Tom’s Urban has closed after five years on Larimer Square.

The diner shut its doors for good over the weekend — a decision that came with the end of the lease term, according to a representative.

Tom’s Urban will open up a new location inside the Westin Hotel at Denver International Airport and is looking for new spots in Denver and other U.S. cities.

The restaurant originally opened in 2012 as a 24-hour diner — a much-needed option in Denver. But it cut back its hours in 2014. Owner Tom Ryan told Westword, “We learned fairly quickly that that’s good when there are people down here, and it’s not so good for a variety of reasons — business reasons, safety reasons, whatever — when there’s not people down here.”
