Lev Ha’ir (heart of the city) offers some of the best hotel bars in Tel Aviv, from a 1920s-themed speakeasy to a rooftop bar with panoramic views of the skyline. Follow Culture Trip’s recommendations to plan the perfect night out.

The Bellboy is located in the lobby of the boutique Hotel B Berdichevsky on a small street off Rothschild Boulevard. With its 1920s-style decor, well-dressed bartenders and elaborate cocktails, the bar is perfect for a classy night out. Equally quirky in measure, waiters hand out shots from a baby stroller full of ice and bottles of liquor and serve cocktails in amusing vessels, such as a mini bathtub equipped with a rubber duck. Don’t miss out on the delicious food – we highly recommend the shrimp dim sum.

Set in a restored eclectic building built in 1922, this 12-room boutique hotel is home to one of Tel Aviv’s best restaurants and bars, serving a curated menu of classic, hand-crafted cocktails (they do a great vodka martini) that feature top-shelf liquor and locally distilled bitters shaken up nightly. Complementing its top-quality alcohol is the great bar food – come prepared with an empty stomach – and the set-up of the place itself: a drink at the bar means a front-row seat to the best people-watching in town.

The Library Bar

The Library Bar is renowned for its elegant setting. Located on the ground floor of the Norman Hotel, its 1940s-style decor and diverse cocktail and spirits menu make this an ideal spot for an evening drink. From a daiquiri made with Havana Club 3 rum, fresh-pressed lime and sugar, to a cosmopolitan made with citron vodka, Cointreau, lime and cranberry juice, expect classic cocktails and a chilled atmosphere in this Tel Aviv institution.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
