Koneko Cat Cafe is a Japanese-style cat cafe in the Lower East Side that mixes an artisanal Japanese coffee-house with the accompaniment of fat, fluffy kittens.
Our friends at Bedford + Bowery recently went on down to Koneko to see what it’s all about.
The Lower East Side now has two–count em, two–of them, with the recent opening of Koneko. […] The room where the cats are kept is connected to the café, but protected by a glass wall. There’s also another room downstairs and an outdoor patio, or “catio,” where the cats can roam and take cat naps. It costs $15 to spend an hour in the “cattery” with the cats and their toys. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are welcomed.
