We all know of the iconic Hello Kitty. Since her inception in 1974, this cute character seems to show up everywhere, with Hello Kitty merchandise such as toasters, shirts and even water dispensers being sold! The world can’t seem to get enough of this adorable feline! One of the latest additions to the Hello Kitty empire is these made-for-Instagram Hello Kitty Cafés. These cafés are made for those who love all things pink and Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty Cafés have been popping up all over California recently, with locations in San Diego, Rancho Cucamonga and San Jose. Hello Kitty now welcomes herself in Orange County, with one of these cafés being opened in Irvine, California.
Southern California is already home to many innovative, quirky and unique restaurants. A new addition to the line-up is the Hello Kitty Grand Café in the Irvine Spectrum Center. It opened on Friday, September 14, 2018. This café is made for the Hello Kitty lover that’s in all of us. This café’s menu features food such as sugar cookies and macarons, along with new food items such as hot donuts and Sanrio-character mini cakes.
This café features two spaces for customers. There is a café which is open to the public and a reservation-only private room, designated for cocktail parties and afternoon tea events. During the day, this reservation-only room, titled the Bow Room, offers an afternoon tea service from Wednesdays to Sundays. The Bow Room’s walls are adorned with pink, along with a large, fluorescent Hello Kitty background. The Sanrio website details how guests can pick from an assortment of fruits, scones, tea sandwiches and various cakes. At night, The Bow Room will transform into a cocktail bar for guests aged 21 and over. The guests can help themselves to a curated wine list, along with Hello Kitty themed cocktails and drinks.
With facilities in Irvine, Storage West is proud to be a part of Irvine’s community. If you are live in or are planning to visit the Southern California area and you wish to immerse yourself in a Hello Kitty experience, think about making a trip over to the Irvine Spectrum Center to visit this café. We also have a relocation guide on our website which goes into more detail about the Irvine Spectrum Center. It makes for a perfect day out!
