Santa Monica diner to close August 31
By Sam Catanzaro
There are very few late-night eateries in Santa Monica and there will soon be even less as Swingers diner has announced they will close on Saturday, August 31.
“This has been a tough and emotional decision for us to make, but one that is necessitated by business circumstances. Continual rising costs, food, labor, and operating expenses made our business model impossible to continue to maintain,” said Swingers said in a statement. “To all of our talented cooks, servers, hosts, bussers, dishwashers, managers both past and present and to our guests, our friends, and family…you have enhanced our lives, and we want to say Thank You for the journey.”
The restaurant, located on the corner of Broadway and Lincoln, stays open until 3 a.m., making it one of the few places in Santa Monica to grab a bite to eat in the wee hours of the morning.
Swingers’ Hollywood location will remain open says the company.
