    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      As one of Shanghai's most popular bars, Zapata's holds court over the entire Hengshan Lu nightlife scene from their outdoor terrace and multiple venue complex. Usually packed any given night of the week, especially their Wednesday ladies night, crowds groove to commercial rock, pop, and hip-hop hits while bartenders pour tequila shots into the mouths of anyone willing to dance on top of the bar. A Tex-Mex menu in its upstairs Hacienda restaurant rounds out the bar's theme.

    Halloween party.
    We came with some frienda, we are used to come a lot.
    We put our coats at the dressroom, to be more comfortable.
    They give us one bracelet with one number for 2 coats, but ask us to pay twice....
    When we come back to pick our clothes, nothing, someone took it, and no one was able to tell us what happened.
    Our passeport and credit card was one the coat.
    I had a business trip abroad i couldn't go because of it.
    No one took responsibilities, no one took our telephone number in case they find something, they just asked us to calm down because they couldn't do anything, they just "rent" the place.

    We used to like zapatas, not anymore...

    The Tues night buffet special is good for the price of 88RMB. If I got the same quality tacos , 3 for 65RMB, not worth it at all. Like I said, buffet..so you can eat 2, 4, 5, 8 or whatever you want.

    The all you can drink margaritas for extra 50RMB were fast coming after several valid attempts to get the waiters attention. The waiters were terrible at bussing the table. I literally took my own dirty dishes off and put them on another clean table several times and the waiters quickly removed them, but never bothered to buss my table. Even though they came to my table several times to bring more Margaritas. I told the manager and he apologized and gave my table around of shots. I would recommend it for cheap drinks and good price Tues night taco buffet. But as far as good service and high quality food, not the best place to go.
    Ok for music and drinks not for food nor service

    If your looking for a bar with an area to dance, and drinks that are medicore, that wont break the bank this is an ok place to go to.
    A good amount of people, plenty of expats, the crowd tends to be older mid 20's at least and up mainly 30's.
    All the times that i went the music was good and farily variable from top mixs in english and spanish
    Though the staff is rude and you get pushed along the way rather than attend to, wether your order food or drinks even asking them something is as though it is painfull to them and not based on a language barrier.
    The owner was there the few times ive gone who speaks good english if the staff is unwilling to assits though he too is rather unhelpful.
    I would definetly not recommend the chili cheese fries as there is close to no cheese on them, even went as far as to ask for extra cheese and though i asked several times for it once the order had arrived, even assured id be willing to pay extra for it. They said no blatantly, 3 waitstaff and the owner where asked, one waitstaff went as far as to tell they had no cheese which begs the question why they would offer chili cheese fries when they have no cheese others pointed out that there where specks of cheese there, that could have been rivaled by speaks of dust in size. And the amount of chili is stingly small to say the least. Their burritos and tacos are ok though nothing near authentic, think american half attempted at Mexican Food. The quesadillas are even less authentic, but if your looking to not die of starvation nor food that looks to far fetched the food there will fill that. Overall wouldn't recommend the place, unless you are on the brink of dieing from boredom or starvation.
