The Cavalier, the bar that took over Dog & Duck’s vacated space on 2400 Webberville Road in East Austin, is opening this week on Friday, March 9.

The neighborhood bar focuses on beers, cocktails, shots, and Southern-inspired food. The counter-service menu spans bar snacks (pimento cheese, deviled eggs), fried chicken, burgers with cornbread brioche buns, po’ boys, to rice pudding.

Drinks-wise, there are classics like Negronis and daiquiris, along with the frozen Red Headed Stranger cocktail with mezcal and strawberry puree. The powerful draft option, the Zombie, comes with a two-drink limit. Guests are also encouraged to mix-and-match their own drinks with booze, mixers, and garnishes. Plus there are local draft beers and wines. Scope out the full menus below.

Co-owners Chadwick Leger and Rachelle Fox know their way around bars and restaurants. Leger used to be the manager of East Sixth bar Shangri-La and Fox was the general manager of Neapolitan pizzeria Backspace.

Cavalier’s initial hours are from 4 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Friday, and until 1 a.m. on Saturday. The bar will expand with full hours in April from 1 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Friday, and until 1 a.m. Saturday. It’ll host a grand opening party sometime after SXSW.

The second iteration of Dog & Duck, after it relocated from West 17th Street in 2015, closed last fall.
