Cat cafes have been all of the rage in downtown Manhattan as of late... first, there was the Lower East Side, then SoHo... and now this.
The long-awaited day has finally arrived for Brooklyn cat-lovers. That's right, the borough's first permanent cat cafe is set to open on May 6th in Brooklyn Heights.
The cafe is being set up by the Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition and will be located at 149 Atlantic Avenue between Clinton and Henry Streets.
You might be tempted to hang out here all day everyday, but the cafe is only open during select times. You can head on over on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 3-7pm and on weekends from 11am-7pm.
The cost is only $5 per person for a 30 minute session, and kids under the age of 3 get in for free.
And if you're worried about growing attached to any of the adorable creatures, have no fear. The best part is that all of the cats are available for adoption and in need of loving homes. Can you say win-win?
