My wife and I came here for an afternoon chilling and I must say this is the place that you should definitely visit here to taste Jerusalem. Dan is a great bartendar and you may rely on his suggestions for your cocktails.

Probably the best bar in Jerusalem. Unfortunately (for some) you have to be 23 to enter so it is limiting for some but it’s worth the wait! It’s good to make a reservation because it can get crowded. Happy hour is 6-7:30 and you get...More
