Popular restaurant party chain Señor Frogs has closed down their recently opened location in Times Square, Manhattan, according to the post on Grubstreet.com.
The fiesta-friendly location had only opened its doors in Times Square back in September of 2015. It joined other locations around the world such as Miami, Aruba, and Cancun, Mexico. Despite not being close to a tropic location like the others, the Times Square restaurant did its best to live up to being a party spot like the other locations. However, it seems that their efforts were just not enough to keep the party alive, despite receiving good reviews. The Facebook page for the location confirms that it is closed and the website no longer exists. A check on the main Señor Frog’s website no longer shows any locations for a restaurant in New York City. There are still locations in Myrtle Beach and Vegas however.
A reviewer who visited the Times Square location when it first opened noted the enthusiasm that the staff seemed to have for their jobs. It seemed that the crowd enjoyed what they had to offer as well. The party vibe was alive, even during the day, which can be hard to do especially at a location like Times Square that could potentially bring in a lot of families rather than single party-goers. Many of the customers who stopped into the location while it was open found it to be fun and entertaining. Even a “New York Times” critic who reviewed the location wrote that it was one of the most entertaining restaurants he had been to in quite sometime. Unfortunately those good times had to end.
