Very stressful atmosphere. The chefs in the bar are stressed so they tend to forget your orders and the music is so loud that you can't talk with either your partner or the chef even though you sit in the bar.

What a great place. Fun atmosphere, nice crowd, and the drinks, especially the drinks. The food was good too. Went twice. Once on a Friday early afternoon when they had live music, and then again midweek evening. This for me was the real Jerusalem experience!

This place is the ideal spot to grab a beer at the end of a long day around Jerusalem or just to go out with friends. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the young vibe adds a lot to the fun atmosphere. It's located the main market area in Jerusalem which has grown to be one of the... More

The Schena is one of the newests bars in town, full of life and located in the market of Machene Yehuda. I noticed that it is one of the popular spots for students studying in Jerusalem and has a friendly atmosphere, good music and a wide selection of local beers. Enjoyed my night out there immensely!
