Its dynamic all-night party scene has earned it the title of ‘the city that never sleeps’. Topping global lists of the best party cities in the world, Tel Aviv, a destination with an effervescent nightlife and high-adrenaline dance floors, is the ultimate in cool.
Its clubs play every genre of music, from dance, electro and house to rock, pop and reggae, and attracts partygoers and performers from all backgrounds.
Part club, part live-music venue, Pasaz (also known as ‘The Passage’) is an underground nightclub tucked away on Allenby Street. The epitome of chill, Pasaz has a shabby chic, unpretentious interior where music is the main attraction. Open seven nights a week, the club has a busy schedule that includes a Sunday Blues ‘n’ Booz Live Jam and Wednesday Live Indie shows, and an electropop LGBT night every Tuesday. Arrive at midnight when the club is starting to fill to capacity, grab a cold beer at the bar and rub shoulders with a quintessentially Tel Avivian crowd.
Named for its original location on Haoman Street 17, this club is part of a group of venues across Israel. The Tel Aviv megaclub, which opened in 2005 in the southern part of the city, is one of the largest party spots in town, and a haven for the LGBT community who regularly flock to Haoman 17’s events, including the Forever parties hosted as part of Pride Week. There are two spacious, strobe-lit dance floors, a raised DJ booth for special-guest performances and breezy outdoor spaces.
Enjoy hip-hop, rock, 1990s hits and more at Duplex. Located at the heart of the Florentin neighbourhood and open only on Thursdays and Fridays, Duplex hosts an enviable line-up of DJs and pop-themed dance parties. Partygoers can dance all night long on its three lit floors or relax on its rooftop terrace.
Vibrant and bursting with energy, Ismi Salma, Arabic for ‘my name is Salma’, is a North African-style club that offers a mix of DJs, spinning electro tropical, hip-hop, soul and funk. The entrance to the club is via a side street off Dizengoff Street and its luxe decor, light bites menu and wide selection of drinks attract a variety of thrill-seeking partygoers every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
