Local Tourist (Throwback Thursday Edition): Kitty Brew Cat Cafe

Posted April 30, 2020 by shooting in Cincinnati / 28 Comments

April definitely went faster than March…for me at least. However, we’re still practicing social distancing and that makes being a Local Tourist a little tough. Therefore, I thought I’d share a local outing I went on earlier in the year that I never talked about! If you have your own post – from any point in time – please link up with myself and Dara below.

Local Tourist: Throwback Thursday Edition!

Earlier this year, my sister and I went to a movie night at Kitty Brew Cat Cafe! You pay around $15 (plus tax) and you get to hang out in the cat lounge with all the kitties and watch a movie. They’d had a few already, but the one we attended was showing Shrek. Included in the price was soda, popcorn, chips and candy. It’s not a bad deal at all! Plus, you can always ignore the movie and just hang out with the cats the whole time, if that’s your jam!  If you fall in love with a cat, you can always inquire about adoption!

We’d never been before, so it took us a bit to find the place. While we didn’t miss the movie – and even had time to check out all the cats before it started – we didn’t really have time to place a drink order at the actual cafe. Kitty Brew Cat Cafe is actually two “stores” if you will. One side is the cafe, and the other is the cat lounge where all the cats live. The two aren’t connected at all. You have to literally go outside and through the front doors to get inside either one (just in case you’re worried about cross-contamination between the two). At any rate, we will definitely have to visit the cafe portion when it opens up again.

It was a really fun evening though! They have a variety of chairs and even a couple mini couches to sit on. It was definitely cozy. The cats roam around – some more adventurous than others – throughout the evening/while the movie is playing. Because the lounge isn’t huge, they do limit how many tickets they sell per movie night so it didn’t feel overly crowded. There was a nice mix of ages there too – some families with younger kids, but there were also some people in their 20’s. It’s definitely a fun place to visit for any age – you just have to love cats! And yes, I definitely wanted to adopt so many of the cats – but I don’t think my cat, Charlie, would be happy with a companion. He seems like an only child for sure!

  1. This sounds awesome. I would LOVE to go to a place like that. Just the fact that it exists is so cool! 🙂 I’d want to adopt all the cats though probably haha.

  2. This sounds really fun! Yes, I’ve been to a cat café with my daughter. Sounds like a similar set up. The cats were in a space next door to the actual café. You could go visit them and all of them were available for adoption. The owners of the café live on a large acreage where they adopt cats then bring them to the lounge space for adopting out. It’s a really cool idea. p.s. I love the movie Shrek. The first one is definitely my favorite.

  3. I love cats, so this sounds delightful! Even if you don’t adopt a cat you get your cat therapy in, good for you and the cat! I’d probably take home a cat though, lol! 🙂

  4. Okay this is the CUTEST THING EVER. I would want to take ALL the cats home tbh. My cat is named Charlie too. She doesn’t live with me anymore because she was so scared of the kids that she refused to come out so she lives with my ex-husband and she’s much happier. I miss her. This is seriously such a wonderful idea! I wish we had something like that here, I’d definitely be game!

      Aw, I’m sorry you don’t have Charlie with you! You should see if there’s one nearby – they are getting more popular.

  5. I have read books, where they go to cat/dog cafes and they sound like the most magical places. That is wild, that you actually went to one. Love it!

  6. Aww I love this so much!! This quarantine situation has made me really miss having a pet–we keep talking about adopting a dog soon once I know more about when my job will go back to normal. I don’t think I could resist a cat either if I went there!

      You’re very welcome, and they are becoming more common – so there might be one near you!

  7. I’ve never heard of anything like this before. I love that you can watch a movie and hang out with the kittens at the same time, and what a wonderful way to promote their adoption. Love the pics!!!
