They started out doing noodles — but no one came. They switched to sushi — and still no one came. Mere days after the Post and Courier awarded them a 3 1/2 starred review, Uni Bar in West Ashley closed their doors for good.

Proprietor Jen Kulick, who ran the sake/sushi bar with her husband Michael, said they just weren’t able to make it work. They’ll go back to solely running Voodoo, their cool tiki bar a couple doors down in the Avondale shopping center, which has never had trouble attracting a crowd with its gourmet tacos and exotic cocktail menu.

The space is still under lease by the folks over at Andolini’s, so let’s hope they’ll put it to good use in the near future.
