After nine years of being in business, John’s Dock, 303 Dodge St., will close its doors at its current location on Sept. 23.

The announcement was made on the bar’s Facebook page Monday night. But the owner, John Dunk, left the door open for the possibility of the bar being re-opened in another location.

Here’s what he said:

“It is with heartfelt gratitude that our family thanks all of you for sharing the last nine years of our lives. As a result of events that (are) beyond our control, we will be closing our doors on September 23, 2018. We have tried endlessly to negotiate with our landlords, but unfortunately to no avail. It is a very emotional time for us because over these years you all have become more than customers or friends, we are family.”

John’s Dock plans to host a closing party featuring live music at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 23. Dunk mentioned that they planned to re-open in a new location by the end of the year.

“We love you guys and appreciate each and every one of you,” he said.
