A Purr-fect Day in New York CityTo celebrate one of the world’s most recognized musicals, visitors can follow a feline inspired travel guide to New York City.
Start the cat-spired New York holiday with a Counter Culture coffee and a cat shaped macaron at New York City’s first cat café, Meow Parlour. Visitors can stay as long 5 hours and for those who can’t paws petting or bear to part, the adoptable kitty cats can come along back to countless pet friendly hotels, like the 1 Hotel Central Park, The Quinn Hotel and the Ludlow Hotel.
For those who don’t plan to depart the city with a new pet, the Algonquin Hotel with its resident cat, Matilda is a fantastic option. Guests can specially book a Matilda package which includes meeting the infamous cat, plus a welcome package. The hotel also holds their famous annual Cat Fashion show with proceeds going to the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, how chic indeed.
Next on the agenda, attending a Broadway matinee performance of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new revival of the mega hit CATS to create magical, meow-sical memories. X-Factor star Leona Lewis will take on the momentous role of Grizabella and two time Tony award winner Andy Blankenbuehler, who recently won for his choreography of hip hop hit Hamilton, will update the original choreography by Gillian Lynne. Pounce on this pedigree CATS performance at the Neil Simon Theatre.
At day’s end, visitors should be sure to pounce in for a game of shuffleboard or billiards in the West Village’s old school establishment Fat Cat, as a live jazz or string quartet serenades the siamese lovers of the world.
