There is no other place like Zulu in Pelourinho and we are very proud of this fact.We offer vegetarian and international food as well as the typical Bahian dishes that everyone wants to try along with one of a kind cocktails and refreshing juices. We take after hip places around the world and understand the value in costumer service, comfortable ambiance and fun crowds. Come here to watch sports TV, use our wi-fi or find out interesting tourist information while enjoying a delicious Caipirinha. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze or sit inside and jam to the music, your choice!
