South U's High-Rise Shuffle

China Gate closes and Oasis Grill moves.

by Sabine Bickford

From the June, 2019 issue

China Gate is closing after thirty-two years at South University and Church St. Oasis Grill, whose current location on South University and near East University is in the demolition zone for a newly announced thirteen-story high rise, will take over the space later this summer.

Oasis owner Nizar El Awar says that landlord Hughes Properties told him his two other businesses--South U Pizza and Rendezvous Hookah--would have to close, but since China Gate's lease was ending, they offered him the space for Oasis. He says he'll be doing "more or less the same thing" in the new location, but the Middle Eastern cafe may "open later and add a late-night menu."
