Banner Elk Sushi Club
The Banner Elk Sushi Club is part of the Downtown Banner Elk Nightlife Group in conjunction with Sorrentos Italian Bistro, The Barra Sports Bar and the Bayou Smokehouse and Grill. Their concept is to present something different to the area if Banner Elk, providing a big city type restaurant and bar in a small town. The Sushi Club also offers a sit down bar area, seating to eat sushi with friends, a dance floor with laser lights ad a stage for comedy performances.

Combining several key elements to create a multi-faceted experience, the Sushi Club has become a local favorite in the Banner Elk night scene.
Fish and other ingredients are flown in fresh every day and prepared exquisitely to give patrons a great dining experience, whether their taste ranges towards raw, or cooked items.
There are nightly food and drink specials, with Cajun specialities on Wednesday, prime rib on Thursdays and seafood specials ranging from Maine lobster to fish and chips on Fridays.
But the Sushi Club is about more than food and drinks.
Wednesdays are Jazz Night at the Sushi Club, with trumpeter Shane Chalke presenting a four-piece house band that plays cool stylings and popular standards from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and beyond.
A guest musician is also brought in every week to sit in with the band and provide variety. Friday is usually karaoke night, creating a fun atmosphere for friends and new acquaintances to enjoy.
And on Saturdays, a variety of DJs transform the Sushi Club into one of the best dance scenes in the High Country, with the lights and music creating a Miami South Beach style of entertainment for those who love Electronic Dance Music.
The unique lighting creates a great atmosphere for enjoying a night of dancing and the latest trends on the EDM scene. It provides a dance-club experience that partiers would be more likely to find in a much bigger city.
