Hooters says farewell to South Colorado Boulevard

The Hooters at 1390 South Colorado Boulevard will close after Friday's dinner service. According to a statement from the busty chain, the brokerage firm that owns the shopping center where this particular restaurant is located plans to redevelop the property and couldn't come to terms on a new lease with the franchise owner.

The Colorado Boulevard breastaurant -- which has been in business for the past 23 years -- was not only the first Hooters in the state, but the chain's first location west of the Mississippi River. The franchise owner, Restaurants of America, is currently scouting for a new site for a Denver area Hooters.

Denver has had other Hooters, of course. At one point, the spot now occupied by the Palm was a Hooters; it moved from that spot to 1920 Blake Street, home home to Hayter's & Co. And there are Hooters locations scattered around the 'burbs, including Aurora, Lakewood and Westminster.

As for the shopping center at 1390 South Colorado Boulevard, real estate brokers Antonoff & Co plan to resurrect the property as Century 21 Plaza sometime next year. The plaza "will feature a unique array of restaurants and retailers in approximately 32,000 square feet of newly constructed, architecturally compelling buildings," according to the company's website.

Does anyone remember when the building that the South Colorado Blvd Hooters is in was a Village Inn?  That's one blast from the past.


Ordinarily, I'd applaud this - except for the two Twin Peaks, one Tilted Kilt and probably one more Earl's that will pop up across Denver in its place.
