Knox Street Pub owner Ryan Ferguson had finally made up his mind. He'd close his beloved Dallas bar in November 2018 and "move on to bigger and better things," he said last year.

But then Dallasites got wind that KSP would be closing, and Ferguson changed his mind. The come-as-you-are bar, where drinking high-end whiskey and downing Jell-O shots happened side by side, will live on. Temporarily.

Ferguson says Knox Street Pub will remain open for several more months — perhaps through April. The plan is to be open three days a week: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from early dinnertime to late-night. 

"We are not signing a new lease, a renewal, or planning on staying throughout another year," Ferguson says in a email. "We are opening on the weekends to allow our patrons one last hurrah until we vacate," he says.

We expect to see some great moves out on that dance floor this weekend.

Knox Street Pub is located at 4447 McKinney Ave., Dallas.
