Plan Your Visit

The kitties and our team are excited to meet you!

Here’s some info to help you prepare for your visit:

• Plan for an early arrival to allow yourself enough time to check in and purchase beverages. If you’re running late, please call us at 808.425.4131. We may release your slot to a walk-in if we don’t hear from you.

• Closest street parking options can be found on either Wai‘alae Ave, 8th Ave or 9th Ave. Like a lot of our Kaimuki neighbors, we unfortunately don’t have a dedicated parking lot. We encourage carpooling, public transit, biking, rideshare and other alternative transportation modes, whenever possible!

• We are a “no shoes” cat lounge – local style. We want our kitties, who will be living in our space, to stay healthy. Who knows what gross or even harmful germs we’re tracking on our shoes? We have cubbies to store your shoes or slippahs in. Bring your own socks, or rent a pair from us for $2.

• You’ll be asked to sign a waiver. Doing this verifies that you understand that kitties have teeth and claws, and that you get that there’s always a risk playing with animals, even the cute ones. 😉 If you want to save some time before your visit, you can sign one in advance.

• We have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you no longer can make it to your cat lounge session, please cancel using the link in your confirmation email, email us at popokiandtea (at), or call our shop at 808.425.4131. Please let us know at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise you risk getting charged.

Mahalo for your understanding, and we look forward to welcoming you to Popoki + Tea!
