Cat vs Cafe (50/50)
World Romance: Review of World's End Girlfriend
A Cat Bar?
Why should kitty time be restricted to just coffee and tea? Bring on the cocktails!
World's End Girlfriend Cat Cafe does indeed have a full bar, but with their uber-girlie decor, soft indie rock tunes and pretty drinks, they not only get my vote for 'Most Romantic Cat Cafe' but also the award for 'Most Original Name for a Cat Cafe'.
We visited on a random Thursday afternoon, but almost turned around as the lane leading to WEG didn't seem very commercial. In the midst of the hutong's houses, we caught a glimpse of the sign. It didn't look open, so we knocked and a young woman opened the door and invited us to sit down. We were the only patrons in the place and we debated having proper drinks as they have a full bar, but ultimately decided on a coconut flat white (60 yuan/$8.70) for Perry and a Honey Lemon Iced Black Tea (50 yuan/$7.50) for me. Both were beautifully presented and tasted even better.
But wait! I haven't even gotten the cats.
We encountered four felines on our visit, and while the number might seem low, the small space combined with the big personalities of the cats means four is just about right. These kitties rank right up there amongst the friendliest we have encountered in dozens of cat cafe visits around the world. One sweet fur baby wanted lap time while two others perched nearby and the fourth watched from the bar.
While we played, our bartender worked on floral arrangements for the room, adding to the lovely atmosphere.
A great option for a night out in Beijing, bring your significant other to this den of romance and hopefully the cats will look away when you sneak a kiss.
