Alma de Cuba

Best for: Latin

Be it salsa, merenguem or reggeaton, Alma de Cuba has it all. Grab a cocktail and graduate to tequila as the space fills. This is a night for flats, letting your hair down, and gawking at the talent when a salsa song is played.

Alma de Cuba, 3 Carlebach Street, Tel Aviv



Best for: Being Spotted

Love it or hate it, Clara is a prominent spot in the Tel Aviv nightlife scene, where people frequent in order to ‘see and be seen’. This seaside beach bar opens only in the balmy summer months, when beautiful people line up to dance on Clara’s huge outdoor wooden deck, overlooking the shore of Tel Aviv. The drinks are pricey, the crowd is international and the tables are exclusive. Don your heels and perfect your pout.

Buxa and Kuli Alma

Best for: Alternative

For those seeking an edgier crowd, BuXa fits the brief. In the belly of this underground club lies a packed dance floor, while the top floor’s open space offers a calmer setting. If not for the electric funk, visit BuXa for their ever-changing exhibitions of street and fine pop art. Kuli Alma guarantees an excellent (and cheap) night for those who gravitate to more ‘alternative’ spots. Observe video art projections flitter across the graffitied walls in their outdoor space whilst chatting to friends and digging into their famous Italian crust pizzas, or dance to House, Electronic and Hip-Hop beats, courtesy of their fantastic DJs, indoors.

BuXa, 31 Sderot Rothschild, Tel Aviv-Yafo, 6688301

Kuli Alma, 10 Mikveh Israel Street, Tel Aviv-Yafo

Beit Ha’amudim

Best for: Jazz

Beit Ha’amudim is a cafe by day, jazz bar by night. A shabbily chic venue, characteristic of the Nahalat Binyamin neighborhood, where the pace is slow, the crowd is unpretentious and the music is soulful. Nightly performances kick off at 9.30pm, and entrance is free. The food is fantastic; fresh, Mediterranean and vegetarian so be sure to include dinner in the night’s itinerary.

Beit Ha’amudim, 14 Rambam Street, Tel Aviv-Yafo

Dreck at Valium Club

Best for: Gay Scenes

For happy vibes head to Dreck on Wednesday nights, hosted at Valium Club. With mainstream, pop music to dance the night away to and free entry, this is the place to have fun that won’t break the bank. Dreck’s Fridays are typical of the weekend parties that earned Tel Aviv its international reputation as a ‘Gay Mecca’. Forever TLV and Beef parties are also on the frontline of the weekend scene. The crowd tends to be older, around 30, and hot, the DJs are well known and the parties are wild.

Valium Club, 1 Ben Yehuda Street, Tel Aviv-Yafo, 0509695407

The Breakfast Club

Best for: After Hours

When all other clubs are emptying, The Breakfast Club is the place to go to keep partying until sunrise. Sure, the majority of attendees are highly intoxicated, and it’s not necessarily a classy joint, but with two DJs, often of a high international calibre, spinning a mix of electronic, trance and house music each night (one at The Breakfast Club and the other at Milk Bar), a wild night is guaranteed.

The Breakfast Club, 6 Sderot Rothschild, Tel Aviv-Yafo
