Check out the menu at Kinship, the rebranded lounge at the Ritz that opens tonight

The Ritz-Carlton is kicking off 2017 with a rebranded lobby lounge that opens tonight.

If you’ve been to the Ritz before, it’ll still look largely the same with new furniture and a stage where the fountain used to be for live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
