Bush Garden restaurant is going through a period of transition. The building has been sold to new owners who seek to develop the property. Bush Garden is actively seeking out stories about the restaurant from community members as well as volunteers to help with the transition. Interested individuals can participate by going to this link or by emailing [email protected].
The restaurant portion of the business will temporarily close on October 29, 2016. The bar and karaoke business will continue operations from 5:00 p.m. – 1:30 a.m. daily.
“As development plans move forward, I am hopeful to find another space in the International District to continue the long history of Bush Garden being a community gathering place and home to so many,” Bush Garden owner Karen Akada Sakata said. “I am grateful for the support shown to the Bush Garden family for all of these years.”
Bush Garden is the second oldest Japanese restaurant in Seattle and Washington state. More information will be released when available.
