Two new businesses are set to open in Long Island City where a popular comedy club was located for more than a decade.

A boxing fitness studio and a Thai restaurant will be moving into the Jackson Avenue space previously occupied by the Creek and the Cave, a comedy club and restaurant that relocated to Texas last year.

The Creek and the Cave closed in November after a 14-year-run. Comedy clubs in New York at the time were subject to severe COVID-19 restrictions.

The 10-93 Jackson Ave. space that was occupied by the club will be split into two.

A boxing fitness studio called BOUT Boxing will open in a 900 square foot space at the northern section of the building, while a Thai restaurant named Ros Niyom will open at the southern end.

BOUT Boxing is owned by the brother and sister duo of Alek and Nell Kucich. The facility is scheduled to open in October, Alek Kucich told the Queens Post.

The pair operate one other BOUT Boxing location. They have a facility in Roslyn, Nassau County, which they established in 2018.

The company will offer boxing-inspired classes for all levels of fitness and experience. The classes are a mix of boxing drills and functional training sessions.

Members will not spar in the classes and will instead use punch bags to hone their boxing skills. Classes will also incorporate weights and total (body) resistance eXercise (TRX) straps.

The sessions will typically last around 45 minutes and will be capped at 10 people per class, Kucich said.

BOUT Boxing will also offer classes for under 18s, which Kucich hopes will make up around half of their business.

“Long Island City seems to be an up-and-coming place with young families so we see the potential for growth there,” Kucich said, adding that his sister Nell has lived in the area for a number of years.

The company will also offer personal fitness training sessions and personal boxing training sessions.

The owners will be hosting a pop-up workout session on Sept. 12 at 9:30 a.m. at Hunters Point South Park. The session will last around an hour.

Meanwhile, the owners of Ros Niyom say they have not decided on an opening date for their new establishment.
