Kat Shack Bar & Grill will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time, according to a post Monday on the Main Street bar's Facebook page.
The announcement came only two days after the establishment told Facebook fans they would be closed for the weekend. Over 25 people commented on the status, with the majority asking why Kat Shack closed their doors and when they plan to reopen. So far, their questions have gone unanswered.
Kat Shack is a popular local bar that features regular live music, drink specials and brick oven pizza on the edge of downtown Matawan.
According to New Jersey property tax records, the commercial property at 254 Main Street was last purchased in 2009 for $295,000 by First Star Properties, L.L.C. of Keyport.
Attempts by Patch to reach the business owner in person, by phone and via social media have been unsuccessful so far.
