Coming Soon – Whistling Kettle Schenectady

Schenectady, N.Y. – The Whistling Kettle has announced plans to open a new location of their tea themed retail and restaurant concept in the heart of downtown Schenectady. With plans currently estimated for a spring-2019 opening, the new Whistling Kettle will be located at 138 Jay street, the pedestrian-only portion of the street already home to many small businesses and just a few steps away from Proctors Theater.

Kevin and Meahgan Borowsky, the principals of the Whistling Kettle, chose Schenectady because of the many positive developments associated with the revitalization of downtown. The couple also partnered with Schenectady Metroplex to help address challenges with the location, which has been vacant since 2002. “This was a project over a year in the making, with numerous delays and difficulties that had to be resolved in order to move forward. We are grateful to Metroplex who recognized our vision of the property and helped us to overcome the particular challenges associated with it,” Kevin Borowsky said.

The new location will feature the same menu and tea selection as the other locations.

“We are excited to create a unique design that will fit in with the rest of downtown but keeps the comfortable and inviting aspects that are a signature element of the Whistling Kettle experience. Each location has its own distinctive feel and personality – but in the end we strive to provide the same quality experience across all locations, and to promote our slow-down-and-drink-tea philosophy,” says Meahgan Borowsky
