Can you play backgammon?
The Wild Cat is a new concept bar located at Nachalat Shiv’a neighborhood in the center of Jerusalem. This modern and shiny bar is inspired by the long tradition of market hmaras. The Hmara is a place where people go to drink alcohol, play backgammon, and have a good laugh. The Wild Cat is taking this street concept and brings a new, 2017, upgraded version of the old Jerusalem tradition of drinking, playing and having fun. The crazy cat sign at the entrance, the intimacy of the place, the quantities of the alcohol, and the backgammon boards – everything about this place is the old and authentic Jerusalem meets the new and modern nightlife scene.
There’s Always Something Going On
Every Thursday, the Wild Cat Bar has themed parties. There have been toga parties, cat parties and even a Hawaiian party. Wednesday nights are poker nights with poker tournaments in association with the IPC – Israel Poker Community. On Tuesdays the bar usually shows animation movies on a huge screen. They also stream live sports games by the season. All of this is accompanied by a fully stocked alcohol bar with whiskey, vodka, different liqueurs, wine, and a crazy shots department. There are 4 draft beers including the rare Maccabee 7.9% and the brand new Goldstar Slowbrew. The snacks menu includes hot pizzas coming straight from a Tabun oven, pretzels (with or without chocolate), and all sorts of other great snacks and side dishes to enjoy your drinks with.
