Nowadays, Jerusalem is all about wine. So if you made it to the end of the day, you simply owe this final treat to yourself. One of Jerusalem’s best wine bars is the Red & White wine bar, which is located right at the entrance to Alrov Mamilla Avenue.

This dimly lit bar offers a quiet and intimate wine experience with high quality boutique wines and ambient music. They have an automatic wine dispenser for wine tastings in half glasses and even full glasses. If you feel like drinking something a bit stronger, the bar also has a great selection of premium single-malt whiskeys and gins. A perfect addition would be one of their great snacks, ranging from salmon appetizers to boutique chocolates.

Get your drink of choice and that’s it. End your indulging day by watching the city transform into gold while the sun sets around you.
