Has it really been almost seven years since Sapporo’s downtown location closed?

Sapporo closes downtown location

Prior to Sapporo, the space was home to another classic concept called Cafe Kilimanjaro, which enjoyed a 15-year run.

Now it’s to become Havana Night, a Cuban restaurant. As we’ve become accustomed, Michael L. Jones has the story at Louisville Business First.

Cuban restaurant slated to open in former Sapporo spot in Downtown Louisville

A new Cuban restaurant is coming to Downtown Louisville. Havana Night LLC plans to open at restaurant at 649 S. Fourth St., near the intersection of Broadway. The 4,500-square-foot building, which includes a patio, was previously occupied by the Downtown location of Sapporo Japanese Grill & Sushi, which closed in 2016.

One of Havana Night’s owners told Jones that the restaurant plans to open “soon.”
