Z's at the Curry is an upscale bar located in the heart of downtown Waco in the historic Curry building.
A WACO LANDMARK
Z’s at the Curry is located on 6th and Washington in the historic downtown district of Waco. Just blocks from the Magnolia Silos, the Curry building is positioned to enjoy glamorous views of the Courthouse and of the ALICO building.
Z’s at the Curry owes its name to the historic roots of the building. Originally built and owned by H.S. “Ted” Curry in 1946, the building once served as a supply depot for the people of Waco. In 1953, the building survived the devastating tornado that tore though the heart of downtown, leveling many of the buildings on either side of the Curry building. Then again, in 1980, the Curry building survived two large fires. Since 1946, the building has been a supply depot, a family home, an apartment to newlyweds, and now, the upscale bar that you see today.
Today, the building stands proud in the heart of downtown. Tastefully renovated, as much of the building’s original features have been preserved as possible. A new roof has been seamlessly blended with the original architecture, while the exposed red bricks remain true to the original form.
For a cultivated taste of Waco’s historic downtown and a more refined experience, come sample our finely crafted cocktails, our expansive wine menu, and our ice cold beers.
At Z’s at the Curry we offer an elevated menu of craft cocktails, specialty wines, and beer. Have any questions? Our experienced bartender, Ray, is happy to educate and entertain.

FROM THE SALOON TO THE CURRY
Made from solid Mahogany, our bar has a rich history to match the Curry building. Originally, drinks were served over this bar in a saloon and boarding house. Guests staying at the boarding house would wander over to the bar after supper to enjoy an old fashioned after a long, difficult day. Here at Z’s, we are keeping that tradition alive, so come over and check out the bar and try one of our delicious Old Fashioned cocktails.
Awesome little upscale wine bar with great views from the patio and a classy atmosphere inside. The wine list is rather large and gives you the chance to try a lot of different tasty options, and the service was friendly and helpful in determining a wine that fit my tastes. Overall I would recommend stopping by Z's, ordering a tasty glass of wine, sitting out on the patio with someone you care about, and enjoying a great night!
Absolutely beautiful place! Beautiful decor and yummy cocktails. Great wine list. Great place to hang out in downtown Waco!
We love this place! No pictures do justice to this AMAZING PLACE. You have to come here in person and experience it. Everything is top notch quality!!! I highly recommend this place.
This place is awesome.......Its about time Waco got an upscale bar like this. The atmosphere is top notch. Check out the specialty drinks along with the great drink specials. The food is great also. You will be impressed!
This is my absolute favorite place for wine and drinks in Waco. The owners obviously spared no expense to create a new and exciting experience for Waco. The atmosphere and design are top notch and what I typically only find in a larger city. I specifically like taking my wife for a date, clients for business conversation, and family when they are in town. Highly recommend!
If you are looking to have a classy time with the absolute hands down best view in town than this is the place. They have some interesting drinks so you can find something you like. service was good. honestly though what caught my attention was the view and overall atmosphere of the bar. you can relax and unwind while enjoying a cocktail.. or in my case a whiskey neat... and literally look over the downtown area. I would strongly recommend giving this place a chance
Hidden gem in downtown Waco with a laid back, old timey vibe, and great views of the Alico. Great drinks and great service.
Wow. What an incredible bar. Beautiful decor, relaxed environment & well worth a stop in. I had the judge Bourbon flight, and it was exceptional. I'll be back soon
Very nice place and loved the service! Will go back soon.
Just what Waco needs! A beautiful, upscale bar to escape to after a long day at work. Suzanna and Greg are wonderful and welcoming hosts. I look forward to my weekly visits!
