WATCHUNG, NJ -- The Colorado Cafe, a local landmark at 154 Bonnie Burn Rd., Watchung, has closed its doors, according to a posting on the country-themed dance hall's Facebook page. Little information was provided in the post as to why the nightclub was shutting its doors forever after more than two decades:
We are closing our doors forever.
For the 22.5 years of Memories, Fun, Good Times, and Happiness.
-Colorado Cafe Staff & Management
The announcement took patrons by surprise since the cafe had just recently posted its July 2017 events calendar.
No notice and just shut down 3 days after releasing Julys schedule !?!

The Colorado Cafe was famed for its country theme, line dancing lessons, and the "Meanest Mechanical Bull in NJ."
