For many people around the world Israel sounds like the most unlikely place to go on holiday. Most of the times when we hear about Israel the content is related to the Gaza strip conflict or other unpleasant associations.
The sad thing about this situation is the fact that Israel is actually a wonderful place to visit and Tel Aviv is one of the liveliest cities in the world. It is not for nothing that they call Tel Aviv: “the city the never dies”.
When tourists arrive to Tel Aviv they get a bit overwhelmed with all the places to go out to.
New clubs, restaurants and bars, open up every week and it is hard to know which are the best places to spend the night.
The people in Tel Aviv start partying already at 9 pm so make sure to come one time or else you will be standing in line all evening!
Here are the hottest places to party in Tel Aviv, which by its own people is called “Vegas of the east”:
1. Abraxas Bar/ Restaurant
Address: Lilienblum 40, 03-5104435
This place would be the perfect place to start your evening. Eyal Shani, the chef of the restaurant, is specially known for his deep love for tomatoes, (all the menu’s dishes contain tomatoes inside) and his unique personality.
From the moment the restaurant got open it became a huge success.
As Eyal has his own cooking show on TV, people already knew what to expect. Aside from amazing culinary experience the place itself is exactly what Tel Aviv is all about: warm, welcoming, busy, happy and vibrant.
2. Nanuchka Bar
Address: Lilenblum 30, 03-5162254
Here is another incredibly famous bar that not only offers a perfect view of all the beautiful people in town (and there are many of them in Tel Aviv!), but also provides yummy Georgian cuisine.
This place’s owner, (Nana) also got famous on TV. You don’t necessarily have to be famous to have a popular restaurant in Tel Aviv, but you need these owners’ passion and the desire to make people happy, which is the key ingredient to their success.
3. Gossip Club
Address: Dafna 6, 0546778102

Gossip club is by far the hottest place in Tel Aviv when it comes to trendy people, good music, flirty atmosphere and chic design.

4. Café Noir (bistro)
Address: Ehad Haam 43, 03-5663018
If you like something a bit more quiet and relaxed, Café Noir is the place for you. It’s a well respected brassiere located in of the heart of Tel Aviv city.
The crowd here is a bit more mature and reserved and you can be sure you will have a chill night without too much noise or loud drunk people.
Even though Café Noir is a bit overpriced and a little snobbish, it’s still worth visiting thanks to its amazing décor, delicious food and huge choice of imported and local wines.
5. Barby Concert Joint

The Barby doesn’t host commercial, trashy or too mainstream artists, the place is known for its quality acts and alternative crowd.
