Despite assurances to the contrary, it is now patently obvious that Sushi Rock in the Warehouse District will not reopen this fall as planned. The space on W. 6th Street currently is available for lease.

The once-swanky sushi restaurant and club opened 13 years ago this month. When it abruptly closed its doors last July, the owners vowed that the move was temporary and that the club would reopen after a major renovation.

A prepared statement from management reads: "The Downtown Sushi Rock will not be re-opening at this time in its
previous location. The Space is currently available for lease. We are so proud to have been one of the founding businesses in the warehouse district. We started our concept on West 6th street and were able to grow into multiple locations including Beachwood, Columbus and South Florida. We thank the community for their years of patronage - without them our success would not be possible. Cleveland is going through a lot of changes right now, and we felt that our upscale dining concept was no longer a good fit for the location on West 6th. We are seeking possible new locations for the future, and will be sure to keep everyone posted."
