SquareMeal Review of
Jerusalem Bar & Kitchen
Jerusalem is a bar with a split personality – and that’s a compliment. By day, the subterranean dive is warm and inviting, with mellow music and chunky farmhouse tables for savouring a glass
of red or nibbling something from the straightforward menu: maybe a salad of grilled goats’ cheese ahead of full-flavoured jerk chicken, some pasta, a burger or fillet of salmon with spinach and
mash. By night, you suddenly notice the rich red drapes and gothic candelabra, as the DJs and revellers descend and the place casts off its homely slippers in favour of party shoes. The music
is cranked up and the drinks begin to flow, while an up-for-it crowd let their hair down. Staff are usually laid-back, except for occasional off-nights when the bar is overflowing.
