Stay and Play: Review of Cat Playground
The first time we visited, the doors were locked, which is strange as Google shows Cat Playground to open every day.
We returned to this busy Myeongdong location (via Metro Euljiro 1/Line 2 or Myeong-dong/Line 4) two days later and discovered the reason- a major remodeling project.
Cat Playground is investing in their future with a fresh, colorful and quirky atmosphere. With 30+ adorable cats, ranging from Norwegian Forest to American Shorthair to Persian and even a Sphinx, it's one fun cafe to hang out.
It was on the crowded side the day we visited, but after being welcomed by the friendly staff, we managed to snag a table where we sipped our iced teas while several cats came to investigate our presence. Most were incredibly social and playful, but a few ran to the protection of the off-limits section under construction to escape the cuddle seekers.
There are several cat cafes to choose from in this neighborhood, but I find Cat Playground stands out for offering a clean, odor-free atmosphere and loads of lovely kitties.
