Frankly, there isn't much to do in Old City after it gets dark, so if you want to go for a beer or two, you need to get out of it and a truly great place for that is "Glen"! 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...

Glen Bar is like a second home to me - Glen is located in Jerusalem (ISRAEL) - 2 minute walk from the Western Wall and the Old City of Jerusalem and the atmosphere there is always warm and inviting. Leon, the owner of the Glen Bar has extensive knowledge in all types of whiskey and beer. Conversation with him about... More

I live in Tel Aviv, but I love bar crawls in Jerusalem. Unlike TA, J'm has its better establishments concentrated in a small area, so one can move easily from a place to a place regardless of how low is the blood level in his or her alcohol. During the last year, since I've discovered Glen, it is an obligatrory... More

A good bar to sit with friends, very friendly staff, best selection of whiskey I saw in Jerusalem. The music tends to be classic rock with occasional heavier stuff.
