“It's not a bar, it's a home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name. So when I get this feeling, or when I wanna party, when I wanna sit for a drink and a talk with a friend, or when I wanna watch football.. basically at any and all times - I go to The Record.

The atmosphere is always pleasant and laid back, the bartenders some of the friendliest and coolest people I ever met and the costumers just as much. The place is frequently visited by tourists and expats, as well as students and Jerusalem-born locals. Avi, the owner, is usually there to welcome everyone he knows with a hug and a joke about their favorite football club. And even if you don't know him, a quick hello and he'd make you feel comfortable as if he'd

It's this without a question the best pub in Jerusalem, it really embodies the atmosphere of this city and adds to its charm. The prices are fair, and the menu is decorated with cats. So who needs more?

“A great local pub with a great music!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Great place for a drink after the day long discoveries of the Old City. 10-15 min walk from the Jaffa gate and right next too Jaffa road. Good beer and very nice classic / light rock music. Outside table are great for people watching though December is a bit cold for that which still didn't prevent the locals from doing so.
Very recommended! Great spot for a beer!

“A bar with a good vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

One of the few cool bars in jerusalem , not a tourist trap, not a pretentious place, just honest with a diverse selection of patrons.

“The best bar in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Located in the heart of Jerusalem, Ha'Taklit is the finest bar that I've been to in Jerusalem, and one of the best that I've been to all over the world. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the music is excellent and the design is intimate, yet inviting and warm. The bar is opening early every day, and their prices are reasonable.

“A pillar of Jerusalem's nightlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

HaTaklit (lit. the Record/Album) and its sister bar Cassetta are a great nightlife location in the heart of Western Jerusalem. Hataklit is a mix between a bar and pub with an alternative, young feel. Everyone will feel welcome here. Whether inside at one of the tables or at the bar, or outside at one of the many tables that stretch around the corner. The Cassetta is pretty much just a small room and a bar attached to the HaTaklit and can be reached either through HaTaklit or by a separate entrance (look a the door plastered with old audio tapes). As in most Israeli bars you find a variety of draft beers and food is also available. Music can range from indie rock to European 90ties pop music. Definitely a fun place to go, open all nights and great and friendly staff!
