About Us

Cat & Cloud was created by three friends who believe experiences and connection shape our lives.

Every interaction you have with another person, no matter how small, is an opportunity to leave them in a better place than we found them.

Creating experiences that inspire and connect, that’s what we do. with our team, our guests, and now you.
