Imperial Craft and Deluxe join forces to bring Jaffa 'Motel' - a bar celebrating American trash.
Motel, the bar built on the ruins of the old Stellar bar in Jaffa's Flea Market, is "American trash, a bit of sleaze, but with old-school vibes," says Bar Shira, one of the founders of the Imperial group, who teamed up with the Deluxe group for the purpose of the project. What they call "Trash" is translated into a cocktail menu that pays tribute to the delusional cocktails of the seventies and eighties. Drinks such as 'Sex On The Beach' and 'Tequila Sunrise' were upgraded to drinks like the 'PB & Jack' cocktail (Jack Daniels Honey, Port wine, peanut butter, lemon, sugar and egg white), 'Pink Skirt' (Woodford Reserve, mezcal del maguey, egg yolk, and maple), and 'Atomic Kitten' (Bacardi coconut white rum, Jamaican rum, pineapple rum with melon, pineapple, lemon and angostura bitters). Save room for food because the menu offers everything the Deluxe group does really, really well: variations of the over-the-top American barbecue dishes. In other words, dishes like the 'Mac Rib' (smoked spare ribs coated with deep fried panko with pickled onions and barbecue sauce); grilled corn-on-the-cob topped with cheese, smoked mayonnaise, and paprika; and their delicious deluxe burger (crispy brisket with cheddar cheese). So head on over to the South for some good ole' greasy grub and stellar cocktails to match.
