Margaritas at Zanzibar

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Mandan Lynn on March 11, 2013

We passed by Zanzibar at first because there was no one in there, but when we got to the end of the street we stopped in a bar/restaurant that was so crowded and loud with live music that we turned around. Crowds and live music at a restaurant are usually good signs, but we were just in the mood for something quieter. Zanzibar looked perfect at that point.

What strikes you first is the unusual decor, which the bartender told us had all been brought over from Indonesia. The tables and chairs are especially cool. The drink menu is simple but full of variety. We briefly considered getting a fishbowl drink ($14.00) to bring back some college memories, but decided on a margarita each. I had a coconut marg, and my boyfriend went for the Special Margarita (made with Patron instead of Cuervo). Each was $4.00.

Both were good. Mine was frozen and a little too mild flavored, but it was garnished with coffee beans! We both enjoyed sipping and chatting.

We left after one drink, but only because it had already been a long night and we were ready for bed. I hope that place picks up, because based on the atmosphere and what they have to offer, they deserve a crowd.
