New Jerusalem nightlife blog – Luz Control


You could say that Jerusalem is not so famous for its nightlife scene. Museums, really old archeological finds, and awful drivers, fo’ sure. But nightlife… not so much.  Jerusalem has only a handful of really happening clubs and recently, Jerusalem’s best known club, Haoman 17 shut down rebranded to “17” and I heard Bonita in the city center did too. But, just when I thought it’s lights out for the holy city, I came across a new section in the weekend Jerusalem Post called Luz Control. Written by Luz Ofek, the section is a list of all the upcoming hottest clubs and parties in Jerusalem. Luz also updates his herblog frequently for those not interested in the now 14.90 NIS Friday Jpost paper (I don’t know what kind of addictive substance they’re putting in their paper, but I can’t live without it on Shabbat!)

The site is in hebrew, but let’s see how you do with this academic language of our forefathers:

דה קונסטנטין דה בסט דה ביגטיים דה לייק איט לייק אה טרק!!

uh… what?

Our ancestors would be so proud to know just how flexible the hebrew language has become. They certainly didn’t teach enough Hebrish in my ulpan.

Have fun out there! As for me, I’ll be sitting at home, devouring the opium-lined Jpost and coping with my denial that I’m not 21 anymore.

    Hi Rebecca! Haoman 17 did not close! They rebranded and redesigned about 1.5 years ago and are now a “mega-bar.”
