The thing about the Barbunia is that for most people and especially the tourists, its the big simple restaurant that serves great salads and fresh fish, but this post is about the Barbunia Bar, on the other side of the road….
Yes it smells like hash!
The Barbunia Bar is one of those spots in the city that has a free spirit, and you won’t see people getting tickets because of smoking cigarettes, (yes we have that in Tel-Aviv as well :-() and you can even see a 54 year old dude rolling a joint with a few 23 years old waitresses..
If you have a problem with tight places filled with loud drunk people that are looking for someone to roll a joint with, then stick to the restaurant. However, if you wanna get a taste of the old Tel-Aviv, The bar is just for you!
A few days ago we celebrated a birthday to a friend there, and it was a classical night at the Barbunia, we arrived, chowed down some great seafood and salads, got drunk from pure Vodka and got very load around our table!
From a night of just showing up to say “Mazal-Tov” it turned into a wild night of Huging Kissing and a bit of Face slaping..Woke up a day after with a headake and declered the Barbunia a great place once again!
