The pub is located in South Tel Aviv, and it has a very nice ambient. The beer selection is impressive and the waitresses are really kind. My only suggestion is to add some appetizers or french fries to the menu.

Probably one of the first temples of beer, even more known for the whiskey, though I'm not a fan. Always busy, and crowded. However the amazing selection, surprisingly good food and better clientele (than you'd find in other pubs in the area) will make you want to come back with a reservation.

A very nice pub with a limited selection of food, but an outstanding selection of beers and whiskey. The menu is limited but the hamburgers are very good. I had a special, shrimp jambalaya, which was unlike any I have ever eaten (not in a sauce and shrimp were breaded and fried) but it was good. Their beer selection is outstanding. Many in our group had Belgian beers. Having recently visited Belgium, and wanting to experience the Israeli beers, I went with the Negev brewery beers. The Negev Amber was the best beer I had in Israel. Nice color, smooth, and I could drink it all night. I'm not one normally for flavored beers, but on a suggestion I tried the Negev Passion Fruit beer, and it was very nice. Not too fruity or sweet, with a nice body and finish.

Service was a little slow, but we had a good-sized group (10) and it seems to stay busy. With it being so busy, they do not need to keep the music so loud, as you cannot hear others talk, and the brick walls, wood floor, and narrow room made it worse. All in all, a good experience and I will definitely be back--for the Negev beer and burger!

A great place, full of plenty kinds of beer from all over the world. Service is being given every time you just look up from your dish. Dished are excellent and the barman was great- when sitting on the bar gave us something to try which he made himself (some king of whisky). MUST book a place before or you might wait more than an hour outside.

Experienced and knowledgeable service, amazing selection of beers (with quite a few locals as well), and quite a nice variety of whiskys. The food is classic "pub food" but excellent.

Make sure to call in advance for reservations - it can get quite full, especially on weekends.
Great atmosphere for a night out (free parking too!).
