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. Meanwhile, the Colorado Cafe website gives no indication that the establishment has closed and has a scrolling message
No notice and just shut down 3 days after releasing July's schedule !?!

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