The Launch of Kin Event Space

Kin Event Spacethe owner and manager of Kin Event Space, the brainchild of Kristin Klock-Wattie who owns Root Catering, opened last week in an exciting space behind Living Roots Wine & Co.

Kin Event Space Manager Shannon Klymochko shared, “Root Catering has been around for eight years, and the owner recently decided to open an events space in a former shipping warehouse at the edge of Rochester’s historic NOTA district.

Repurposing a historic building, for event flexibility

Kin Event Space DecorShannon explained that they’re excited about repurposing the building, maintaining hints of its original design. They have not added a lot of additional design elements, in order to be able to hold any type of event from corporate affair to wedding. It’s essentially a blank slate so let your imagination take flight! The space can accommodate from 120 to 150, plus dance floor for a seated event, or up to 200 for a cocktail reception.

“We have a full bar, with a seasoned bartender who creates craft cocktails as part of the bar package, and although we offer great catering onsite, with a full menu selection, we don’t require use of our caterer.


“We’re really looking forward to helping to build the community.”
