My Favorite bar

The Glen is my favorite bar in Jerusalem, it has an awesome collection of whiskeys from around the world, focusing mainly on single malts but not only, and uncommon beers. The staff and regulars create a fun, open & free atmosphere.

What a cool place Great atmosphere, great music, good people, a lot of joy and pleasure instead. For a moment we felt as we are in a traditional pub in Europe in terms of design and drinking .Definitely a place to return ~ <3

The glen is a great place to grab a drink because of their large selection of whiskeys as well as beers from around the world and boutique Israeli beers. Highly recommended if you are looking for a good drink of the beaten path or want to try something new.

Great atmosphere and music, good choice of beers and friendly staff. The location is pretty close to Jaffa Gate. We've... More

I've been going to the Glen now every week for around three years. The selection of alcohol available is simply unsurpassed by any other pub in Jerusalem. There're 17 beers on tap not to mention an extensive collection of bottled beers, close to 100 different whiskies to choose from, mainly Scottish single malts but also a few blends and American...
