Zaphod Beeblebrox is nothing short of an iconic establishment in the Ottawa music scene. They've been up and running for over 20 years now and for those two decades they have been an intimate venue for visitors to enjoy life music, good company and good drinks. They're also home to some of the most deliciously eclectic cocktails that you could ever think of, such as their world renowned Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. You'd be hard pressed to find something that's even remotely similar to the phenomenal concoctions the geniuses at Zaphod's come up with.
Zaphod Beeblebrox has a slogan of "Heard before the Herd." and it's true. In fact, they have been home to several performances by artists who are now world famous, and that's just one of the countless reasons why the nightclub is dear and near to so many people's hearts. Some of the now very well known artists who once played at Zaphod Beeblbrox are:
and Yo La Tengo
They also had The Rolling Stones film a video in their club back in 2005, now how many places can say that?
But their ever extensive roster does not end there, oh no. They have had countless other artists coming in and out of their doors, more than I'm able to list in fact. But here are just a few:
Broken Social Scene
Corrosion of Conformity
The Sam Roberts Band
Southern Culture on the Skids
Joel Plaskett Emergency
Mighty Mighty Bosstones
And so, so many others it's almost impossible to keep track!
