Neko no Niwa, Singapore’s first cat cafe, is officially opening today. Located at Boat Quay, the cafe is named Neko no Niwa, which means ‘cat garden’ in Japanese.
For the uninitiated, a pet cafe is a theme cafe where you pay a time-based fee to watch and play with the residing pets while you have your drink and desserts.
When we were in Seoul earlier this year, we discovered many cats and dogs cafes, and it made us wonder why no one thought of opening a similar concept in Singapore, Now there is finally a place for cat lovers to gather. Neko no Niwa has 13 resident cats, and it is charging S$12/pax for the first hour, and S$5/pax for the subsequent 1/2 hour block. Now, we hope someone will open a dog cafe in Singapore next!

Is the $12 inclusive of food and drinks?
Is the food halal there?
@Kitty Lover They only serve desserts there. Not sure if it is halal.
@ Vernice No it is not inclusive. That is only the cover charge, you still have to pay for your drinks and desserts separately.
there’s already a dog cafe called WTF (we’re the furballs, or something). been around for quite a while.
There are already so many dog cafes around in Singapore! One is at rooftop of NEX shopping mall.
