Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen

110 W. Birch St. Brea, CA 92821 | Brea | 714-255-1040

Location Description:

One guess what the starring spirit is here. Located in the downtown Brea spot once occupied by Market City Cafe, Cha Cha's maintains much of the architectural aesthetic of that eatery. The walls go from exposed brick walls to clean plaster; you can still see the brick arches of the kitchen ovens. But now, the dark wooden shelves lining the beige upper walls of the bar house potted agave plants-because of the theme, see? With 45 different labels on hand, this joint features a wealth of signature tequila-based cocktails. Want something foamier? Go with a Dos Equis, Tecate or Blue Moon from the tap. Distractions such as pool and video games are absent, but Cha Cha's makes up for this with a lively crowd of revelers in addition to projected screenings of classic films such as The Three Amigos on any given night. Tuesdays feature half-off tequilas; happy hour is Sunday through Thursday all day. Salud!
