Hello Kitty Opens a Pretty Pink Cafe and Cocktail Lounge in Irvine

The Hello Kitty Grand Cafe and multi-use Bow Room are at the Irvine Spectrum Center

A Hello Kitty tea room, cafe, and parlor for grown ups is headed to the Irvine Spectrum Center on September 14. There’s two spaces with three separate themes. One side is the casual Hello Kitty Grand Cafe, and opposite is a The Bow Room at Hello Kitty Grand Cafe that offers high tea during daylight hours, and converts to a cocktail lounge after 5 p.m.

The Hello Kitty Grand Cafe is a relaxed 12 seat space. And as expected, the world’s most recognized cartoon cat is everywhere. The cafe offers a cup of made-to-order donuts, Sanrio character mini cakes, along with Sanrio merchandise for days.

Wednesdays through Sundays during daylight hours, maneuver towards the bow-shaped knocker to access the Bow Room at Hello Kitty Grand Cafe. Reservations are required for afternoon tea service, which runs at $55 per person, which comes with pots of tea, mini tea sandwiches, mini cupcakes and cakes, and scones with honey, strawberry jam, whipped butter, and Hello Kitty-shaped sugars.

At night, the Bow Room transforms into a 21-and-over cocktail bar. This is also reservations only, with Hello Kitty-inspired drinks like the Matcha Matcha with Japanese whiskey, yogurt, matcha, and yuzu, a Dear Daniel with mezcal, pineapple, lime, spirulina, and salted coconut whip, or choose an Old Fashioned with a Hello Kitty ice cube. It’ll serve wines by the glass or bottle, including the Hello Kitty sparking rosè, Hello Kitty pinot grigio, and Hello Kitty prosecco.
