LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new and unusual tourist attraction will soon be open in San Francisco.

According to, pop up eatery "The Rat Cafe" will be open for two days in July at the San Francisco Dungeon.

The restaurant will feature rats that have been rescued and rehabilitated. The rodents will move throughout the restaurant while customers dine.

If a customer feels drawn toward any of the animals, they will be able to adopt one through the nonprofit Rattie Ratz, which rescues, rehabilitates and places the rats up for adoption.

An entrepreneur behind the concept says the goal was to create a "frighteningly funny encounter."
