Cachaa (pronounced ka-SHA-sa") is the newest late-night Jazz Club in Greenwich Village, located at 35 W. 8th Street between Fithth & Sixth Avenue in New York City. The name Cachaa is inspired by the Brazilian liquor called Cachaa, which is distilled from unrefined sugarcane juice and is the principal ingredient in a Caipirinha (pronounced kai-pee-REEN-yah"), the national cocktail of Brazil. (Please see the drink menu).
Cachaa is a beautiful, intimate room decorated in a Brazilian theme featuring the best in live jazz and world music. A double bass in our lobby sets the tone and vibe of the club. A perfectly conditioned 1932 mahogany 7 foot Steinway piano graces the stage. The room is tuned using a double bass as an acoustic reference, resulting in a superb listening experience. A quiet policy applies during each performance.
The cover charge is $10, plus a $15 minimum per person. No food is served, however menus from selected area restaurants are available.
The new Greenwich Village club Cachaa is already making its mark on the area's teeming jazz scene with a musician friendly atmosphere and late night schedule that mixes mainstream, Brazilian and AfroCuban... -- Russ Musto, All About Jazz
