People with pizzazz are glamorous and fun to be with; they have that certain something that attracts others to them.

Inanimate objects can also have pizzazz, like a school gymnasium that's been decorated for a dance or a website that's redesigned to be more flashy and exciting. Pizzazz began in the 1930s as a slang term, and it's still considered an informal way of describing excitement or zest.
