Think global, drink local

Plus seven more chances to get some culture with your cocktail.

April 21, 2011

It’s high time we learned to party like the Brazilians, don’t you think?


Local Brazil-loving drinkers have a lot to be pleased about. First comes news of a new cachaca bar in Ballard, and now this: Brazilian Nights, a Brazilian culture series that will take place at bars around Seattle.

The first happens Friday, April 29 at Vito’s on First Hill.

Brazilian jazz musician Jovino Santos-Neto will perform, Brazilian dishes will be served, and the bar will be churning out cachaca cocktails. (Novofogo Cachaca is the event host).

There is no cover charge.

Here are seven more worldly drinking events you might want on your radar:

1. Rosehips, a belly dancing extravaganza, is held the second Wednesday of every month at Rosebud on Capitol Hill.

2. Check out live tango at Century Ballroom (which has a little bar in it!), also on the Hill.

3. Saké Nomi in Pioneer Square regularly hosts sake tastings and educational classes.

4. A live Flamenco dancer performs every Tuesday at Capitol Club’s upstairs bar. It begins at 8:30pm and is a mesmerizing, gorgeous little happening that’s totally free.

5. The owner of Café Presse organizes a French-language table every other Wednesday from 4 to 6pm.

6. Shophouse is a pop-up Thai restaurant that takes over Licorous every Monday night, the dishes are inspired by the chefs’ (Wiley Frank of neighboring restaurant Lark and Poncharee Kounpungchart) culinary experiences in Thailand. It opens at 5pm.

7. Portalis’ current Tuesday night wine series is called Wines of the World. On Tuesday, April 26, try the wines of Australia.
