Jul. 14—Solo Vino Wine Parlor in downtown Aiken has served its last customers.
In addition to offering a large selection of a popular alcoholic beverage, the business operated as a restaurant prior to its recent closure.
Entrees on Solo Vino's menu included steaks, pork chops, seared scallops and chicken piccata.
Owners Lou Giusto and Stephanie Sheridan, who are husband and wife, announced their decision to shut down Solo Vino on July 12 in a Facebook post.
"After great consideration, we made the difficult decision to permanently close our doors following Chef Lou's health issues," they wrote. "We want to thank you all for your loyalty and support over the past three years.
"This wonderful community we call Aiken helped a new restaurant survive through COVID, expand to outdoor seating, and flourish as the new kid on the block. What started as our small Solo Vino family has expanded in leaps and bounds because of our incredibly loyal customers."
Giusto and Sheridan also thanked Solo Vino's staff, "past and present."
The restaurant opened in 2019 on the corner of Newberry Street and Park Avenue.
Solo Vino's address was 200 Park Ave.
