This bar was named after American civil rights activist Rosa Parks, who famously refused to get up from her seat at the front of the bus. The average Israeli is pretty unfamiliar with her and her story, but oddly enough, it still is a Tel Aviv local hit.

French for “from behind,” the name of this bar would literally translate to מֵאֲחוֹרָה (meh-ah-kho-rah) in Hebrew. This romantic garden wine bar is located on the border of Jaffa and Tel Aviv. We’re still trying to figure out why it’s called that though…any ideas?
Literally meaning “consolation and a half” the name is a spin off of a Hebrew proverb חצי נחמה (cheh-tzee neh-chah-mah).In our opinion, there’s no going wrong eating here, with an unbeatable view of The Bima.
Keywords to know: חֵצִי נֶחָמָה (Israeli proverb meaning “If everyone’s doing something wrong, it’s only half as bad as everyone else did it too.”)
Yes that’s right…this bar is named after the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, probably because guests are served all the same dishes all at the same time. Given the fact that famous Israeli chef Raz Rahav chooses the menu daily, we don’t think anyone is complaining.
