The ZnII atom in the title compound, [ZnCl2(C 14H13N3)], is coordinated by a Cl 2N2 donor set defined by quinoline and pyrazole N atoms of the chelating ligand and two Cl atoms. Distortions from the ideal tetra-hedral geometry relate to the restricted bite angle of the chelating ligand [N-Zn-N = 78.54 (12)°]. In the crystal, molecules are connected into a three-dimensional structure by C-H⋯Cl inter-actions, involving both Cl atoms, and π-π inter-actions that occur between the pyrazole ring and each of the pyridine and benzene rings of the quinoline residue [inter-centroid distances = 3.655 (2) and 3.676 (2) Å].
