We have decided to open our doors starting this SUNDAY, June 7th for BRUNCH. We will open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m .. Our Dinner service will start the next evening on Monday June 8th.

Our hours of operation will be Monday through Saturday evening for dinner and Saturday and Sunday day only for Brunch.

Due to Covid regulations and our assurance of social distancing, we have decided to incorporate, The Beauty Shop, our sister music club, Bar DKDC, our newest Back Dō Oasis Patio behind the Beauty Shop and our patio out front of the Beauty Shop.

Beauty Shop, DKDC & Mollies Employee Relief Fund

As the situation is continuing to unfold in our community, The Beauty Shop, Bar DKDC, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and Another Roadside Attraction Catering is working to navigate these uncertain times in the hospitality world.

As many of you in the community have reached out to me in the last few days and asked how you can help us through these unchartered waters; I have come up with a concept. A GO-FUND ME EMPLOYEE RELIEF page for all my STAFF. All donations to this relief fund will go directly back to each one of my fifty employees.

My thoughts and concerns are with my employees, customers and community. I have an obligation to my restaurant and catering family to sustain their revenue during these times. As an owner I am concerned about their livelihood and making sure my staff will be able to pay their bills, support their families and put food on their tables. Now more than ever we have to appreciate our community and the importance of protecting and respecting each other.

As an owner, I am willing to sustain my part of their revenue but I alone cannot cover what they rely on, which are the tips that are generated from the public. So I have decided to start a Go-Fund me page for all my staff; Bartenders, Waiters Line Cooks, Prep staff , Dishwashers, Hostesses and the list goes on and on.

To show our appreciation we will be throwing a DON’T CORONA blow out once this has come to an end. I will be hosting a huge free party with food and cocktails to all of you who so graciously gives to this serious cause. I want to say thank you in advance, to our patrons who donate to this cause. We value being able to serve our Memphis community / Our Beauty Shop, Bar DKDC, Mollie Fontaine Lounge and Another Roadside Attraction Family deeply appreciates you.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to change, so will we. Please bear with us and check our website and social media often for updates. We are grateful to be a part of this community and appreciate your continued support, as always.

We hope you and your families stay safe during these unprecedented times.

With all my Heart Thank you,

Karen B. Carrier
Chef / Owner

At BAR DKDC, we’ve paired Chef Karen Carrier’s eclectic tastes with the essence of local cuisines — international street food. The soul of the street, Our menu of small plates reads like an global backpacker’s food diary. Oaxacan Mexican to Shashlik from Israel. Spanish Tapas to the spices of the Caribbean. Plus, we change it up every five weeks. Relax in our intimate space with textiles from India, masks from Cuernavaca and Taxco, furnishings from our own Southern Delta, and music from all of the above.

Order a cocktail that matches the mood and travel with us.

It was a chance encounter in the restroom of a trendy New York City Bar. A struggling art student mentioned her love of cooking and lack of money. The other woman was a caterer in need of workers. The two exchanged names and Chef Karen Carrier never returned to graduate school. Instead she has enjoyed a varied career in food and has never regretted her decision to swap palette for palate.

Like all good southerners, she eventually returned home to Memphis in 1987 to start a family and plant the seeds for a restaurant empire.


Carrier launched Another Roadside Attraction Catering, the stunning revival of downtown Memphis with Automatic Slims Tonga Club (which she sold in 2008), The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Do Sushi, Noodle Doodle do, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and her newest venture—Bar-DKDC Social Club.

Critics have applied descriptors like daring, exuberant, eclectic and risk-taking to her restaurant ventures – words that apply equally well to the fanciful fusion food, the funky décor and chef—owner Karen Carrier. Her ambitious cooking combines big Southern and international flavors—it’s what Food & Wine described as “in your face” cooking: imaginative, well-prepared, and full of surprises.
