Cat cafe names are known for being cute, but with nearly 700 of them globally, it’s inevitable that a few will stand out as exceptionally clever.
Dare I say, they might even be considered cool?
Definitely one of the quirkiest names out there, this cat cafe in Beijing is a den of romance serving up friendly felines and classy cocktails in a dimly lit, cozy setting accented by flowers and old Hollywood posters.
This cat cafe offers a space theme that matches the name. With two locations, Sydney and Chiang Mai, this well-run business strikes a great balance between cat and cafe.
I thought the name was clever until I discovered it was a play on a song Fog on the Tyne. Mog is short for ‘moggy’ a common term for a cats without pedigree in the UK and the Tyne river runs close by, so the name is pretty genius when you think about it.
Cool name aside, the friendly folks and felines make this a can’t-miss spot whilst visiting Old Blighty.
Lonely Planet describes Helsinki as ‘quirky adventure,’ and its cat cafe embodies that description to a ‘T’. The clever combination of the city name plus the Finnish word for cat, its also a play on the English word ‘hellcat’ which conjures up images of everything from spitfire females to outlaw bikers to muscle cars.
What’s not to love?
One of my favorite cat cafes in not just South Korea, but the world, part of 4rest’s appeal lies in its ingenious name, as the shop’s residents are all drop-dead-gorgeous Norwegian Forest Cats.
Throw in stunning wooden interiors and outstanding coffee drinks, and you have the perfect destination when needing a break from exploring the crazy-cool streets of Seoul.
Yes, the name is funny and clearly doesn’t require explanation as to why it stands out.
However, Pee Pees is serious when it comes to offering a quality experience. With their cute rescue cats, genial humans, cheerful atmosphere and excellent foodservice, a visit is encouraged when in Berlin!
Moggy is a slang term used in the UK to describe a cat without pedigree and when combined with maison, the French word for classy house, you have a perfect example of British tongue-in-cheek humor.
Add in the fact that all of their cats have French names such as Jacques, Amelie, Philippe, Marcel and my favorite, Guillaume, and you know that these super-cool Scots have a good time in store for you.
Romeow Cat Bistrot: Rome, Italy
I haven’t visited this Italian cat cafe yet, but I would be remiss not to mention it as the name is admittedly, very cool.
I’m looking forward to visiting soon!
Not just the author of beloved classics, Ernest Hemingway was also a cat lover and famously kept polydactyl (more than five toes) companions at his home in Key West, Florida. Hemingway, also nicknamed Papa, and his tropical home are also the design inspiration behind the cat room at Papa’s, making it one of the coolest themed cafes I’ve visited during my travels on ‘cats and coffee’ circuit.
An artful ‘call-to-action’ for prospective adopters plus a link to the man most closely associated with the city, I can’t help but hum like Elvis when I see this cafe’s name.
I realize the name isn’t funny in Japanese (simply put, Temari House), but the English version is. Once you visit this unique cat cafe, designed like the set of The Hobbit, it’s certainly not one you will every forget.
Music City = Mewsic Kitty. Cute AND cool.
I haven’t visited yet, but I love the ingenuity of combining the Spanish name for cat with the yummy Italian dessert (vanilla gelato topped with hot espresso).
Considering St. Louis’ significant German heritage, this name is perfectly placed, which is very cool.
