Voodoo Doughnut, the iconic Portland doughnut shop’s anticipated Austin location, is now soft open on Dirty Sixth. For the time being, the bakery will close when every doughnut is sold. Once staff training is done, Voodoo will be open 24 hours a day and eventually feature live music. Remember, it's cash-only, and no, alcohol won't be served. Check out the cereal and candy-topped sweets that were available last night below. Update, 10 a.m.: Thanks to an eagle-eyed tipster, Voodoo opens at 8 p.m. for now. Update, October 9: A rep for Voodoo Doughnut clarified that the doughnut shop will open sporadically throughout the month until the grand opening on Halloween weekend.
The Portland institution took over the former Bourbon Girl space in March. This is the store’s second out-of-state location, after Denver, and its fifth in the U.S. Eventually, Voodoo plans on expanding internationally throughout Asia, including flagships in Tokyo and Taipei. What flavor should Voodoo's (hopeful) Austin doughnut taste like?
