Honestly, probably the best bar in jerusalem. Went in there for a drink while waiting for a friend, the week Glen opened and havent left there since. Its about the only bar i go to anymore.

Owner and staff are amazing, like a second family to their customers, services is great, quick, and friendly. Prices are great. Music is awesome. The variety of whiskey and beers are countless.


If you are looking for a great night with friends, your loved one, parties, or even alone, this is the bar to go to. If you dont believe me or any other posts, then go check it out yourself and LIVE THE GLEN!!!

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 whiskeys as well as some more unusual choices. Of course there is also a wide range of other drinks available, for those who like cocktails they will happily customise one to your tastes.

You also cannot fault the quality of service, it's friendly, fast and efficient. The staff are all highly trained and can easily provide you with in-depth descriptions of all the drinks on offer. Give them a quick description of your tastes and they'll happily recommend you new drinks to try (and in my experience invariably get it right).

If you're looking for a place to sit, chat and have a few (or many) drinks then this is the only place to go in Jerusalem. The atmosphere is always lively, the music not too loud, the pub is full of people who are passionate about drinks and will happily sit and have a chat with you about almost anything under the sun.

Don't miss out on this place when visiting Jerusalem, it'll be welcome break from walking round site seeing in the heat!

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 alcohol and beverages will interest even those who does not drink often.

The Bar is small and intimate and has less than one hundred seats, so you will always get personal attention from the bartenders who work there.

This is defenantly the first Bar i'm going to reccomand any turist and friends who'll come to visit Israel.
