info_outline Whiskers & Wine Bar- Normal Heights San Diego 08/13/2022
Whiskers & Wine Bar- Normal Heights San Diego On this episode, we head to the Normal Heights area of San Diego, for a sneak peek at the soon to open Whiskers & Wine Bar, a cat lounge & wine bar. Nicole & Chris, owners of Whiskers & Wine Bar gave us a tour of their new venture. They will be offering the opportunity to interact with adoptable cats, while enjoying a nibble from the food counter. Sit back & relax while having a cocktail, beer or glass of wine from their bar which has a full liquor license. Cats are kept separate from the food area. Allergic to cats? No problem. You can see the kitties, separated by a glass wall as you munch. Head upstairs to the second floor, to meet the cats, who have their own stairs up plus a play wall. It is a bright & breezy space. The cats can enjoy a view of the outside from an enclosed area. The cats have their own den, where they can seclude themselves & rest from being around humans (we all need a little alone time!) Nicole & Chris plan to offer yoga classes, art & poetry from local creatives, as well as beer & wine tastings and a venue for small special events. Nicole & Chris have partnered with Saving One Life animal rescue. The cats will be adoptable after a thorough screening of their new servants. It will be agreed on that the cats will be indoor cats only. Whiskers & Wine Bar is located at 2856 Adams Ave, San Diego CA 92116 in the Normal Heights area of San Diego Website: Instagram: Facebook: We hope you enjoy our podcast.
