Zydeco is a bar, restaurant, and concert venue at 2001 15th Avenue South in the 1909 Phoenix Club building in Five Points South.

Zydeco was opened on the bottom floor of the building in 1989. The "pub" area is currently used as the venue's restaurant, which features a New Orleans-style menu. A mid-level outside patio area is used for live music and outdoor dining. The top floor was converted into a concert venue in the 1990s and hosts regional and national touring acts.

In 2003, Zydeco was acquired by Josh Billue, a former Georgia football player from Guntersville. Billue's company, Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler, Inc. also owns Nashville's iconic Exit/In.
