautiful historic districts in North Carolina: NoDa, Charlotte, Downtown Concord and (coming 2024) Downtown Salisbury! Twelve adoptable cats roam the cat lounge - ready to play! Our cafe is separate and offers coffee, wine, craft beer, smoothies, baked goods and more! Must be 7+ during regular business hours. See reservations tab for all info.

ARE RESERVATIONS NECESSARY?
We don't require reservations, but they are highly encouraged - especially on holidays and weekends! The only way to guarantee entry is with a reservation. Hour reservations are made online in advance of your arrival by clicking on our reservations tab. 30 min visits are walk-in only and subject to availability.
Monday - Thursday: $12/person 60 min reserved online. $8/person 30 min walk-in visitor (subject to availability).
Friday - Sunday: $14/person reserved. $10/person 30 min walk-in visitor (subject to availability).
Reservations guarantee your spot but we also love walk-in guests and dedicate a few spots per hour to accommodate those visiting without a reservation. Walk in spots are 30 minute visits with the cats instead of an hour- and you may encounter a wait time. Not to worry though, you can hang in our cafe or walk around town and wander back for your experience.
Kids must be 7 years old or older to reserve a time during regular business hours. Younger? Keep reading...
CAN MY KIDS COME?
To ensure the safety of our cats and your children, the age requirement is 7+ during regular business hours. Book a "Kitty Time" reservation (Saturday mornings at 10:00am - reservations required, $10 per person), or "Book the entire Room" is an option for your little ones to enter as well! When booking the room, up to 4 kids under 7 may enter within your group. Pricing / total number of participants varies depending on day and location...
NoDa weekdays, $95 and weekends, $200 (1-12 guests)
Concord weekdays, $75 and weekends, $175 (1-10 guests)
All details are under the "reservation" tab for both locations
We do not allow little guests under 7 years old during regular business hours, so please choose from one of the options above.
I HAVE A GROUPON...
To reserve time in the cat lounge with your Groupon, please call the store you wish to reserve and our team can help you from there!
1. Please have your ideal date / time ready, with a secondary option if we do not have the availability.
2. Please be sure everyone in your party is over 7 years old.
3. Your Groupon code will be redeemed over the phone, so please have your 'redemption code' handy.
4. Groupons are used in full at the time of redemption - if your Groupon is for 6 people, but only 4 people are coming for a visit, you are not able to "save" those additional spots for another time.
5. Groupons are not interchangeable: if you purchased a Tues-Fri or Sat/Sun Groupon, they must be used on those days

CAN I RESERVE THE CAT ROOM?
You have the option to "rent the cat lounge" at either of our locations; this is done under "reservations" and by ticking the "book entire room" option. The cafe side remains open, but only those you have invited into the cat lounge will have access, no outside guests will enter the cat area during your hour. Gifts / wrappings / balloons are not allowed inside with the cats due to safety concerns, but we can help keep them safe with staff members until your departure. We also do not allow outside food or drinks, however our selections of pastries, smoothies, hot chocolates, etc are available if you choose! There are also cute options in town (ice cream, etc) that are walk-able to extend your celebration AND support other small businesses as well!
WHEN SHOULD I VISIT?
That depends on the vibe you're looking for! The cats are typically active early on, then sleep on and off the rest of the day, then perk up again early evening. We don't expect them to "perform" all day, so some visits may be different than others depending on which cats, and how many guests, we have in the space that day. However, with 12 cats roaming the lounge, there are always a few playing around! If you are able to visit on a week day, you will get a quieter experience with a better "human to cat" ratio on average than on the weekends.
The maximum amount of humans at any given time is 12 (plus employees).
ARE YOU WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSBILE?
Our Downtown Concord and (soon to be) Salisbury locations are ground level and easily accessible to all!
Our NoDa, Charlotte location is on the second floor of a historic building. There is stairwell access only which has 22 steps. If anyone in your party would have a hard time climbing the stairwell, we suggest visiting our Concord location instead!
