Wish you could throw a dance party in your living room, but have a living room the size of a fingernail, or a roommate that hates parties, or a neighbor that calls the landlord every time you play audible music past 7pm? Kinfolk Studios is your answer. At night, it transitions from a laid-back coffee shop vibe to a laid-back dance party vibe, with a DJ spinning excellent tunes. If you have a big group with you, go one door down to Kinfolk 94, which has a bigger space and an equally cool environment.
