Enlivened by the sounds of DJs, live comedy, and MCs, the interior of Zanzibar Houston buzzes on a nightly basis. The kitchen churns out an array of finger foods, including suya, a type of shish kebab, until midnight. Buzzing bass beats punctuate the clatter of players breaking racks of billiards balls amid zebra-print chairs and low leather couches. Ice jingles at the full bar with the sound of two xylophonists getting in a fender bender, and a projection screen blossoms colorfully, drawing eyes away from the bustling dance floor.
