While Tel Aviv’s nightlife understandably hogs the spotlight in Israel, Eilat is slowly starting to build its own presence. Coupled with the many outdoor activities the country’s southernmost city has to offer, visitors can now also choose from an array of nightspots to hang out.

1. Jasper 08

Bar, Restaurant, Contemporary, Mediterranean, Tapas

Making a name for itself as one of Tel Aviv’s best cocktail bars, Jasper John’s recently opened a second branch, under a slightly different name, in Eilat. Located inside the newly renovated Agamim Hotel, one of the finest places to stay in Eilat, this establishment has well and truly raised the bar in terms of quality and elegance in the local nightlife scene. Its contemporary New York atmosphere and design is complemented by the expertly crafted cocktails and equally delicious food (expect a Middle Eastern-Mediterranean-Asian fusion, featuring plenty of fish). For a night out in style, this is the place to go.

2. Three Monkeys Pub

Bar, British

Located on the Royal Beach Promenade, this is the oldest pub in Eilat and it’s very popular for its live music and DJ performances throughout the week. Open until late, it has a dance floor, decent pub grub and a pleasant outdoor seating area where you can relax while enjoying the sea breeze. Football fans will be delighted with their screenings of big games. If fancy cocktail bars or nightclubs aren’t your thing, then this is a cheap and cheerful spot for a few beers in a casual setting.

Those seeking a night of clubbing into the early hours needn’t look further than this establishment. With its open-air setup, impressive visual and lighting displays and DJ sets by electronic musicians from Israel and abroad, it is no wonder why locals flock here. For a rave in Eilat that may leave you thinking you’re in Ibiza, Selena is the place to be.

Owned by the same people behind Selena, this is another top spot for dancing the night away in Eilat. It is equipped with a solid sound system, lounge areas and a large dance floor, offering live performances and DJ sets from Israeli and international musicians. Whether you’re in the mood for a hip-hop night or an electronic music set, this club has everything you need for a fun night out. Expect plenty of flying tissues, confetti style (a common quirk in Israeli nightclubs) and a young crowd.

For a high-end nightspot, this slick New York-style cocktail bar and restaurant is a fine choice. Located in a large and impressive building, its inventive array of cocktails is matched by a highly rated menu that combines Italian, American, Mexican and Asian flavours. Added to that an excellent service and an overall buzzing atmosphere, you won’t leave this establishment disappointed.

6. Bardak

Bar, Middle Eastern

Another fun spot for a drink and dance combo, this establishment has a pub-like set up with wooden bar tables and stalls, plus a dance floor. Here, you will find young people from Israel and abroad, tasty cocktails and a friendly atmosphere. With an eclectic range of music throughout the week, from rock and roll to live electronic sets, this is an excellent, no-frills spot for a fun night out in Eilat.
