ZooBar is located really close to Vile Parle station right above McDonald’s. It features in Zomato’s list of Happy Hours places because of some great offers to grab from.
Visited Zoobar over the weekend. We were greeted by some animal paintings and a huge giraffe on our way up.Pretty chilled out atmosphere. You get one plus one on every drink and mocktail before 8pm. The crowd starts building up later in the night. There are two sections AC and an open air one.The service is good and prompt, although it gets a little slow once the crowd builds up.
From the Mocktails, we ordered Virgin Guava Mary and Mix Bang Bang from mocktails.
Mix Bang Bang : Ever Had a mocktail that is a mix of a few fruit juices and is spicy? Yup, this one manages to leave a tingling sensation on one’s lips with the overload of pepper. But I am not complaining. A spicy, tangy mocktail is always preferred over any sweet drink! Give this a try if you are not one to shy away from a little experiment. I had two of these, ‘coz one plus one happy hour!!
We ordered Loaded Nachos which were really loaded with cheese, delicious sauces and veggies. Loved these. Perfect to binge on while you gossip your time away with your friends.
The Classic Cheese Garlic Bread was a major disappointment. Although it did not lack in the amount of cheese, it lacked in the softness needed. The cheese was chewy and the bread was toasted too much!
We also ordered the Zoobar Elephant Sandwich. The servers brought the sandwich to our table in a cage sort of dish… grabbing eyeballs and making us wonder how the hell are we to eat that!!
When they said elephant, they meant a giant elephant! The sandwich is huge and it was really difficult to take a bite. It was filled with pesto sauce and cream cheese sauce mixed with veggies like mushroom, zucchini, etc and a salad dressing on the sides and potato wedges. It was delicious with the creaminess of the pesto sauce making us lick our fingers!
My two cents: Go here a bit early as the AC section gets packed too soon unless you don’t mind the open air section which allows smoking. Also, the earlier you go, the longer you enjoy the happy hour offers!
Zoobar, I am coming back for more!
