& Kin | 112 pax


What used to be an Old Mushroom Farm shed has been transformed into a modern venue designed for stimulating interaction and special events with that certain something.


& Kin can host up to 112 people. In three separate spaces you can hold a spectacular dinner party, put on an unforgettable show or meet for important company functions with an outstanding value on 213 m2.

The Lobby, with a face of glass and steel, leads you into the & Kin building. An intimate segue where guests can mingle before the main event. The Auditorium is a spacious hall with a double volume ceiling- perfect for bigger congregations. The Conservatory is a stunning greenhouse made of glass and steel.


Enjoy an ambience at & Kin characteristic of the Old Mushroom Farm- thanks to visionary architect Nick Crooks. Nostalgic masonry combined with modern steel and glass elements form a stimulating whole. A mix of vintage and modern furnishings, as well as furniture designed in-house for & Kin, lead the creative direction within the industrial architectural style.
