Lily and Bloom is a chic yet affordable Bauhaus-style hotel that’s just round the corner from all the goings-on on the historic Rothschild Boulevard, which is chock-full of cool bars and clubs. There’s a lounge bar in the hotel for some pre-club cocktails and, when you’re ready to party, take the five-minute walk to the intimate Alphabet Club, which always has a great line-up of DJs.

2. Brown Beach House

If your dream holiday involves flopping on the beach all day and bar-hopping at night, stay at the Brown Beach House, a young, hip boutique hotel located moments from the beach and near countless trendy bars on buzzing streets like Allenby and Dizengoff. Before you leave, try the bartender’s creative cocktails at the hotel’s Lobby 64 bar, or take your drink upstairs to the rooftop terrace to enjoy balmy Tel Aviv evenings.

4. CUCU Hotel

No party animal could holiday in Tel Aviv without spending at least a few evenings bar-hopping down the seemingly endless selection of establishments on Dizengoff Street. The quirky CUCU Hotel is just by Dizengoff Square, giving you an excellent base to traipse back to after one too many Goldstar beers. Before you head out to bars like Beer Garden or Mila, enjoy aperitivo at the hotel’s very own Café CUCU, where you’ll find revellers soaking in the streetside atmosphere.

5. The Norman Tel Aviv

As contemporary and cool as it is luxurious and elegant, The Norman is one of Tel Aviv’s finest and most famous places to stay. There are bars and clubs galore in the vicinity, but it’ll be hard to drag yourself away from all that’s on offer within the hotel: fine dining at Alena, sumptuous Japanese tapas at Dinings and mouthwatering cocktails at The Library Bar.

6. Market House

A trip to Tel Aviv wouldn’t be complete without exploring the ancient port city of Jaffa, and Market House, set right next to the Jaffa Clock Tower, is the perfect base from which to do this. While Jaffa’s nightlife has a lot to offer, make sure you stick around the hotel for the free happy hour first. Then, when you’re feeling merry, head to the eccentric Cuckoo’s Nest, a part art gallery, part antique shop and part bar where you can dance the night away to live music on the rooftop.

7. The Diaghilev Live Art Suites Hotel

Set near the busy Rothschild Boulevard in White City, the Diaghilev Hotel offers spacious suites with artistic flourishes. The hotel has its own bar, Backstage, where you can pick up breakfast in the mornings and beers and cocktails later in the day. Afterwards, walk to Speakeasy, a posh rooftop bar that’s ideal for people-watching, cocktail-sipping and sunset-marvelling.

Before you head out for the night, sip a drink, soak in the dramatic city views and enjoy the sound of the DJ at the Poli House Rooftop Bar.
