We once walked into Zig Zag at 9pm on a Saturday night, and the bartender looked at us as if we were lost. It may have had something to do with the fact that there were only about about five other people here. Whatever the reason, we're into this place. Zig Zag has an elaborate tropical theme—with leafy wallpaper, lots of plants, a shark hanging behind the bar, and a painting of a tiger. The (mostly rum) cocktails occasionally come in cat-shaped cups with big ass straws, and there's a plastic flamingo in the corner that someone will probably steal one day. Anyway, come here. It's fun, and it doesn't get too busy early in the evening.
