Slowburger Shutters at the Ocean Complex

How did this happen?


Slow Bar spin-off Slowburger has flipped its last patty inside of the Ocean micro-restaurant complex at 2329 NE Glisan St. With Slow Bar’s dedicated following, Slowburger’s fast-casual business model, and the NE Glisan and 24th neighborhood’s reputation as a dining destination, the closure is surprising. Slowburger served some of the most bang-for-your-buck happy hour burgers and an on-point veggie burger.

But the original Slow Bar and its signature burger, the Slowburger, appears to have retained the majority of the fan loyalty. In 2017, WWeek declared the only true Slowburger burger exists at Slow Bar, not its spin-off.

Fortunately, Slow Bar powers on at 533 SE Grand Ave.

Slowburger threw open the doors in 2012. Eater has reached out to the restaurant for details. Its announcement on Facebook reads:

It is with great sadness we have closed this location. You can still get our burgers at Slow Bar for those 21 and over. Thank you everyone for five years of burger love.
