“I feel bad for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” ~ Frank Sinatra

Don't even get me started on the cocktails though. With a salad bar of fresh fruit, herbs, and house made garnishes and syrups they at their disposal, there truly isn't anything this spot can't serve up. And best of all, they're happy to tune up their recipes to suit your personal tastes. I find a lot of their drinks to be a bit sweet, so I always ask them to bring the heat, in the form of fantastic whiskey and bourbons of course, and they are more than happy to oblige.
But as a fan of the classic cocktails, and to set expectations straight for my friends out there like me, my one criticism is that they don't seem to have the same philosophy on rocks that a lot of the other cocktail bars have. I like my old fashioned on a rock, not over chip ice, so I tend to go for drinks served up. Z Bar is a cocktail bar for those that crave innovation and freshness. Find your new favorite on their menu, or let them create it for you!
