Tel Aviv Attractions

Tel Aviv is called “The city that never sleeps” by tourists and locals alike. It has a wide range of Pubs, Bars, Clubs and it is known worldwide for the Pub Scene. The entire city is crawling with nightlife attractions and you would actually have to work pretty hard to find yourself further than 500 meters away from a place to have a drink. People from the entire surrounding region come to Tel Aviv to have a drink or party. So, on weekends, traffic is hectic at late hours and finding parking can be difficult (sticking to cabs is not a bad idea). Any day of the week is a good time to party in Tel Aviv, not just the weekends.

Famous Tourist Spots
Clubbing
Cafés

New places are opening and closing every day and the “hottest spots” change every couple of months. An internet guide will be unable to direct you to the hippest place (though, some may try). Many places in Tel Aviv have minimum age requirements that vary from 18+ to 30+. Usually the limitation is different between males and females. While some spots may be flexible, others will be as strict as possible.

Israel has no unique drinking culture of its own. Any place with self-respect will have the entire worldwide selection of alcohol available, from Wine and Beer to Tequila, Arak, Vodka, Whiskey, and Cognac. One of the most popular drinks is the local Goldstar beer and the Annis based Arak. Even though the entire city is full of spots to hang out, there are a few places that have an unusual amount of pubs/clubs:

Tel Aviv Seaport

Located on the beach just west of Yarkon Park, right between central and north Tel Aviv, is the old seaport. The entire place is full of clubs, pubs and restaurants right next to each other. Notable spots: TLV Club, UpTown, Erlich, Shalvata, Seabreeze, Whiskey-A-Gogo and more. This area is very busy on the weekends during the summer months and on warm days the rest of the year, as this area attracts people from all around the city and the wider Gush Dan area.

Dizengoff & Ben Yehuda St.

The northern parts of Dizengoff and Ben Yehuda are full of chic bars that are full almost every day with a 22+ crowd. Sometimes it’s just hard to breathe there. Notable spots:Friends, Bergman, Rosa, Yermiyahu.

The Boardwalk

The entire beach area, from the seaport in the north to Jaffa in the south, is full of cafes, restaurants and bars. Some are normal open bars while others actually spread to the beach with tables on the sand. This is the main “tourist” area of Tel Aviv’s nightlife scene.

Allenby St.

Going from the Beach to the west, all the way to the south-east of Tel Aviv, Allenby is one of the longest streets in the city. The western area is full of mainly pubs and dance bars, not the hippest clubs but stable places that have been there for years and are occasionally full of tourists. Allenby Street may sometimes feel a bit dodgy but fear not. It’s cheap, but not recommended to eat.

Lilinblum – Levontine –
Nahlat Binyamin St.

There are a few streets around the east side of Allenby with many trendy pubs catering to an extremely sophisticated crowd. Any arrivals to this area will ensure a good drink Notable spots: Shesek, Lima Lima, Atara, Betty Ford, Bordel, Flame, Academia, Abraxas, Minus One and more.

Ibn Gvirol

A recently developed pubbing area with some of the coolest pubs in Tel Aviv. During the day it appeals to the many lawyers and businessmen working in the area. Notable spots: 2 clubs – Vila Sokolov and Landen, and the pubs- restaurants like Dorothy Gales, Brasserie and Liliroz.

Karlibach

A new clubbing area with pubs being opened in every corner. Notable spots: ZiziTripo, Hachatul Ve’Hakelev.

Ha’Masger – Ha’Rakevet St.

Mainly a clubbing area for Tel Aviv’s younger crowd (18-19) with huge clubs and dance bars. Notable spots: Dome, Vox and more.

Florentin

Mostly small neighborhood bars for a cool fun night out in a chic area in Tel Aviv. Most spots in Florentin appeal to the artsy and indie crowd. Florentin has a “rugged” appearance, especially at night, but it is totally safe. Notable spots: Hudna (Abarbanel street), Comfort 13, Haoman 17 and all the little places on Florentine St. and Vital St.

Ramat Ha’Chayal

Located in the north near the rich neighborhoods. This area has been developed to accommodate the vast high-tech industry around it, so one can expect somewhat commercialized and rather upscale spots. Notable spots: Leo Blooms, Molly’s, Frame, Sushi Samba.
