"Where the freaks come to play..." Byward Market Tip by Canadian_girl
Byward Market, Ottawa: 29 reviews and 18 photos
Zaphod's is probably the coolest place in Ottawa, and one of my all-time favourites. They have a wide variety of *extremely* interesting live music acts (including some really good ones) and theme nights. My personal favourite is Tuesdays, which as I recall is "Industrial Goth" night, or something like that. Don't expect to hear much top 40 music, but DO expect to have a really great time. And try the Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster - which is yummy, and tends to glow under the black lights (see below).
Dress Code: The more bizarre and elaborate the better. That's the best thing about this place: EVERYONE is accepted. You could show up in a paper bag or a business suit and no one would give you a second glance. But if you're going to wear dark colours, make sure you don't have any fuzzies on your clothes -- the place is full of black lights.
Address: 27 York St.
Directions: In the Byward Market, just east of Sussex Dr.
