SquareMeal Review of
City Zebrano Bar
Done out like some prehistoric pit under lurid zigzag lights, this basement behemoth could be Fred and Wilma Flintstone’s local disco, or (better still) their offspring Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm's playpen: Zebrano's core customers tend to be young – or, at least, young at heart. Party anthems, crowd-pleasing bar bites and fairly priced alco-fixes are the bedrock of a winning formula both here and at the bar's two similarly high-spirited Soho sisters. Get in line for a herby Mojito, fruity Caipirinha or a Bombay Sapphire Martini flavoured with mint and basil, or go for a something sweet – perhaps Apple Strudel, a vodka-laced liquid pud fit for sugar plum fairies. Also check out a brandy, orange and apricot cooler entitled Thursday is the New Friday – although, in the City, that's an understatement as carefree stop-outs sink shooters, drop bombs and boogie until midnight.
