After three years that saw the Hungry Duck go from a fun and friendly bar and restaurant to the most talked about bar in the world, it all came to a sudden end in March, 1999.....or so we all thought. As did its decadent activities, the closing grabbed media attention around the world - including front page stories in Moscow. Click a link below to see what the Moscow papers had to say. The eXile article was written by Doug, the former Duck owner, and also includes some very interesting Duck facts.
A month after the Duck closed, the same location opened as a virtual clone of the old Duck. After a somewhat slow start, the new manager (Johnny, from the old Duck) and owners realized they should just go back to the wild atmosphere that Doug developed to make the old Duck so successful. Now, it is again the crazy, decadent place we all used to love.
