WATCHUNG, NJ — The Colorado Cafe has a new message on its Facebook page Wednesday addressing outstanding gift certificates and alerting patrons to save photos before the Facebook page is terminated. The local landmark at 154 Bonnie Burn Rd. closed its doors earlier this week.
The announcement, posted on Facebook, took patrons by surprise, as the cafe had just recently posted its July 2017 events calendar. Many patrons young and old were stunned at the abrupt closing and took to social media to commiserate with more than 20,00 comments on its Facebook post as of Thursday morning.
The Colorado Cafe was famed for its country theme, line dancing lessons, and the "Meanest Mechanical Bull in NJ."
Little information was provided in the closing announcement 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.
