Set in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood, the Chicha Cafetin hotel restaurant was inspired by street-style fritangas and cafetins that Nicaraguan-born architect Palazio Wall remembers from his childhood.
The restaurant was made inside an old warehouse garage, converting it into an airy and playful South American space with a background of blues and tropical-themed colors. Adding thick hardwood flooring, cement times and luxurious gold-hued chairs, the space has a unique design that is already an instant classic for locals and tourists. Local artist W3RC put forward a giant tropical jungle mural to create a warm atmosphere that is modern and comforting.
The Chicha Cafetin restaurant serves a Millennial take on classic Nicaraguan street food, with multiple house-made options and flavorful dishes to pull together a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
