Sighting of the duke – On certain nights if you're lucky you just might catch a man known as the fierce Mr. Raul Duke drunk off fruity girly drinks flamingo dancing to the musical stylings of InXS. After numerous zombies watch as he jives up to numerous women smelling each ones hair then tells anyone close enough that he could take any woman in the bar to get chicken parm them feel them up on the pier. Watch closely when he whips out his bill fold and you just might glimpse his treasured picture of a shirtless Hugh Jackman loving pressed into his wallet. This might be the only chance to see his wallet as he will always tell you he has no cash as the bill comes. The man known as The Duke is a tight fisted man. As the night winds down he will exclaim in a slurred raspy voice his overwhelming desire for pregnant woman he would marry if only a few years older. (Sorry to get off topic but the bar does have good drinks and a nice staff.)
nothing tiki about it – decent drinks and yes the girls behind the bar are cute (attracting a largely frat-boy crowd if that's your thing) but the decor is so seriously non-authentic they should just re-do the place as something entirely different. Try Wakiki Wally's (glitzy) or Otto's Shrunken Head (divey) in the East Village for more authentic parphernalia. Otherwise there are way better establishments more deserving of your money in the area (Brooklyn Social for the cocktails and old-school glamour, Boat for the jukebox, Magnetic Field for the live music, etc., etc.)
Tiki bar with nasty bartenders – The owner is a real piece of tool. Forget about a buyback. The drinks are pretty gross and so is the crowd. If you sit in the yard during the summer youll probably get plummitted with eggs. The owner doesnt care either.
Tiki bar brings the heat and sweetness of the tropics to Smith Street. – The Scene
A tribal mask greets you at the front door, a thatched roof and bamboo adornments decorate the bar and a vibraphone player finishes off the more-ironic-than-exotic tropical ambience. With an appropriately kitschy touch, Zombie Hut brings the "The Brady Bunch"-in-Hawaii to Brooklyn's burgeoning restaurant row.
Drinks decked out with umbrellas and plastic monkeys lure a mixed crowd to this lounge. The Frozen Zombie is an innocent-looking pink slushy drink made with two rums, pineapple and orange juice, but beware the first sip--a secret ingredient, possibly Bacardi 151, is shot directly into the straw. The Singapore Sling is a top choice for gin drinkers, and hula buddies can share a Scorpion Bowl, which comes aflame in a ceramic basin with two straws.
Proo22 must have been at Broome Doggs! – You HAVE to come to "The Hut" and enjoy everything they have to offer. The most fun is watching the new patrons drink their first zombie- when everyone but them knows what the surprise is. The staff is fun and sexy, and even though there is no dance floor, after a few drinks EVERYBODY is shaking their booty just a little bit more! 17 out of 18 reviews got it just right.
A tiki bar you shouldn't be afraid of. – I'm used to those midtown fratty tiki bars that are filled with obnoxious high fivers and loud women huddled around a flaming bowl of booze waiting to get picked up by aforementioned meatheads. This is not that place. Maybe it's because of it's location in Brooklyn, but Zombie Hut are filled with sweet regulars and witty staff, which makes it a great option after work or on weeknights to say, a regular beer bar. Mai Tais and Frozen Zombies are so good, and sometimes necessary. I like taking my friends from out of town here. Maybe the weekend are nuts, I dunno, I stick to the weeknight ritual myself.
Avoid at all costs! – Loud frathouse-style bar. You will be annoyed by the selection of jarheaded clientele. Poor service and supervision. Why go here? Avoid.
it doesn't get better than the hut!! – I love this place! No matter what time of night I show up ,there is a friendly face and good conversation waiting for me. The bartenders show me and my lady much love and always pour a mean drink. Kim makes the best martinis in Brooklyn! Rock on Zombies!
Zombie – I love this place! Whether you actually are a regular at this bar or not, you'll feel like one by the time your night is done. Stopped by for a few drinks on a Monday and there was a pretty decent crowd. Kim the bartender was great! She made some solid drinks, and kept the place pretty lively. She also made sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. Just watch out for the goldfish snacks that are left on the bar. Before you know it, an entire bowl could be gone.
Zombie Hut should be called Zombie Hot! – The hottest bartenders I've ever seen anywhere. I kid you not. Guys, GO! You won't regret it. Fun fire-breathing modelesque exotic beautiful women. Girls, GO! You wpn't regret it either. Bartenders are also NICE and super friendly and the bar is packed with guys. The drinks rock!
