Welcome to Neko HQ
The Cat Lounge at Neko HQ is a luxurious space to relax and enjoy the company of cats. No cages, just spaces for cats and kittens to be the most curious, cutest and engaging creatures that they are, where you can be a part of their world. Neko HQ is the first of its kind in Victoria where you can spend time getting your cat fix or meeting your purrfect match.
All cats in the Cat Lounge are available for adoption and there are no permanent residents, so every time you visit you will be meeting different cats. If you adopt one of our cats, we will discount the price of admission off the adoption fee, and all funds raised at Neko HQ benefit the work of Maneki Neko Cat Rescue.
We limit the number of guests in the Cat Lounge and manage this through a ticketing system. Reservations are highly recommended to guarantee your space in the Cat Lounge. We also host private special events, therefore walk-ins/last minute reservations are accepted only when space is available.
