Down by Anna

Anna looks like an arty, high-class dungeon with black leather couches, sleek black bars, a downstairs pool table, and subtle, colorful lighting in different corners throughout.

Anna looks like an arty, high-class dungeon with black leather couches, sleek black bars, a downstairs pool table, and subtle, colorful lighting in different corners throughout. The walls are adorned with art that alternates monthly - paintings, video art, and photographs. When Anna first opened its doors about half a year ago, it drew fire for hanging a picture of "Anna Frank Zappa." But it's this type of intellectual, tongue-in-cheek artistic flair that the owners strive for - in the art and the music. They shy away from the mainstream, and every night the DJ spins either funk, jazzy house, electro, dub, and reggae, but never MTV hits or commercial music. The menu is also not simplistic, with creative and light dishes. Anna is a real person - she's characterized as sexy, small and warm, and pictures of her can be seen on the wall. While it's hard to see how every visitor can connect with this mysterious personality, Anna is a place where its easy to connect with others on more than just a primal level, in part because of its artistic emphasis and secluded location. Anna is located in the area east of Hamasger Street in South Tel Aviv, close to but far enough away from the loud, bustling Yad Haharutzim bar compound. Anna, Rival 32, Hours: From 9:30 p.m., Music: Non-commercial
