A snug cocktail bar serving indulgent American food inspired by the ‘speakeasy concept’. The first of its kind in Tel Aviv, Moonshine could go unnoticed from the outside. Down the stairs, walking through the door into the basement bar, you are greeted with an underground atmosphere; a bar stocked with liquors of all kinds, and a menu to ensure your hunger levels are perfectly satisfied. With a variety of deliciously crafted cocktails, a unique drinking experience is created. Some say their sloppy Joe is the best dish on the menu.
Being the only authentic Cuban dance bar in Israel, Alma de Cuba has a lot to live up to. If you’re hoping for plenty of tequila, endless mojitos and to be dancing until the early hours of the morning then you have definitely come to the right place. Mojitos are served, tequila is passed around and you are free to dance bachata and salsa all night long. That Latin energy you were dreaming about this summer in Havana, it is right here in your city.
Café by day, jazz bar by night, Beit Haamudim attracts those of the Nahalat Binyamin area who are keen for a jazzy feeling to the evening, and to immerse themselves within the warm and cosy atmosphere that the bar creates. Gigs kick off (for free) most evenings at 9.30pm. The food is also fantastic, so be sure to come hungry.
Bayern is Israel’s first Bavarian Brasserie offering you Austrian and German cuisine classics; Schnitzel (bigger than the traditional Israeli Schnitzel), served with mashed potatoes and a variety of traditional Bavarian salads. German beers are an option too. Israelis are always dreaming of Germany, so now they have it all at their feet.
An Israeli take on Morocco and extremely authentic. The musical style is based on modern music from the Maghreb countries; reggae, hip hop, funk and Arabic African groove. The design, food and drink also has North African influence. Tangier offers all you can drink deals, provided you are wearing a bracelet and you pay their reasonable fee of 65 shekels.
Some say that Rothschild 12 is the hippest place in town, serving you all that you may want for some time out of the house. Perhaps for coffee, brunch, lunch or dinner, Rothschild 12 will do the trick at all hours of the day, and is the perfect setting for the young, wild and free. Stylish Tel Avivians can enjoy comfort food, a hefty glass of red wine or relax over a hearty brunch on weekends. For music lovers, Rothschild 12 is a must. With regular live music, delicious food and plenty of drinks, this place is an easy favorite.
With 93 different Israeli beers, and three beers on tap, being able to pick any flavour of beer you desire is the Beer Bazaar’s speciality. Some may say the Beer Bazaar is best known for its house brew, The Fat Cat, but it’s not only its beer flavours that make it so popular, they serve a killer roast beef sandwich. Situated in a crevice just off The Carmel Market, the Beer Bazaar exudes that stereotypical Tel Aviv afternoon; sun shining, sitting out on the street, people watching and beer drinking. The staff and owners are also very welcoming and excited for everyone to join their journey through the adventure and their love of beer.
An amalgamation of a little bit of everything; coffee shop, sandwich bar, live lounge, karaoke haven, gallery – this is the beauty of the Yom Tov Café. You don’t know what to expect when you enter the Yom Tov Café on any given evening, perhaps a comedy show, a disco, or just a night with lots of beers and friends. If you go during the day, expect a conversation with whoever else may be sitting there, over a coffee and a cigarette, while the hustle and bustle of the Carmel Market unfolds around you.
Life can be exhausting, expensive and quite unexotic but not when you have Cofix. If you fancy a cheap evening, head to the Cofix on Lilienblum or on King George, or Nachalat Binyamin – the bar is conveniently located all around the city. If you don’t feel like spending much money that day, Cofix will be sure to fix your day, as it’s so cheap and tasty, that it can only put a smile on your face.
