An evening of Japanese cocktails and fine fish tartare on the side
The Gatsby Bar’s premier mixologists and Eddy Kozlov, Yama VaKedma’s cocktail extraordinaire, will stir for you three fantastic cocktails that will blend the exotic flavors of Japan with the alcohol culture of the country of the rising sun. For each drink, Chef Gilad Dabush will pair the izakaya-style raw fish – the Japanese version of tapas – with Gatsby’s special culinary interpretation: miso salmon ceviche, zucca tuna, and specialty truffles.
All you have to do is learn how to say “L’Chaim” (cheers) in Japanese …

About the Location
Gatsby is Jerusalem’s first and most decorated cocktail bar. Its design looks like it came straight from the American Roaring Twenties — the Prohibition era when alcohol consumption was forbidden by law and went underground into speakeasies in the most unexpected places, giving rise to a lively and daring culture. The Gatsby, which is named after the protagonist of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel for good reason, will take you on a mixological journey of open and hidden flavors from that glittering era.
