Nightlife areas in Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv is nicknamed "the city that never stops" meaning that the nightlife goes on until morning, bars are very trendy at the moment as the main nightlife outing, also pubs and music clubs are in. Restaurants and cafés are also open at least until midnight.

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: Show more

Tel Aviv seaport (Namal)

Located at beach side to the west of the Yarkon Park right between Tel Aviv center and north is the old seaport. The entire place is full of clubs, pubs and restaurants right next to each other door by door. Notable places: TLV Club, UpTown, Erlich, Shalvata, Seabreeze, Whiskey a gogo and more. Very busy in weekends during the summer and on warm days during 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 north ends of these streets are full of chic bars that are packed almost every day with a 22+ crowd. Sometimes it's just hard to breath there. Notable: Friends, Bergman, Rosa, Yermiyahu.and "223" bar for more of the new york speak easy cool spoot.

The Boardwalk (Tayellet)

The entire beach area from the seaport in the north to Jaffa in the south is full of mainly cafes, restaurants and bars. Some are normal open bars while others actually spread to the beach with tables on the sand. This is the more "touristy" area of Tel Aviv's nightlife scene, that the "real Tel-Avivians" try to avoid.

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 mostly not recommended to eat.

Lilinblum - Levontine - Nahlat Binyamin st.

A few streets around the east side of Allenby with many trendy pubs with an extremely sophisticated crowd, and many dance bars that range from the bluntly commercial to the leftfield indie. Any arrivals to this area will ensure a good drink. Notable: Shesek, Lima Lima, Atara, Betty Ford, Bordel, Flame, Academia, Abraxas, Minus one and more.

Ha'Masger - Ha'Rakevet St.'

Mainly a clubbing area for Tel Aviv's younger crowd (18-19) with huge clubs and dance bars. Notable: 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: Hudna (Abarbanel street), Comfort 13, Haoman 17 and all the little places on Florentine st. and Vital st.

King George-Tshernechovsky (HaMelech George)

in the close to Shenkin st. upper side of King George you can find some alternative cafes and bars, like "Geatzel Shapira" on Almonit lane and "little prince" which is the center of the young poetry revival movement that connected to "Maayan" poetry magazine and others interesting poetry or art fanzines. On Tshernechovsky, not far from there, there are several cafes and cheap restaurants. close to Dizengoff Center, you can find "Bacho" cafe, a nice place with too-artistic atmohphere, "Hakosem Falafel" and the "Yemen Falafel", both recommended.

Ibn Gvirol

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

Habarzel (Ramat Ha'Chayal)

Located at 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: Leo Blooms, Molly's, Frame, Sushi Samba, Giraf, Black, Segev Express, Moses, Max Brener.

Karlibach

A new clubbing area with pubs growing in every corner. Notable: ZiziTripo, Hachatul Ve'Hakelev.
