Cicero’s will shutter after 40 years in The Delmar Loop


An old favorite in The Delmar Loop will close its doors for good. Cicero’s will shutter at 6691 Delmar Blvd., on Sunday, June 25 after four decades in business.


The closure was announced via Facebook on Tuesday, June 20, and comes on the heels of a previous announcement that the venue would no longer book live music, as reported by The Riverfront Times.


No specific reason was given for the closure. In the post, the owners thanked patrons and acknowledged the hard work their family put into the business over the years:


“After nearly 40 years of serving up some of St. Louis’ best pizza, and beer, among other things, we’ve determined it no longer makes sense to continue. Our father, Shawn, put his heart and soul into a place that has become a St. Louis institution. He, and our mom, Alice, sacrificed everything our family had, and took a huge risk, to open Cicero’s. We couldn’t be prouder of them for their accomplishments.”


Neither the owners nor real estate agent Ron Kramer, who will sell the building, responded to repeated requests for comment.
