The future of Atomic Cowboy, an anchor of Forest Park Southeast’s Grove entertainment district, is in doubt as the restaurant, bar and performance venue’s equipment and furniture has been posted on an auction website.

“Atomic Cowboy restaurant bar, lounge & multistage entertainment has closed, and this is the chance to take a piece of Grove history,” the post on the GRS Auction & Appraisal Services website states. “Bid now on kitchen, bar and dining equipment and furniture.”

The post on the auction service's website includes photos of the equipment.

Atomic Cowboy has not announced its permanent closure on its website or social media. Attempts since last week to contact the restaurant’s current ownership have been unsuccessful.

Also, a phone call to Atomic Cowboy leads to a “call cannot be completed at this time” recording. Messages sent to the restaurant last week via Facebook and a general email address listed on its website have not been returned.

Atomic Cowboy announced on social media on Nov. 2 that it was closing for the winter and would reopen this spring “when it is safe for our guests & staff at full capacity.” The restaurant has not posted to Facebook or Instagram since then.

Atomic Cowboy opened at 4140 Manchester Avenue in 2005, a forerunner of the Grove’s transformation into a bustling entertainment district.
