Inspired creativity and conversation
Nestled in the center of Pittsburgh, between the neighborhoods of Bloomfield and Lawrenceville, sits a beautiful 1920’s tiny storefront at 4121 Main Street.
A concept shop where the name is the same as the address, 4121 MAIN functions as a gallery featuring flowers, fine art, and a high end coffee bar. Join founders Kira Hoeg and Thommy Conroy, as they share their respective expertise in coffee, floristry, event planning, and art collecting, for inspired creativity and conversation.
Upon entering 4121 MAIN, you will experience a clear sense of
intentional curation, as the shop presentation is guided by a regularly changing editorial calendar. Driven by new ideas, seasonal concepts,
and a focus on artistic intention, the owners create a space that calls back to the origins of the coffee shop and salon, a place to start and engage with revolution. An emphasis on intentionality and craftsmanship guide curation of items such as fresh flower bouquets, personal gifts, cards, Bellocq Tea, and Heart Coffee.
Ms. Hoeg hails from an extensive background in coffee culture and
anthropology studies, culling from ten years of work in the field and
regular international travels. Her passion for coffee culture drove a desire to build a coffee bar focused on the best ingredients, superior craftsmanship, and the community that arises from conversation and sharing new ideas. Selecting coffees from Heart Coffee Roasters in Portland OR, Ms. Hoeg serves traditional coffee and espresso drinks noted for their delicious and smooth nuances from the single origin, direct trade beans.
Known for his work in both the non-profit and private sectors around the Pennsylvania and New York regions, Mr. Conroy has been working in event architecture, floristry, and art curation since 2002. Hailing from a fine art and theater background, Mr. Conroy creates events that focus on guest experience and unforgettable moments, with a floristry practice based in studies in classical floral composition and ikebana technique. He was awarded by the Pittsburgh Creativity Project for
acting as a curator to expand the range of work and deliver artistic
