1. HaTza’atzua/Toy Bar

Bar, Israeli

Toy Bar, or HaTza’atzua in Hebrew, was built on the former location of a famous toy store. Now it is a bar and dance club, aiming to attract a younger clientele – mostly students – but it is an elegant and trendy place for people of all ages. HaTza’atzua has great bar food, special house cocktails, and special events weekly. This multi-level club also hosts local DJs each week, and is well known for its great party atmosphere and youthful, fun nightlife scene.

2. Oliver Twist

Bar, Israeli

Yes, Oliver Twist as in the Charles Dickens’ character – but this dance club certainly bears no resemblance to its namesake. A highly rated dance club and bar located in a renovated 150-year-old structure, Oliver Twist retains a unique, homey feel despite its very modern renovation. The club has a DJ stand, new sound and lighting systems, a huge bar, and a coat closet – so there’s no need to drag your belongings around as you dance the night away.

Haoman 17 Club
