The Sheinkin street is in the centre of the city, between Alenvy st. to Dizengof st. Here you can find all the latest local and international fashion, good music stores and even some galleries. Also around here many trendy coffee shops and bars.
Shenkin in other words is the "Soho" of Tel Aviv. A place of the youth, an artists street and an heaven for the shopping lovers.
The street, consists of houndreds of shops and cafes is located in the heart of Tel Aviv, just between Alenby and King George is a must see in Tel Aviv.
Many things were told about the people of Shenkin. Some consider them to be very liberal and inteligent, others say they are lazy and live in thier special bubble. I believe that the only way you can judge this is by visiting there...
Sheinkin Street is one of the most well-known streets in Tel-Aviv, always young, always trendy. Some like to think that Sheinkin street and the "Sheinkin culture" are representative of Tel-Aviv in general, but I think it's only one facet of this vibrant multi-faceted city.
You can see the young and the not-so-young (but mainly the young!) stroll up and down, shop for clothing artefacts, crafts and knick-knacks, have a fruit drink in the brilliantly colored fruit-juice stand, or sit down for a cup of coffee and the latest gossip in one of the cafes, wipe off the sweat after walking in the hot and humid Tel-Aviv weather, maybe glance in the morning paper.
We had coffee in the "Tika Love Cafe", up Sheinkin street 2 blocks away from the Rothschild Boulevard, on Friday towards noon. This is one of several Sheinkin cafes located in old, simple, previously-residential houses, capturing some of the atmosphere of little Old Tel-Aviv" of the 1930s and 1940s. People-watching for a few minutes yielded a group of students discussing where to go in the evening, a young couple with twin-babies in a stroller, an old lady struggling up the street with a cane and a bag of groceries, a girl-soldier on her way home in uniform, carrying her M16, just meeting an old high school friend who laid down her 3 shopping bags to greet her friend with a big bear hug.
Sheinkin street is one of the most famous streets in Tel aviv because of the coexistence between the religious jews and the non-religious who live here.
The street is named after one of the founders of Tel aviv - Menachem Sheinkin.
On this street you will find a lot of stores , street shows on friday.
Sheinkin St. is mostly recomended to go on Fridays, as there's alot of happening !! Lots of people all over, Music (mostly when the wheather is good which is most of the year), Lots of nice cafe's, nice shops and great atmosphere.
