Umi & Kushi Bar Owner Investing in Capitol Hill Expansion

We learned from our news partner Capitol Hill Seattle that the Belltown owner of Umi and KushiBar is planning an expansion to Capitol Hill. We’re glad that Belltown business appears to be strong enough to finance an expansion to other areas of the city.

…According to King County Property records, the buyer of the $1.5 million, 1922 warehouse-turned-retail space is a certain Steven Han of Seattle. A person familiar with the situation tells us it’s the same Steve Han behind Belltown’s Umi Sake House and Japanese streetfood concept Kushibar. Not sure which way Han is going to go with his 12th Ave establishment but it’s a good bet the direction is to the east. Whatever the concept ends up being, we probably won’t see a new place in the location for a few months. There are no construction permit applications even filed yet. We haven’t confirmed the details with Han yet but will try to catch up with him as things progress.

  1. Not only do I love both Umi Sushi and KushiBar, but I love learning about local business owners taking pride and ownership in their communities! Big props to Steve Han for not only having the best restaurant for parties (my bday party at Umi was unforgettable!) and holding true to what real Japanese street food is with Kushibar, but for really turning Seattle and Belltown into one of the best places around 🙂
