Max Lounge in West Fargo announced it is closing (on Facebook) with a posting indicating the move is temporary and the business will reopen in the fall.

Ramon Sosa, general manager of Max Lounge, 1410 9th St. E., and a sister business in West Fargo, Maxwells Restaurant and Bar, said that when Max Lounge reopens it will be under a new name and with a new business concept.

He said the name is still being decided, but remodeling will start soon. A reopening is expected sometime in September.

Sosa said the Max Lounge concept wasn’t working, so as the summer slowdown arrived they decided it was a good time to make a change.

The Facebook posting put it this way:

“Summer is all about time off, so our very own lounge is going to take a brief vacation during these next couple months.

“We will be able to create new drinks, new menu items, and a new calendar that is sure to blow your long johns off!” stated the post, which encouraged customers to visit Maxwells.
