Zaphod Beeblebrox
Reviewed 13 March 2018

Even though this place closed down, it gave me and my friends some of the best memories during high school and uni. This is where you got to meet David Usher, Mother Mother, Jewel, Amos the Transparent, and other local bands.

After, everyone would head to Zak's or that food truck in between. Good times.

Zaphods has changed hands, but they still bring in the best live bands and play an eclectic mix at their 'Electric Ballroom' after 11. Security is vigilant but not overbearing or obtrusive, making this a drug-free and safe environment in particular for women and also for anyone society might think of as 'different'. There's a great mix of people here most nights of the week rubbing shoulders at the bar loudly but peaceably. Finally, a trip to this establishment is worth it if for any other reason than to consume the iconic Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster of which you are unlikely to have more than one...

I remember going when I was a student. I enjoy the vibe and alternative music there. I played the table top video arcade game and pinball too. It was more like a visit to memory lane for me, but surely it's a cool bar with an interesting crowd. Not the average pub.

Doormen and bouncers seem to be on power trips. They are very aggressive and intimidating even before you get in to the bar. Bar staff range from aloof and condescending at best to extremely rude at worst. Overall an unpleasant experience.

I'd heard about thus place many times and was very excited to go along with my friends. The outside looked in need of a fix but we went in anyway. A huge mistake, the inside was worse than the outside, the staff were unpleasant and rude, and in one case threatening, for no reason. Would not go again, a huge disappointment, should not be rated this highly.
