Upshur Street Kennedy Street continues to roll – next up comes word of a new bar coming to 518 Kennedy Street, NW. What has my excitement to a level nine is who it’s from – the owners of Ivy & Coney in Shaw, the bar manager of KBC (Kangaroo Boxing Club) in Columbia Heights and Matthew McGovern, Tchotchke Curator extraordinaire from Columbia Heights and Brookland/Edgewood. Not a bad trio.

So quickly before I get scooped – the bar’s name is still being worked out. If all goes well it will open next year. It will have the same low key, laid back vibe as KBC and Ivy & Coney. There will be a nice outdoor patio area – though the owners are taking great lengths to ensure the neighbors are happy. Many more updates as construction progresses and they get closer to opening next year!
