Kindred Owner To Bring Plant-Based Mothership To San Diego's South Park Neighborhood

April 23, 2021

Moving into the space that currently houses Del Sur Mexican Cantina in San Diego's South Park is Mothership, a new plant-based concept from the owners of nearby Bar Kindred. 

Kory Stetina partnered with Consortium Holding's founder Arsalun Tafazoli in 2015 to open Kindred, a death-metal themed vegan restaurant and cocktail bar destination in San Diego's South Park neighborhood. The duo recently finalized a deal with owners of Del Sur Mexican Cantina, which will close next month, and will take over the nearby space for an out of the ordinary new concept. 

Inspired as a take it and run offshoot of Kindred's weekly "Permanent Vacation" pop-up, Mothership will be a "tropical space adventure bar" featuring frequently changing wild cocktails and unique plant-based food offerings. The bar will be designed by Ignacio "Notch" Gonzalez of Top Notch Kustom, who helped with the build of many popular bars including San Francisco's iconic Smuggler's Cove and Consortium Holding's False Idol speakeasy in San Diego's Little Italy. Expect an immersive concept inspired by a space exploration meets tiki-tropics theme with a rum-heavy cocktail list and a completely vegan menu from Kindred's longtime chef Dylan Craver. 

Mothership aims to open by year's end at 2310 30th Street in San Diego's South Park neighborhood.
