“After 5 years of service ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar will be closing it’s doors permanently”

300 Florida Ave, NW

From ANXO:

“We’re heartbroken to reveal that a 15-month struggle to find common ground with our landlord will end with us closing our flagship restaurant at 300 Florida Ave NW on Sunday, July 18th, which is the week of our five year anniversary. While this has been a difficult decision we’re confident that it’s the best long-term decision for our business and our family of team members. Please come visit us in Truxton Circle before we close and stay tuned for anniversary celebration events during our final week of service.

While this closure represents the end of a chapter, the ANXO story will continue with the evolution of our Brightwood Park location at 711 Kennedy St NW. Brightwood Park will remain open and hopefully be a natural transition for the countless guests that felt at home in our Truxton Circle location. Work is underway to build a full kitchen and enhance the space to accommodate up to 80 guests. These enhancements will be completed by the end of this year. During the Summer and through the year expect to see cocktail and culinary popups and unique and engaging events. You’ll still be able to purchase your favorite ANXO Ciders, beer, wine, cocktails, and provisions. We’re so excited to continue growing in the Brightwood Park community and to continue the ANXO story with all our guests and partners.

Our Made-in-DC brand, ANXO Cider continues to grow with distribution in 20+ states (and growing) along with international distribution in Nova Scotia and the UK. Our focus on apple driven beverages won’t stop with cider as we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be producing apple brandy at Brightwood Park. Over the past five years we’ve come to know our local apples and we’re confident we can make exceptional brandy from them. Our first spirits will be ready in early 2022, with the finest taking three years to age. ANXO Mixologist Jade Aldrighette will host a Summer Cocktail pop-up as a preview to “Brightwood Brandy,” our new line of apple spirits. Her cocktails will be available at the tasting bar, our various outdoor spaces, and to take home!

Today’s news is bittersweet. We poured our hearts into our Florida Avenue location and will leave behind an epic rebuild of a historic and long-vacant building, which we’ll miss terribly. We are emerging from the pandemic a different business than how we entered it, but our love for Kennedy Street has only grown. We are committed and excited to focus our energy on this amazing neighborhood and can’t wait to share more plans for this over the coming weeks and months.”
