The Minzar – or The Monastery – is Tel Aviv’s most local of local bars. Legend has it this pub never really closes and serves its regulars even during Yom Kippur, when everything in Israel grinds to a halt and all shops shut their doors. Located in a small side street off Allenby, The Minzar is almost invisible to the untrained eye, but don’t let its shabby look fool you – only the freshest ales are on offer here. During the evenings and weekends, it rustles up the best bar food in Tel Aviv, putting many fancy restaurants to shame. There’s even a great malabi store next door, which can deliver the creamy, milk-based dessert directly to your table.
