Kumoricon 2019

Ghost Neko’s Purranormal Maid Café

Ghost Neko's Purranormal Maid Café

We kindly invite you to Kumoricon's premier Maid Café at the DoubleTree by Hilton, with sessions running Friday through Sunday afternoon. Each session combines a sampling of a Japanese maid cafe experience with the community of an American convention, presented as a special dining event.

Each table is under the dedicated attention of a maid or butler, with games, food, and prizes. The maid cafe is a great place for a snack or to get away from the crowds at the OCC. Memorialize your experience with an exclusive pin and a signed instant photograph from our staff. Reserve your seats early to lock in your table!

Online pre-sales have now concluded. Walk-in seatings will be available.

The Maid Café offers both pre-booked and on-site reservations, as well as accommodating walk-ins, subject to seat availability. Parties may be grouped together when seated.

Reservation Guidelines

  • Reservations can be made online until Sunday, November 10, 2019.
  • In addition to walk-in tickets, at-con reservations may be made at the entrance to the Maid Café if space is still available for a later session. When making an at-con reservation, please be prepared to provide name, phone number, number of guests, and any accommodations or requests. (Ex: We have a wheelchair, I have a service animal, etc.)
  • Payment is due at the time of reservation, and is per-person and non-refundable.
  • Reservations should arrive with their full party 30 minutes prior to their session. Doors for reservations open 15 minutes prior to the session. If the entire party is not here at this time then the reservation will not be fulfilled, unless prior notification or contact has been made.
  • If you miss your reservation, it does not transfer over to the next seating, nor place you near the front of the walk-ins.

Table Availability

  • Walk-ins
    • Tables are given to people with reservations first. Smaller groups may be asked to pair with another group to use the most amount of seats per sitting.
    • After 15 minutes past the reservation time, walk-ins may be accepted subject to availability of our Maid and Butler staff.
    • Walk-ins will be seated in groups of five, when possible.
    • Walk-ins are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Walk-ins are not guaranteed to be seated. Depending on Maid and Butler staff availability, we may be required to turn away some waiting walk-in guests.
  • Groups larger than nine
    • Groups larger than nine will be split, subject to seating availability and table arrangements. We limit tables to nine guests in order to ensure that each Maid and Butler can dedicate their attention to everyone at the table.

    • We are very happy to accommodate wheelchair seating at the Maid Café. In order to best assist us in preparing accommodations, please inform us of your wheelchair seating during your reservation or purchase, or as soon as you become aware of your requirement.
