The El Jefe Cat Lounge is currently closed in observance of the Tuscon Covid-19 order. The kitties are all back at Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter & Sanctuary, where they and other fabulous felines are available or adoption. El Jefe looks forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe to reopen!
El Jefe Cat Lounge is Tuscon’s first and only cat cafe. In fact, with the extended closing of the Phoenix area’s La Gattara, El Jefe is currently the only cat cafe in Arizona. Located just a couple miles from the University of Arizona campus, El Jefe delivers Tuscon a top cat cafe adventure.
Let’s be clear: the coolest thing about El Jefe Cat Lounge is of course the cats. There are about twenty-five of the coolest cats you’ll find in the whole Southwest. But beyond cats, El Jefe is one of the coolest cat cafe spaces you’ll find.
A Space for Cats and People
Offering three enchanting floors of cats , El Jefe is a thoroughly delightful space for cats and people. The strip mall exterior gives little hint of the sleek, even elegant lounge inside . The fun and inspiring design sets the stage for a thoroughly genial visit.
Think button tufted sofas, sumptuous fabrics, and crystal chandeliers. We can’t know for certain how the cats feel about plush velvet upolstery, but we get paw-sitive vibes.
Every inch of El Jefe Cat Lounge is cleverly designed to delight humans and felines alike. The open-concept space with soaring picture windows gives a grand view of the neighboring mountains.
