Perhaps you'll graciously overlook the overly tacky interior of Zen Lounge, which still manages to fail at covering up an obviously ghetto arena. Even if the decor doesn't put you off, the people inside definitely will. If your sole goal is to make fun of sleazy douchebags of all nationalities, then you may find Zen Lounge to be pretty amusing. This place used to be called Buddha Lounge, but they changed the name because I'm sure even Buddha couldn't muster up enough nirvana to tolerate these douchebags.
If you're a guy looking to get find some hot, young girls at Zen Lounge, then you'll be in for a rude awakening. Much of the dance floor is filled with 50-year-old cougars of all nationalities, ready to dig their fake nails into the first young Silicon Valley millionaire they see.
If you're a woman and you spend just 10 minutes on the Zen Lounge dance floor, I have a $100 bill here that says that you will be grinded on, pounced upon, and/or ass-slapped by a hairy man wearing white slacks and gator shoes.

Pluses: Big dance floor, creatively placed bar and private rooms upstairs for groups. People you can tell here are clearly more drunk than usual, given that there are folks who dance on tables and what not.
Negatives: None really, other than the fact that people here seem to easily drop and spill their drinks.

Not a bad club given the lack of options in Mountain View downtown. Music was not bad although the crowd could be a bit boring. A little quiet on the weekend.
Service is not the best. No one checked on us or refilled any mixer for our bottle service. The dance floor is decent size and not cramped. Lots of room to walk around and chill. Bathroom is surprisingly clean.
Not a bad place to club but only if you must stay in Mountain View area.

its small, they put mirrors everywhere to make it seem bigger.
kind of awkward to put a projector and screen right there where the dancefloor is.
things got ugly when it started to get crowded. nowhere to stand without getting bumped into.
will not come back.

Happy Belated Birthday Mikey.... good times!!!
shout outs to our alright server and to the big burly bouncer guy that kept cheetah girl out of our spot. as for the rest of the decor.... a lil over cliched neo asian motif going on but it's called zen lounge after all.
don't go to the front bar if you want good drinks....
and don't go to the bathroom.... you have a better chance of running across the street.
as for the music.... meh... and as for the crowd... who knew there was a Mt. View crowd?
