One of the better known performance and recreation compounds in the North of Israel. Shavei Zion born, Bezalel graduate, painter Tomer Reshef, whose works are exhibited at the gallery in the compound, felt the need for a place of culture in the Western Galilee. Nine years ago, at the heart of the village where the first bakery of Shavei Zion used to stand, he established the HaPara Bar Restaurant. The remnants of the bakery’s chimney can be seen to this day in the ceiling above the bar.
The place consists of two sections – a round bar with a large alcohol selection, with tall bar stools set around the barman and a hall for singing, music and stand-up performances comprising an additional bar.
HaPara Pub hosted and hosts artists of the first line. Performances are held Wednesday through Saturday.
Once every two weeks HaPara hosts a Jazz performance.
At HaPara Bar Restaurant the kitchen offers from alcoholic treats and Tapas to a meat menu; cheese and meat platters, deserts, sandwiches, toasts and salads.
