As we mentioned in This Week’s Dish, Cha Cha Chow is getting its first brick-and-mortar location in a recording studio and bar called The Gaslight Lounge on The Hill. This groundbreaking recording studio will be come together by GC2 – Green Construction Consultants, Matt Stelzer from Amsterdam Tavern and Cha Cha Chow. The the first of its kind, The Gaslight Lounge will serve our city’s music-loving community with a “behind-the-scenes” look into the audio and visual documentation of musical performance as well as have a bar and walk-up food counter. The new spot is set open this fall. 4916 Shaw, The Hill
