Late Night Diner Legend Swingers Has Closed Permanently after 27 Years in Business


Sad days in Los Angeles with the official close of iconic diner Swingers.

The Beverly Boulevard restaurant initially launched in 1993 as an option for late-night, post-bar bites and college-y hangouts, and grew up into a nearly 30-year restaurant legend.

Rumors of Swingers closure had been swirling around April 1.

Ownership confirmed the closure of Swingers to news sources, saying the restaurant had enjoyed a great run, but was not looking to re-launch after the coronavirus pandemic.

Another location of Swingers on the Westside in Santa Monica closed in August 2019.

The Sean MacPherson-headed company, Committed, Inc., also confirmed the closure of its casual British pub the Pikey, which opened in 2012.

The plan for Pikey is to reformat the its space into a new restaurant at some point in the future.
