City The Cha Cha, Like My Heart, Will Go On

Thanks to Slog tipster Colonel Keith Bacon, I just received word of the new liquor license application submitted by the owners of the Cha Cha Lounge, who appear to be fleeing their soon-to-be-condofied block on Pine Street for the sunnier-for-now pastures of Pike St.
According to the application notice, the Cha Cha will be moving in to the space currently occupied by the Des Amis Lounge at 1013 E Pike St. (It’s the place between the Wildrose and Cafe Vita on the south side of the street.) I just called Des Amis and got voice mail, but according to their outgoing message, they’re still up and running—but according to the liquor license application, the place will eventually become the Cha Cha. Early afternoon calls to the Cha Cha also went unanswered, but stay tuned, and join me in looking forward to the six-block migration of Mexican tchotchke from the old Cha Cha to the new Cha Cha in the coming months. (But what’s going to happen to my beloved Bus Stop??)
