Like the namesake bug-eyed Spanish cartoon characters who adorn the walls, the atmosphere pervading Zipi Zape is lighthearted: Prices are low, delicious tapas are presented without pomp or fussiness, and, thanks in part to a small but satisfying wine list that includes plenty of Cavas and Riojas, everyone seems to be in a jovial, festive mood at all times. With its clubby, almost communal seating, the narrow anteroom adjoining the barroom amounts to a party where the hostess keeps replenishing her guests’ glasses and bringing them bowls of patatas bravas. The décor is unobtrusive: Tile and sunny yellow paint give the bar a welcoming hominess, and the lighting is kept low and romantic so that couples in the corner can feed each other pieces of spicy, wine-soaked fruit from the bottoms of their sangria glasses.
