Hello Kitty just got a whole lot better. 


Sanrio has opened its first permanent Hello Kitty cafe in Irvine, California on September 17, 2018. This location’s two concepts—a cute a cafe and a reservations-only cocktail and tea bar—has attracted attention all over the media.

This brand has been popular among Japanese pop culture fans since its creation in the 1970s, and since then has traveled to the United States and grown internationally.
