After 7 years of service to you, Twin Cities Leather & Latte is sad to say it’s time to move on. The café will be closing at the end of the month. It's been our pleasure to serve the local communities and be the hub of leather and kink for the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest. However, continual disagreements with our landlord, changes in City regulations, loss of parking, and frankly, just plain exhaustion on the part of the owners necessitate a change.
The Mr. Twin Cities Leather title and contest, a separate event from café, will continue and we will work with our venue and volunteers to ensure the Twin Cities still has a contest for its community champions. A version of TCL’s custom gear and leather products will continue online, at pop-ups, and with a new space in the future.
We ask you come by in the next week and celebrate a space you helped create. We like to think the meeting spaces, café tables, and back porch played a small part in the phenomenal growth over the last few years of our community. For a brief time, we had a space where we could always be our authentic selves with no repercussions. Let’s remember the love and not dwell on the loss.
