A small bar packed with flavor. Everything we tried was delicious, drinks slightly on the pricey side and portions are modest but definitely worth it!!!

Being the first bar opened in The Mahaneh Yehuda Market, The 5th Of May was the spark that ignited the market's night life. This hometown pub atmosphere prides itself on its quality, fresh food supplied locally by its market neighbors. They serve beers to please your most classic tastebuds to the freshest brew on the market. If you're searching for something else, their playful cocktails always put a jump in your step. Alas, it truly is the ever alternating music destination that will make you open your Shazam application on repeat. Come on down to experience the original market scene.
