The Dancing Cat(TM) invites you to meet and mingle with adorable cats that roam free in our comfortable and charming living room-like lounge.

Want a cat fix? Perhaps you rent and your landlord doesn't permit pets, or your roommate is allergic.

Thinking about adopting? This is the place to spend quality time with a prospective pet...a short-term investment in long-term compatibility.

Looking for a cool place to hang out? The Dancing Cat is the purrfect place in the San Francisco Bay Area to meet friends, read, study, or simply decompress.

Need to relax? Petting a cat has a positive calming effect and has been proven to lower stress.

Bring your own food and beverage, or purchase a sweet snack baked with love by local bakers. Cat toys, catnip and WiFi are on the house!
