Blue Frog's Local 22 From Bar Rescue Has Closed

Blue Frog's Local 22 in Chicago, Illinois which appeared on the first season of Bar Rescue has closed.  Last night was their last night in business as the owners plan to retire.  The bar posted the following message on Facebook, "After 8 wonderful and crazy years, we’re retiring. Join us for a week of specials and an opportunity to purchase the amazing memorabilia of the bar! Our last day is Friday, May 11!"

Blue Frog's Local 22 also posted a photo that said, "Come see us before we close. After 30 years of slinging burgers & beers, Mimi is retiring!"

The Yelp reviews of Blue Frog's Local 22 were pretty positive averaging a 4 out of five stars, but it seems like the most recent ones were more negative.

In May of 2015, Blue Frog's Local 22 complained about scaffolding in front of their bar that prevented them from opening their patio and caused them to lose money.  They said they were in danger of closing and filed a lawsuit, which you can read here.  The scaffolding came down around July of 2015 and they remained open until now.

Blue Frog's Local 22 has been marked as 'Closed' on the Bar Rescue Updates Page.
