King George: Eating and Drinking with Kings
If I would have to choose oen word to describe this place ... Cheap.
The menu is divided to 5 section 10nis,20nis....50nis. There's nice food and a 1/3 of beer is 10nis.
Nice place to sit and drink, or to grab something to quiet the appetite, but don't expect anything special.Related to:

The Armadillo Pub: Drinking with Weird Mammals
A small pub in the heart of Tel Aviv. Young crowed (25-30), Camel beer (Israeli botique beer) and good food. Tunes can range form reggai to jazz to rock. For parking there are several parking lots (not free) in the area, but hey, who wants to drive after all the Camel beer :)
In weekend the place is packed, but just act like evryone and drink your beer standing up until some table is clear.Related to:

Nana Bar: Beautiful restaurant & Bar
This is one of the popular places located in one of the most popular areas in Tel Aviv - Neve Tzedek.
The place is definitely nice, i loved its design and atmosphere. In the first room when you enter there's a nice small bar and behind some tables and sofas... from there you can go in to the 2nd room which is like in a indoor garden and from there you can get to the small room which is a real tiny bar.
The Alcohol isn't very cheap but some of the food is really good !
Irie pub: an excellent pub like at home
To the Irie pub I've arrive by an accient, and I still can't believe that I found a place like this in Tel aviv, The pub is locate in 45, Nachalat Binyamin st. and is a small place with second floor and an excellent!! music, low cost beverage and a great atmosphere. You have to try it!
Dress Code: as you want
various: A bit'o cultcha
Tel Aviv has the main concentration of theatres in Israel. Habimah Theatre is the 'National Theatre' , but it is given more than a run for its money at the Cameri and Gesher Theatres, which have established an international name for themselves.
Habimah Theatre has 5 stages, the Cameri at its new venue (pictured) offers 4 - Gesher/Bet Lessin each have 800 seat venues. All not surprisingly offer predominantly Israeli productions inHebrew - but due to increasing international exposure, English surtitles are creeping into the theatres.
Fringe is also strong in TLV - Tmu Na Theatre (see previous tip) and ZOA House are the main fringe centres, but dance venue Suzanne Dellal Centre occasionally features fringe theatre, the israeli Arab Theatre (Jaffa) is gaining in strength.
Dress Code: Anything goes
Going out in Tel Aviv, General
Want to go out for a drink? The dance-bar district of around Lilenblum street is for pick-ups, Go up to Rotchild street around Alenby all the way up to HaBima square for more class. Some good cafes on Ibn Gvirol around the municipality. But for the true neighborhood pub fans, try any sidestreet off Ibn Gvirol or Dizengof for some local dive.
Dress Code: A dress code in Israel?!?!?!?!

The beach: Morningtime Tip
A nice two hour beach stroll from old Yafo (buy a bottle of wine) to the hotel district in downtown Tel Aviv (buy Irish coffee) it's very refreshing. Nightlife might be fun as well. I never did it, so that's all from me.
Dress Code: Windbreaker, pack of L&M, the shoes doesn't matter, it's sand anyway.
Various: Cafe society (Allenby/Shenkin)
Cafes abound in Tel Aviv (see under local customs) throughout the city, with many staying open until 3-4am (and some all night). And importantly, all not only serve coffee, but also alcohol and FOOD throughout the opening hours.
Although to eb found throughout the city, there are a few key areas where there always be a youngish, happening crowd.
Allenby/Shenkin: the longest established area and the Soho of Tel Aviv. Bars, restaurants, clubs, cafes abound here and this is most definately the 4am traffic-jam area at weekends (and good and bad, the top of my street!). Personal cafe favourites here (see separate tips for restaurants) are Cafe Bialek and My Cafe - next door to each other (My Cafe only after Bialek closes at 4am!). Each have tables outside (which can, admittedly, be somewhat noisy due to the traffic on Allenby), but at Bialek the food (great schnitzels) & service better and regulars much friendlier - but hey - My Cafe is open all night!
which one?: Clubbing
Tel Aviv is the place to party and to party all night long. Many of the clubs stay open all night Thursday and Friday and some on Saturday (don;t forget Sunday is a normal workign day) and there are always clubs open to 3am or so on other days. Few have dress codes in the same way as other major cities and from June 1- to September 30 (approx) many of the clubs move to open-air venues in the Old Port of Tel Aviv (where some of them have their dance floor right up against the sea wall).
The biggest are TLV and The Dome - more than 2000 revellers each in huge barn-like interiors. Predominantly restricted to Friday & Saturday, they alternate their nights - ie gay at the Dome on Friday and TLV on Saturday (as a general rule). But certainly not exclusive.
All ages as long as you're there to party.
The port clubs are all virtually interchangeable - simply walk down the street and decide which one you like the sound of music (sic) and the crowds who are going in.
Smaller clubs include Lemon (slightly older, more jazz-funk): Lola's (young): Dvash (esoteric, ambient and dub/ragga):
2nd Floor (different each night from rock-chick through to gay): Leila's (dance bar most nights, gay on Saturdays); Pascha (very mixed)
As a party city, there are frequent international visiting DJSs- TLV and The Dome are the main big commercial venues, with Dvash hosting a number of more 'arty' style DJs (as well as live music).
There are also festivals throughout the year in Tel Aviv featuring the best sounds around - main one being Heinekin Vibes throughout the summer months.
Dress Code: From shorts to G strings, a suit would probably get you barred! Occasional attitude at the door, but more likely the basis of 'encouraging' a queue. The more there are, the better it must be.
Tel Aviv is the right place to...
Tel Aviv is the right place to be for nightlife! You can find bars and discos here and even on the boulevard and at the beach are bars, games and people who enjoy themselves. It gets really busy after 10 pm. There are at some days even trafficjams at 2 am!

sea shore is sooo crowded at nights with people from all the ages, it is possible to find any pubor discok around the sea shore
fish restaurants in Jaffa which is 10 min drive from the sea shore are recommended!

The whole beach area of Tel Aviv is a night life spot i have to say. You will find here lots of discos, bars, restaurants, shopping centers... or just go to the beach and have party time there! A friend who lives here told me that the beach life of Tel Aviv is quite comparable to the one of Rio de Janeiro... anyway i never have been in Rio so i have to trust her;)
On weekends you have a good chance that there are some cultural or music events. During my stay there was a 'Love Parade' in Tel Aviv and an open air concert at the old port of Jaffa.
We crossed a few times this one at night, it had a great atmosphere, we did not seat there, and I wish we had, as it looked great.
Maybe next time ;-)
