Bridget Dunlap's original Rainey Street bar, Lustre Pearl, shuttered officially on Sunday, and Dunlap maintains that not one, but two, epic resurrections are in the works. The "Queen of Rainey Street" tells KVUE that she plans to move Lustre Pearl to "the east side," and she also intends to open a second Lustre in another location on Rainey. Dunlap has also talked up the resurrection on Twitter, and told Eater last fall that she hoped to move "my beautiful Lustre." Eater has reached out for more details.

Lustre Pearl is shuttering to make way for new condo development Millennium Rainey, and crowds packed the bar for its final weekend. Redditor mikevilla has posted a gallery of the bar's final day, and several photos have emerged of Dunlap as Stevie Nicks from Saturday night. Check them out below.
