Yonatan Gruber was born in the USA but he has been living in Jerusalem most of his life. He has been working in the restaurant and bar business since he was 19 and was totally thrilled to join the post hostel team: “After meeting the owners for the first time i realized we share the same excitement for hosting and serving people. I was moved by their motivation and their agenda. I immediately decided to join the team”.
Yonatan in one of the consultants and advisors of the bar and he has been working with his team of designers and bartender for months, “My vision for the bar is to have business people sitting together with backpackers and enjoying their drinks regardless of national, religious or racial differences. The bar will be very high quality and fine, but will also stay affordable in order for everyone to be able to enjoy it.”
Together with the owners of the hostel Yonatan sees the bar as an opportunity to be the kind of Israeli experience he hopes the guests will meet everywhere they go while visiting Israel. “Traveling can be a hassle” Yonatan explains “From a rough flight to a cheating taxi driver. The bar will represent the true hospitality of Israeli culture together with a cosmopolitan vibe and standard”.
The bar will serve some of the best cocktails in the city together with locally brewed beers. The wine collection is large and impressive and there are whiskeys, vodkas and rum from around the globe. “We want every guest to have the choice of ordering a drink he recognizes from home and having the option to taste some of our local wonders” Yonatan adds.
It is important to note that the bar is not only for guests of the hostel, “We think it is important to have such a place like this as part of the night life scene of the city. Our location is different and exotic and is a little hard to find, which adds some mystery to the place i am sure Israelis will appreciate. We are striving for the best service and the highest knowledge of the staff and together with our great drinks and design our bar won’t be like any other”.
The bar is officially launching Thursday night December 3rd, We will be serving the best drink in town and pairing it with best food to match. Hope to see you all there!
