Whimsical Restaurants Named After Cats

The architecture of El Gato Negro Restaurant in Cusco, Peru, combines the whimsy of a cat face on a door, ancient Inca stonework and Spanish-style balconies, trimmed by antennae on the roof.
Cusco, sitting at an elevation of 11,200 feet (3,400 meters), is the capital of the Cusco Region as well as the Cuzco Province. Its population is almost half a million people. Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire.
UNESCO named Cusco a World Heritage Site in 1983. It is designated as the Historical Capital of Peru by the Constitution of Peru. Two million people visit Cusco every year.

A black cat adorns the sign for the Zum Kater Hotel in Warnemunde, Germany. Zum Kater translates to Tom Cat or Hangover. Warnemünde, literally Mouth of the Warnow) is a seaside resort and a district of the city of Rostock in Mecklenburg, Germany. It is located on the Baltic Sea at the estuary of the river Warnow.

Founded in about 1200, Warnemünde was for centuries a small fishing village with minor importance for the economic and cultural development of the region. In 1323 Warnemünde lost its autonomous status as it was purchased by the city of Rostock in order to safeguard the city’s access to the Baltic Sea. It was not until the 19th century that Warnemünde began to develop into an important seaside resort. Today Warnemünde has about 8,400 inhabitants.
