When it comes to food and drink, Galveston Island is second to none.  Galveston has recently welcomed  a new breed of chefs determined to turn the island into a hub for cutting-edge cuisine and signature cocktails.  If you’re looking for unforgettable food, lively libations and dynamic nightlife, look no further than ZaZa Bar & Bites, located in Historic Downtown Galveston!   

Specializing in signature martinis & cocktails, craft beers, hookah, and Indo Fusion edibles, ZaZa Bar & Bites makes every effort to create their drinks and dishes using the freshest, locally sourced produce and seafood using Indo Fusion spices that are imported from the Indian Subcontinent.   

Come and relax on their outdoor dining patio while listening to local musicians strumming their guitars, or step inside and browse their walls, covered in artwork from local artisans.   

More than a bar,  ZaZa Bar & Bites is an Indo Fusion Bistro that offers something for everyone.  Locally sourced edibles and drinks.  Locally crafted artwork.  And locally produced live music.
