Both the Bar Louie at Bayshore Town Center and the location on Water Street are closed for good.

According to a Facebook post, Bar Louie's last day of service was Saturday, Jan. 25. 

The short-and-sweet post reads: "To our loyal guests, our last day of business was January 25th, 2020. Please go to to find the Bar Louie nearest to you. Thanks for the memories! -Louie"

The national chain bar and restaurant was located at 1114 N. Water St. and opened in the summer of 2006.

The Bar Louie at Bayshore Town Center also closed this weekend, according to an employee who answered the phone on Sunday.  The location at Brookfield Square remains open.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
