Kinship is a place where out of towners visiting from NYC stroll in to take a break and enjoy a cup of coffee before their departure. It is a place where you can find staff engaging in powerful conversations about equality, and scifi books all int he same breath. It is a place that serves as a refuge for creatives and artist to feel at home. A space where artists feel seen, heard and appreciated. Some may take a meeting, while others use the open window format to dive into their craft and melt into the energy of flow.

Kinship is a place where friends who no longer are neighbors can come together and reconnect now living cities apart over a warm cup of coffee. There are many energies that walk into Kinship every day. Those energies are the ones that either need their cup filled or have enough to share. Either way, you know that when you walk through those doors, just like their windows. Their heart is always open to receive you with love.
