“A bar with a good vibe”
Reviewed 30 September 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”
Reviewed 15 July 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”
Reviewed 18 June 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!

“My favorite bar in Jerusalem”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

It's not easy to find a decent bar in Jerusalem. While many try to capture the special atmosphere in the city, Ha'Taklit is successful where most bars fail. Cool people, a big selection of alcohol and great service join together for special evenings 7 days a week. Look for the posters listing the current month's events - from indie gigs to big soccer matches' screenings. A real hidden jem in the holy city
