Boogaloo in Maplewood is closing permanently

After 19 years serving the St. Louis area, Boogaloo at 7344 Manchester Road in Maplewood, known colloquially as “the bar with the swings,” has announced via social media “with a heavy heart” that it will be closing permanently after service on June 15. Until then, the Cuban restaurant will open at 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

“Come up and show the staff your support and wish everyone well on our future endeavors,” the post states. “I’d like to thank the Maplewood community, Mid-County Chamber of Commerce and the dozens of employees that have worked here over the years that have made Boogaloo a family. …

"Swing on by one last time to celebrate the years of memories we’ve had as we reflect in our final days. It’s been a swinging good time; farewell to all.”
