Bar Otaku has closed its doors.

The restaurant was located in the Gulch at 505 12th Avenue South, Nashville.

Via Facebook, they announced their closure, “Thank you NASHVILLE, it’s time for us to say goodbye to Bar Otaku. We set out a year ago to give Nashville a fun, vibrant Izakaya that both reminded us of Japan, and claimed a stake for the American Izakaya. We are proud to say that we did just that, but business requires hard decisions, and for us that means it’s time to place 100% of our love, attention to building more Otaku Ramen’s both in Nashville and beyond.”

We loved every single moment of this last year at Bar Otaku and we hope you did too. This is not the last you will see of Izakaya from The Otaku Group, we have some exciting announcements coming up. While it’s hard to move on after all of the blood sweat and tears we have put into this space over the last three years, we are excited about what the future holds. Izakaya at home? You bet we will. A Ramen shop in ur neighborhood….we are coming for you.”
.
At the end of their message, it sounds like their space will not be vacant for long.
“Stay tuned as we have the amazing privilege to introduce you to the next tenant in the space in coming days, as we will help them prepare to become a beloved part of the Nashville community. We cant wait for you to meet them.”
