Hello Kitty is Kitty White, a white cartoon cat created in 1974 and owned by the Japanese company Sanrio. This ubiquitous character has enjoyed unfettered success for decades, consistently recruiting new legions of ardent fans who can’t get enough of her super-sweet merchandise and culture.

Before the Las Vegas locations opened, fans had to travel to Irvine, California to visit a licensed Hello Kitty cafe. The Hello Kitty Grand Cafe inside the Irvine Spectrum Mall offers a full menu of food, drinks, and treats, and their afternoon tea service is a must-do if you’re in the area. Sanrio also recently announced the opening of a second California location. Gudetama Cafe opened on May 4, 2024, in Buena Park, serving mainly breakfast items in the classic Hello Kitty styling.

About the Hello Kitty Cafe in Las Vegas

There are actually two Hello Kitty Cafes in Las Vegas. The first is inside the Fashion Show Las Vegas (a high-end mall anchored by a Niemen Marcus store) located at 3200 Las Vegas Blvd S Ste. 600. This location features a delightful menu of fresh-baked goodies, hot and cold drinks, and tons of adorable Hello Kitty merchandise. They have a lovely seating area and often offer special events.

The second location is right around the corner at the Park MGM resort hotel. It’s actually a container structure that sits outside of the hotel near the entrance to the New York-New York Hotel and Casino. You can find it at 3778 S Las Vegas Blvd. Both the Las Vegas locations are open from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day.
