Those who think Tel Aviv nightlife is bereft of Jewish identity need only visit the Jewish Princess on the corner of Yehuda HaLevi and Betzalel Yaffe. The bar's not far from the Lilienblum bar compound, yet isolated enough that visitors don't feel like they're on a Tel Aviv pub crawl. While the interior of the bar hardly gives away the Jewish pride of its Zionist owners, it was named Jewish Princess in part because, according to them, only in the Jewish state can a bar get away with such a name. It would be hard to identify a stereotypical Jewish princess sitting at the central rectangular bar - where a shelf of prime liquors hangs over pretty barkeepers - since most of the clientele are Tel Aviv bargoers with a taste for the trendy, alternative and even a little goth. Every night a DJ spins electronic grooves that contribute to the intimate, sexy feel of the place, which also has a lounge area for private parties. Its tolerant and homey environment would make any 25+ Jewish princess feel welcome, as long as she doesn't mind laser-cut wall-reliefs that form a flowery design from afar, but upon closer examination reveal human bodies in a variety of positions that would make a Hebrew school teacher blush. Small chandeliers carefully crafted by Bezalel graduates contribute sparks of yellow to an otherwise nocturnal bar, which also serves a tasty (non-kosher) selection of salads, cheeses and sandwiches. Jewish Princess is a spot for the Jewess who likes a little irony, and who seeks a non-judgmental place where a closet Jewish prince just might be lurking. Yehuda Halevi 67; Music: Freestyle; Hours: From 9:30 p.m. No cover.
