Behold, the zebra goodness of the coming Purple Zebra, opening at The Linq Dec. 27. Yes, those are zebra legs poking out of the ceiling. Of course, those are zebra legs that make up the legs of tables.
This $2.1 million, 4,400-square-foot daiquiri bar plans to self-serve 30 different slush flavors with a whopping 38 novelty vessels, one of which just has to be a zebra. Some of these concoctions will be kid-friendly at zero proof; the remainder will be brimming alcohol. The space has room for 96 guests.

Candy also makes an appearance here in the form of retro faves and 25-pound gummy snakes. The combination will give riders of the High Roller, the highest observation wheel in the world, a sugar high while they're on the hour-long ride when it opens this spring.
Purple Zebra gets its name from F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1920 novel This Side of Paradise, which features a daiquiri drunk character surprised to witness a "purple zebra."
Purple Zebra is one of five outlets opening at the $550 million The Linq next week. Others include O'Shea's, Chayo Mexicano, Starbucks and Haute Doggery.
