Colony (7 Beit Lechem Road, Jerusalem) – this venue is adjacent to a defunct train station, and its success has actually attracted other bars into this area. The restaurant-lounge-bar is divided into four main components to offer something for everyone: a dining area, a sophisticated bar, a cushioned relaxation area, and upstairs seating area for more secluded feasting.
Colony is popular among foreign journalists, diplomats and Israeli government officials (in other words, the “30 and above” crowd). The spot is considered by some a slice of Tel Aviv in Jerusalem, drawing the Jerusalem “in” crowd and ex-Jerusalemites that migrated to Israel’s metropolis. Tuesdays feature live local bands starting at 10:30 pm.
