With its red velvet curtains and soft jazz soundtrack, the restaurant proved a favourite French-style escape for many locals since opening its doors in 2016.
Mary Randles, owner of the Fortitude Valley venue, took to Facebook yesterday to announce news of its closure, explaining that she wouldn't be renewing the lease and that the dinner service on Saturday, July 21, had been the final act.
In the social media post, Randles also praised Madame Rouge's loyal customers and employees, saying "we can't fully express our sincerest gratitude for your custom and support. Serving you has been nothing but an absolute pleasure."
"We feel privileged we were able to watch you share memorable times over many meals with your friends, family and associates," she continued.
Randle, who also owns modern Australian Newstead restaurant E'cco Bistro, revealed she'll now be focusing her full attention on her remaining venture, with plans for some "exciting new additions" come September.
