America’s first cat wine bar to open in Denver

13th June, 2016 by Lucy Shaw

A group of cat lovers in Denver have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the opening of America’s first wine bar populated by rescue cats.

Cat bar

The bar is the brainchild of the Denver Cat Company, which launched 18 months ago with the aim of finding loving homes for rescue cats.

The Denver Cat Bar, combining felines and wine, will be free to enter where cat lovers can play with the rescues while enjoying a glass of their favourite wine.

The lounge bar is partly aimed at cat lovers who are unable to have one at home for reasons such as renting rather than owning the property.

The bar will have a separate area to enjoy food and drink, but guests are allowed to take their wine into the cat lounge if they wish.

“We cannot emphasise enough how much we need you to make this happen. There are no wealthy investors here, just our community – you – rooting for us,” the campaign’s Kickstarter page reads.

The campaign, which has 25 days left to run, has currently attracted 104 backers, who have pledged $6,156 between them.

In order for the Denver Cat Bar to become a reality, the project needs to raise $60,000. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, you can do so here.

A location for the bar has yet to be secured. All of the cats at the bar will be up for adoption if one takes your fancy over a glass of Purrnot Noir.

    I believe Purrington’s in Portland is already doing this, so they are the first.

    What a bold and interesting project.
    If each of your 2million “likes” donated $1/£1/€1, their financial worries would be over.
    I hope they find the backers they need to put this marvellous project on a sure footing. I wish them all the best.

    Wow, this is something new. Wondering how are they even insuring this.
