When I have friends or family visiting me in London I always want to show them a good time and why this city is a great place to live. My sister was staying for the weekend so we needed a Friday night central hot spot to kick start the party.
Zebrano Soho seemed the perfect place since I’ve always walked by and found myself loving the music playing, plus they were offering free-flowing pizza & prosecco for 1.5 hours. Done deal.
We were met by the lovely host who whisked us over to a cute corner table and explained how the deal worked. It seemed too good to be true. Our prosecco glasses were filled and we began chatting, drinking and looking over the lush pizza menu.
We had a great people watching spot, where everyone who came through the door looked cool and ready to party the night away.
From the great pizza selection my sister opted for the vegetable supreme and since I love a meat option I went for the diavola. Both were huge and took up most of the table.
The vegetable Supreme was topped with chunky artichoke hearts, peppers and grilled aubergine topped with the perfect amount of stringy cheese.
My diavola was also smothered with melted mozzarella which had the best smell as it was whisked over. The other toppings literally covered the base; Spicy pepperoni and mixed chillies added a great kick. I was in heaven. The sliced pepperoni was so thick and juicy with the oil running into the crusts.
As soon as the prosecco was dry it was promptly topped up. The place was really starting to fill up and to our delight the music crept up so we didn’t feel so silly dancing in our seats.
Patrick the super friendly manager popped over to make sure we were enjoying our night and offered a quick tour of the other hidden parts. We headed upstairs to the private snug where they had a private bar and pull down super-sized screen. All I thought was how great it would be to have a birthday party there with cosy booths and your own music playing. There was also a basement speakeasy style bar, low lit and with lots of comfy seating.
With happy hour every day 5-8pm it seemed only right we tested one of our favourite cocktails – the porn star martini. The bartender showed us his skills and made us the most delicious lip-smacking drink. Although we had the option of more pizza we simply couldn’t manage any more since we cleared every crumb, so we decided to hang at the bar and stick around for more cocktails.
We had a really fun night at Zebrano, it was a great way to start our evening. The team were attentive and friendly while the pizza and prosecco hit the spot – just what we were looking for. I’d definitely recommend it and look forward to returning with my friends on our next girls’ night out.
