On September 22, The Flying Dog restaurant and lounge bar, located on Marsland Drive, announced on their official Facebook page that they would be closing after 20 years of business on Tuesday October 2.

The restaurant’s final event, “The Last Hurrah,” was on Saturday, October 1. The Flying Dog opened in 1987 and has been a staple in the Waterloo community ever since.

The restaurant and lounge bar was also open to holiday-events, such as Halloween and New Year’s Eve.

While there is a scheduled Halloween event on October 29, there has been no comment on whether Pearl Nightclub, which is attached to The Flying Dog, will also close.

“On behalf of the staff and management, we would like to thank our countless loyal guests and friends,” the post read on the Flying Dog’s Facebook page. “It has been an absolute privilege serving and entertaining you and we thank you very much for your loyalty. We have enjoyed over 20 years of undeniable success thanks to you and our outstanding staff!”


The Flying Dog has not issued a statement to The Cord on the closing.
