Jerusalemites Gil Barnea and Matan Parides, co-owners of Tap & Tail, have one of the Mahaneh Yehuda market’s most successful new businesses. The thriving cocktail and tapas establishment has been open for almost a year and shows no signs of slowing down. Unlike many other places in the bustling market that open quickly but close shortly thereafter, Tap & Tail is bursting at the seams nightly with satisfied customers.

Now Barnea and Parides are working their magic on The Curtain, a new eatery and bar at the Koresh Hotel in the city center. Koresh’s owners are two young brothers from the Hava family well known in Jerusalem for owning the building that houses the Great Synagogue, among other buildings. The boutique hotel, which opened in August, is nearly always fully booked, but the bar/restaurant was not living up to expectations.
