Putin Bar, is the main hangout for Jerusalem’s Russian community, which includes several thousands of immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Happy hour deal gives you a best value of chilled draft beer, Try the dry salted fish snack that goes well with beer.

There was absolutely no local beer to try, and their idea of fish and chips is mediocre fries with overcooked fish sticks on top. Hard to believe this actually took them over an hour to make.

Summary This pub has been our favorite for ages, almost as soon as they opened in their present location. The bar boasts good beer (properly poured!), nice snacks and fantastic homemade pickles. The atmosphere is very nice, and the bill is very reasonable. Will be coming back as long as we have a free evening and they're there. In detail:... More

Found Putin's while looking for another place to eat. Bartender was awesome and helped me decide on what to eat by using Wikipedia. I had the meat dumplings with mayonnaise and weak vinegar. Bartender gave us shots of Scotch to have before our meal. Fellow came in who grew up in Soviet union, but now lives in Denver, CO.

Putin bar is one of the places where secular people, mostly Russian but also many internationals posted in Jerusalem, go to fisnish the night on week-ends. The Russian food is not bad, but the main interest of the place is its bar where you can drink and dance till the wee hours.

Located near Jaffo gate to Old Jerusalem, it attracts only by its name. The bar is inside 100-year old building and has a good athmosphere. Default language here is russian, but of course barmen knows english and ivrit as well. When I was, barmen was an immigrant from Kiev, Ukraine. They have a good choice of russian and ukrainian cusine,... More
