    Various: Cafe society (Allenby/Shenkin)

    by leffe3 Written Nov 11, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    Nana Bar: Beautiful restaurant & Bar

    by Sharon Updated Jun 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 !

    various: A bit'o cultcha

    by leffe3 Written Jan 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Shablul Jazz Club: Jazz in the Tel-Aviv Harbor

    by iblatt Updated Feb 23, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Shablul" ("Snail" in Hebrew) is one of the leading jazz clubs in Israel. It's located in one of the refurbished hangars of the old Tel-Aviv Harbor, one minute's walk from the boardwalk.
    It's quite small and cosy, the music is always good or even excellent, and the atmosphere is great.

    There is a basic food menu (pizzas, a few salads, a few sandwiches) and a more elaborate drinks menu.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Cafe Yafo: Musical Shows in an Italian Bistro

    by iblatt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Cafe Yafo" is located in the flea market of Jaffa. At night there are no fleas and no market, but a few night spots are open and serve food and drink. Cafe Yafo also features live entertainment.

    Cae Yafo is an Italian bistro, offering various pizzas, pasta dishes and salads.
    Sevaral nights a week there are live music shows: Jazz, flamenco, acoustic guitar, Greek and Mediterranean music, among others.

    We saw a very pleasant show of South American music with two singers and a guitar. The place is usually packed: better reserve a table in advance!

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Bar Giora: Acoustic Guitar on Dizengoff

    by iblatt Updated May 31, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very pleasant place to spend an evening. On the ground floor, as you enter, there is a bistro with a good selection of sandwiches, salads, soup, pasta and main courses. Further inside on the entrance floor there is a bar.

    However, the main attraction is down in the basement. a small, intimate lounge with a stage and live music performances which change every evening. Most of the audience is young and vibrant. The monthly program is varied, with blues, jazz, rock, acoustic and more. Every Monday is open stage. Every Friday there is a DJ.

    We watched a stunning performance of the "Wandering Endorphin" on acoustic guitar, and greatly enjoyed the music and the ambience. Admission for the show was NIS 30.

    Dizzy Frishdon: plenty of places...

    by littlebush Written Sep 15, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are bars all over the city.
    The two nights we were there we went around Diezengoff street as theres lots down there.
    The port is well known for a good night out although we didnt find it!!!
    No matter what night of the week, everywhere seems busy.
    I cant say the names of all the places we tried as they were in Hebrew but i know these ones:

    -Amelia bistro - nice place to sit outside if you can find a table but was damn expensive, 42NIS for 2 SMALL beers.
    -DIZZY FRISHDON - we found this by chance on our last night. stopped some guy in the street for directions to another bar and instead invited us to this place, which on a Sunday night has all you drink wine for 45 NIS per person!!!! it was packed and you also get a small cheese platter with it. The bar is really cool-with 2 semi levels and a friendly atmosphere. we also had some tapas inside. they have some seats at the back bar that are like kids swings which we sat in and enjoyed our wine. great place. located at 120 something Diezengoff.
    -Other bars on Diezengoff - we went in another 2 different bars but dont know their names but all are similar, busy and look likefun

    -Mikes place - on the beach-this is famous with ex pats - we had a look inside, its rammed and mainly with tourists/expats - was too bust for us, but looks ok if you into that sort of thing

    which one?: Clubbing

    by leffe3 Written Sep 9, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 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!

    by Stefan Written Aug 23, 2002

    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.
