Phoenix New Times' Description
To say that this CenPho showclub and gay vaquero bar is colorful would be an understatement. A lively variety of neon lights and multicolored decorations mix with a vibrant vibe and diverse clientele that visit Zarape on a nightly basis. Its female illusionist revues blend sass, style, music, and comedy into playful drag spectaculars featuring hits from such popular Latina divas as Shakira and Gloria Trevi being lip-synched by local drag artists, who also add plenty of wit, charm, and well-timed raunch into their trills. But when the revues end and the spotlight dims, these colorful characters don't vacate the premises. They're just as apt to hang out and interact with the cowboy-booted caballeros that stop by Zarape to spend the evening dancing to salsa, cumbia, banda and norteño music.
Tips from foursquare
don't have to be gay, everyone goes.. fun place to be
Haven't been in a long time. But last night was fun. Great music to dance to. Sunday nights are good here.
$2 well drinks before 11?! Yes please!
One of the best spots in Phoenix. Great music (at least on Top 40 nights), cheap drinks (can't beat $6 for Ketel One), and a lighting/sound system that could compete with New York and Vegas clubs.
