Apparently, after a year of riding high, not all is well at Treadsack Group. This week, the remarkable success of spots like Bernadine’s and Hunky Dory have been overshadowed by the surprising closure of Foreign Correspondents, and now, yet another of the group’s concepts will soon bid Houston adieu.
CultureMap reports that Canard, the cocktail bar that shared space with Foreign Correspondents, will also be forced to shutter due to a serious lack of patrons. When the bar made its debut earlier this year, it was arguably one of the city’s most exciting arrivals, but the quick departure of beverage director Leslie Ross Krockenberger tempered a bit of that excitement in short order.
While not great for Treadsack, the closure of Canard does mean great things for thrifty Houston drinkers. Starting today, the bar will serve every cocktail on the menu and most of its stash of liquor for $5. “Super high-end stuff” will go for $10 in what may be the most delicious fire sale of all time.
At present, Canard is set to stay open until January 1, assuming that the bargain booze doesn’t run out before then. What will happen to the space that housed both Canard and Foreign Correspondents remains to be seen.
