Shpagat

This bar is where it’s always party-o-clock, and you don’t have to pay to get in, as long as you have a drink or a bite, and the menu includes several affordable picks, inclucing the house wine and draft beers. Their street parties are the most fun where you can mingle and get to know all the gorgeous local guys and gals.

A cheap thrill in Jaffa, the historical old town, where Arabs and Jews bond dancing to hits of Palestinian DJs and Arabic oldies. Best to pick the arak chasers – the local anise spirit is affordable and strong, and will surely put you in the mood to let yourself go while the hijab-wearing drag queens entertain the crowd.
