Galveston’s 70-block historic downtown is a veritable treasure chest of culture, historical landmarks, museums, art galleries, theaters, and chic eateries and bars. 

Located on Postoffice Street in downtown Galveston is ZaZa Bar & Bites.  Specializing in signature martinis & cocktails, craft beers, hookah, and edibles, ZaZa Bar & Bites is an Indo Fusion Bistro that offers something for everyone.  They make 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. 

While visiting Galveston’s Historic Arts & Entertainment District, make sure you stop by ZaZa Bar & Bites 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.
