We really enjoyed this area. Did a lot of shopping, tasting, and eating....Be prepared to be tempted by the wonderful array of merchandize.

Don't forge to stroll through some of the side streets as well as up and down Jaffa Street. Ben Yehuda Street still has some of the old stores but some new ones as well....At the bottom/top Kikar Zion still offers some interesting musicians.

There is a puzzle store and some great pubs and places to eat. Even as an Irish guy I would not recommend the Dublin pub, but everywhere else was lots of fun. I think it was Mike's Pub that i went to a few times....More

We kept returning to this street, because we kept finding fun things to do and there were wonderful little places to find yummy pastries and quick bites.

Although many of the shops are closed during the Sabbath, the Street itself remains open to walk through. The Sabbath finishing time is usually notified in the press and locally - shops begin to open some time later.
