About the Venue

Koneko means “kitten” in Japanese, and we take our inspiration from cat cafés in Japan, where the concept has flourished. 

Located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Koneko has an artisanal Japanese- influenced menu, house-made desserts, plus beer, wine, and sake – and a big, furry family of adoptable cats. Our kitties roam freely around three cat-centric spaces: The sunlit Upper Cattery, the warm and cozy Lower Cattery, and a first-of-its-kind outdoor Catio.

Koneko’s mission is to find loving homes for cats pulled from the city’s “at-risk” list by our partner, Anjellicle Cats Rescue. The at-risk list is the last stand for New York City’s cats – they are scheduled to be euthanized shortly thereafter. At this point Anjellicle activates its network of foster homes and pulls as many cats as possible from the list. Some of these lucky kitties end up at Koneko, where they’re able to be adopted by our guests. We are humbled to be a part of this extraordinary rescue network.
