Bar and barbecue restaurant Kangaroo Boxing Club is closings its doors at 3410 11th St. NW in Columbia Heights.

The hangout operated for more than four years in the location, and will shutter in early January. “While we are devastated to have to close our doors at KBC, we remain dedicated to our wonderful staff and the neighborhood we still call home,” the owners said in a statement.

A new “community focused” bar and restaurant will open in the same place this summer. It will be operated by Carrie Dzwil, as well as the team from Ivy and Coney. Meanwhile, some Kangaroo Boxing Club staff will relocate to both Ivy and Coney and Midlands Beer Garden from the same operators.

During its last month or so of operation, they’ll plan to host a few events, including a New Year’s Eve blowout. “We would like to thank our incredible staff, many of whom have been with us from the beginning, as well our family of regulars who allowed us to keep the lights on and pursue our passion since we opened our doors in 2012,” the statement said.
