Ebisu bar Tokyo Robin counts plenty of attractive ladies and gentlemen among its clientele, but even the most stunning patrons here are overshadowed by the one-year-old Robin, dubbed the sexiest cat in Tokyo. Always eager to strike a pose for the camera, this fetching feline is the owner of an enchanting aura that betrays her tender age. Stroke her shiny fur for too long and she’ll start hissing threateningly – this is a beauty not easily tamed.
Ebisu Bldg 2F, 4-10-8 Ebisu, Shibuya-ku. 03 6447 7333. 12noon-12midnight, closed Mon.
If you prefer a less troublesome but equally handsome date, head for Shinjuku’s retro Cafe Arles. Working the floor here is the five-year-old Jirocho, whose well-manicured whiskers and funky bangs lend him a manly, model-like appearance. Also the owner of a loving, caring personality, this is a kitty who’ll put the neighbourhood’s host club playboys to shame.
5-10-8 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku. 03 3356 0003. 11.30am-10pm, closed Sun.
