A beloved classic of the Austin bar scene will shutter at the end of the month. A call to Dog & Duck Pub confirms the long-swirling rumors they will shutter on October 31. The good news: there are definite plans to relocate the bar.

Update! The Statesman reports the owners are in negotiations for a space on East 7th Street, and could reopen as soon as January.
