Gatsby brings a taste of the Roaring 20’s to Jerusalem.
Growing up in London, my favorite bars to visit were those housed in old basement casinos or cabaret clubs. The entrance was always on a small dark street, away from the main thoroughfare, and only as you descended the staircase into the underworld of London, did the magic reveal itself.
Although the entrance to Gatsby Cocktail Room does not include a grand staircase descending into the depths of Jerusalem’s nightlife, the talented owners and interior designers have managed to create an entrance that evokes a similar magic and takes you back in time to the days of speakeasies and cabaret. As the name suggests, this is a 1920’s themed cocktail bar and lounge, where the bar staff making the cocktails is as much part of the fun as the drinking is. They do have other drinks on the menu, but the main attraction is the impressive selection of imaginative cocktails.
