A community hub.
There is nothing quite like The Sitting Room.
Situated on a quite tree-lined street, steps away from East Rock Park, you feel like your "out of the city." Hop on the highway from downtown, and arrive at our free parking lot in ten minutes. Once an old factory building, red brick made way for massive windows that pour in light year round, plenty of plants, perfect tables and lots of comfortable seating make it feel a bit like a hotel lobby. In fact, that wouldn’t be a stretch as the space is shared with Mactivity, a 5-star fitness center in the back.
Opening in the summer of 2019, but years in the making, the inspiration for The Sitting Room come from owners Sara-Joy and James who believe deeply in intentional space, fresh ingredients, community connection, good wine, and lattes with the cute little hearts on top.
