This New Orleans Cat Cafe is a Cat Club!
What could be better than a cat cafe? A cat club! Ever dreamed of having your own club house where all the cool cats could hang out? Come on down to the Crescent City Cat Club! This New Orleans cat cafe is not really a cafe, but a full-stop cat experience.
You’ll find your little piece of feline heaven in the vibrant Faubourg Marigny district, steps away from many restaurants and within walking distance to the French Quarter. You’re at the right place when you spot Zac the Greeter Cat perched in front of a bright-hued house.
Come See Da Cats in Da Club
The classic double shotgun house is thoughtfully renovated for the maximum comfort of cats and their people. Partnering with the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, the Crescent City Cat Club has up to twenty cats available to visit and even adopt. More cat club than cat cafe, the Crescent City Cat Club is a joyful celebration of cats and community. Owner Eshya Selig took inspiration from the murals at Cat Town in Oakland, California to commission local artist Zac Maras for a New Orleans themed murals.
If you ever find yourself on Jeopardy faced with the question, “Name the only cat cafe with their own Cat Mobile,” your winning answer is: Crescent City Cat Club! After falling in love with the Club’s new murals, Eshyah Selig immediately commissioned Zac Maras to trick out her Toyota Highlander -purchased specifically for the purpose- into a Cat Mobile. Meet Simone, the Crescent City Cat Club Cat Mobile. And yes, you’ll spot Simone cruising around town bringing good cheer and the joy of cats.
Laissez Bon Temps Roulez at the Cat Club
The good times are always rolling at Crescent City Cat Club. Here is the happy, relaxing venue you hope to find in the Big Easy. First, super friendly cats (and staff) will greet you in the colorful lounge, maybe with a zydeco soundtrack. Next, you can lounge away the hours in true local style in the catio-courtyard. The kitties love being outside, and especially enjoy watching the world go by through cat-level holes in the fence.
Probably no other cat cafe steps to the beat of its neighborhood more fully than Crescent City Cat Club. Where else can you join a Krewe of Crazy Cat Ladies (and Gentlemen)? Take to the streets and march behind a Cat Mobile named Simone? Here! Saints watch party? Jazz jam? The Cat Club! Or maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch a couple of cat loving musicians pop in to make a little music, with cats. Check out #JonandSuzie doing the Stray Cat Strut at the Club:
Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!
Fancy kittens? Visit Crescent City’s Kitten Room -a whole room just for fluffy little fur babies! There you’ll meet at least one kitten on any given day, and many more during kitten season. Like all the cats at The Club, the kittens are available for adoption. The Crescent City adoption experience is enjoyable and relaxing for the whole family -fur baby included.
Lagniappe: Stay in the Guest Cottage
The separate one bedroom cottage sleeps two and let’s you live like a local, with cats. Entry to the Cat Club is included with your stay, and you can even “check out” a cat or three to spend the night. Book directly through the Club or on VRBO. And you’ll sleep well knowing that all the proceeds of your stay support the cats!
So now you’ll score more Jeopardy points knowing that the Club is the only cat cafe where you can spend the night! Lagniappe -a little extra- in true Crescent City cat style.
What an amazing place! I am sure it’s full of people all the time. I would definitely spend some time here!
I have NEVER been to New Orleans!!! I cannot believe I haven’t since I am a total foodie. But perhaps in the near future I will be able to!
OMG I might need to make a pilgrimage here! I don’t know which is better, the kitten room or the fact that you can check out a cat to hang out with overnight! Sooo cute!
Oh my gosh, this looks amazing! I am a cat lover, but due to allergies we can only have one cat at a time. I love that they even have cat-level holes in the fence for them to look through.
That is too cute! I’ve never been to New Orleans but if I ever do get around to visiting that is definitely one of the places I plan on visiting!
Oh gosh I love love this so much. I think it’s a great way to see kittens! As someone who is allergic I can’t have one, but I love to visit them!
wow, what a concept! I think it should be mandatory to have at least one of those in every single city of the world.
This is the cutest idea ever! I love New Orleans and kitties! I will definitely come by next time I’m there.
What a fun place to visit. I have never been to New Orleans but I would stop here
This is too cute! How fun is it for both cats and cat lovers?! And that car is the best.
Omg!!! I’m a crazy cat lady so this cafe looks like the coolest place EVER!!! So want to go!!!
I’ve never seen a place like this. I know some cat lovers who would absolutely love this. Unfortunately, allergies to cats might keep me away. One cat I’m ok with but any more and it would be me and waterworks everywhere.
This looks like it would be such a fun place. This would be so awesome to bring your cats to!
