Why you will love it?

In 1998, the first « cat bar » opens its doors in Taipei, Taiwan. The concept spreads in Japan and finally arrived in Paris in late 2013. Located in the heart of the Marais district, the cats (and the people) gather in this place especially designed for them. Enjoy! Parisianist.

Our Insiders' Article


The idea of creating a cat bar blossomed in the head of two friends and cat lovers. The café would be an area where cats and humans would live in perfect harmony, and through their concept, they have tried to establish the truth in the words of French actor Francis Blanche: “cats are absolute honesty. Human beings tend to hide their feelings, but cats simply don’t.” In this off the beaten track café, the spotlight is most definitely on the cats, the real starts of the show.

Food and Beverages

Who said that being unusual meant serving bad food? At Le Café des Chats (« the Cat Café ») you cannot leave before having tasted the delicious cheesecakes made by famous pastry chef Rachel Moelle. One of the highlights is the lemon/raspberry/chocolate cheesecake, which comes at a price of €7. We recommend ordering the Hansel & Gretel tea or the Le Tatin Gourmand tea (€5 each), which will enhance the flavours of that popular cheesecake.


In this cozy venue, you are the main source of wellbeing for the cats. 12 of those beloved furry creatures walk all over the place, and all of them have their own preferences and behavior.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Oréa, one of the 9 female cats, loves to lie down on cashmere sweaters. Who would have known that cats have luxury tastes?

Margaux, the manager of the café, claims that regular customers already have bonds with the cats. And when the piano is played, it sets a very intimate ambiance which is perfect to let go of all the day to day stress. And should you fall in love with one of the cats, it is possible to start an adoption process. 


Le Café des Chats attracts a lot of Parisianist and visitor, and this is the reason why it is preferable to reserve. But the new café in Bastille will be more spontaneous and will not require any reservation. Children are more than welcome to come, but should be closely looked after by their parents.


A hidden litter behind a trompe l’oeil style door, comfortable sofas and furnished alcoves, everything here is designed to make you feel right at home. The cellar is even designed as a library. In this intimate decor, you will be able to serve the tea to your friends and have a great time while petting the cats. That makes us wonder who out of you or the cat will be purring in comfort and delight.


The main axis of the café is the relationship between mankind and animals. It is very important not to both the tranquility of the cats and reservations can only be made for less than 5 people. A bigger crowd would mean more noise, which is not what Café des Chats is looking for. It is therefore an ideal place for a couple, but make sure no one has cat allergies!
