Sake House, the Roseville restaurant run by Randy Paragary and nightclub maven Bob Simpson, has closed after less than a year in business. According to Simpson, another company approached him about buying the restaurant, which is located in the Fountains shopping center.
Sake House opened in January as Japanese restaurant and nightclub, with menu consultation by Billy Ngo of midtown's Kru and Red Lotus. Simpson has run nightclubs in Sacramento for more than two decades, including the Cosmopolitan, Empire and 815 L.
Simpson would not disclose the buyers of Sake House, but said that new operation is expected to open within three to four months.
"The Fountains was doing well with the opening of Dave & Busters, so this was all about trying to streamline a bit," said Simpson. "This was just a good business move. Personally, I have plenty of operations to run and it's time to slow down a little bit. I'm feeling positive about it."
