    About us: Kindred is a members Club in Hammersmith, west London. The Club occupies the top two floors of the Grade II listed Bradmore House mansion, with the ground floor being home to our public-facing restaurant Cellar, with menus created by guest-chef Andrew Clarke.

    The Club was female-founded by a former social worker and one of this year’s CODE Hospitality’s 30 under 30 winners, Anna Anderson; a social entrepreneur passionate about creating spaces that bring people together through shared experiences, notably food and drink, music, and ideas that help shape a better tomorrow.
