Three years after introducing “contemporary redneck cuisine” to H Street NE, local watering hole Kitty’s Saloon is calling it quits.

“We are in the process of closing,” an employee who asked not to be named tells Eater. The employee claims they are “relocating” the dive bar and will announce a new location “at a later date.”

Eater spotted kitchen equipment being carried out of the establishment on September 19. The worn-in saloon has developed a solid following during its tenure in the Atlas District, attracting customers with an open-air atmosphere, killer fries, and happy hour deals.

Meanwhile, the neighboring space that used to be sports bar Vendetta is no more.

The newly opened location is now split into two: there’s Twelve XII (menu below), and Kyss Kyss, a dessert bar which has a lengthy daily happy hour; from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., find $5 Long Island iced teas and $3 beers.

The new owner Michelle Fletcher, who used to own several area Coldstone locations, bought the now-defunct bocce haven.
