SUSHISAMBA Invites You to SAMBAHour

For the month of June, SUSHISAMBA will be offering a Brazilian inspired happy hour and reverse happy hour at both of their NY locations. The restaurants will feature Brazilian entertainment and workshops (including Caipirinha cocktail lessons) that pay homage to the cuisine that makes up a third of the SUSHISAMBA menu.


Caliche Rum is a product collaboration of Roberto Serrallés of Destilería Serrallés, a renowned sixth generation family-owned rum business, and prominent hospitality and nightlife impresario, Rande Gerber. The rum launched recently in March and is now available for $24.99 in major cities including LA, NY, Chicago, Miami and Dallas.
