On Thursday night, Florentin becomes one big street party. With all kinds of bars standing here side by side, Florentin is a perfect place for pub crawls. Many places here have live music, stand up shows, and other sorts of entertainment. People here are young, creative, and friendly. Most of them are from the neighbourhood.
Exactly this kind of guys, three friends from the neighbourhood, opened a bar that later became a legend. They used to go to the same bar for years and one day they saw it was closed. For good. Losing favourite place made them think of opening their own bar. They took a loan, redecorated the place, and opened the bar called Hoodna.
A year later the place burnt down. But I guess those guys really liked challenges since they decided to build it again from scratch. They organised a big party to collect money for rebuilding the bar. And they succeed! The bar is still there, on Abarbanel 13.
All this might be just another urban legend but I like to think of it while drinking my beer at Hoodna. Plus, they have nice live concerts there.
