Restaurants and Cocktail Bars

TLV Culinary Trip

No doubt, Tel-Aviv is considered as one of the best culinary destination in the world.
After receiving thousand of questions on my Instagram account, I am happy to present to you my favorite cocktail bars, brunch, Restaurants and bars in Tel-Aviv.


Imperial Bar

This award-winning bar is a MUST when you visit Tel-Aviv.
The people behind this place describe it as a temple to the lost art of the cocktail, and indeed- every cocktail is a piece of art, with a lot of thought and creativity behind it.
The kitchen is Asian-style, and the happy hour (Sunday-Thursday 18:00-20:00) Offers 1+1 on the drinks and swing jazz music.
This is a small bar, great for couples and small group, who really appreciate cocktails, and loves dark and inspiring places that leaves you desperate to visit again.
Making a reservation is a must, and I recommend to do it as soon as you can.

Happy Hour: 18:00-20:00
HaYarkon St 66, Tel Aviv-Yafo

La Otra

Just a few steps away from the Imperial Bar, also hidden within the Imperial hotel, you can find this happy and colorful bar, Mexico City in the heart of Tel-Aviv.
I just recently came back from a great trip to Mexico, and here I could find Mexico’s flavors and atmosphere- finally!
The place is beautifully designed, the music is happy and so are the people, the food is delicious and the cocktails are great!
It’s recommended to make a reservation, to ensure a table.

HaYarkon St 66, Tel Aviv-Yafo


Bushwick is an all day bar, from coffee till cocktail, the perfect hangout in the heart of Tel Aviv.
I went there for dinner and drinks, and completely fell in-love.
When you visit this place- come hungry, because the food is just brilliant! The cocktails are good, yummy and simple, the decoration is lovely, and the service is the best in Tel-Aviv.
It’s recommended to make a reservation, to ensure a table.

Nahalat Binyamin St 28, Tel Aviv-Yafo

BellBoy Cocktail Bar

This bar is INSANELY COOL!
Every cocktails tells a story, and originality is the name of the game here.
Ask the bartender to make a cocktail tailor-Made to your taste, and you won’t be disappointed.
The food is also great, and completes the experience, next to the awesome cocktails.
Making a reservation is a must, and I recommend to do it in advance, since the bar might be fully booked for weeks.

Happy Hour: 18:00-20:00
Hotel B Berdichevsky
Berdyczewski St 14, Tel Aviv-Yafo

BellBoy Brunch

WOW, What a brunch!
Every weekend, the dark BellBoy Bar transforms to a beautiful garden, full of flowers and butterflies.
The brunch offers great little plates, main dish and a morning cocktail.
Highly recommended!

Hôtel de Ville

A Parisian restaurant with a nice twist in the heart of TLV.
This is a romantic place, great for couples, but also family dinners.
The food id great, the cocktails are lovely, this is all you can ask from a top restaurant in Tel-Aviv.

Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday 12:00-19:00 (20% on the cocktails)
Dizengoff St 230, Tel Aviv-Yafo


One of my FAVORITE cocktail bars in Tel-Aviv, with the AMAZING cocktail “Call me Chili”, that I just can’t get enough of!
You can find here the eternal classic cocktails, along with surprising seasonal ones, that can always put a smile on my face.
This place is quite small, but if you are a big group- you can ask to reserve a table at the second floor. If you are 2-3 people, I recommend to ask for a sit at the bar, and enjoy the magic show of the bartenders.
The food is also delicious.

Happy Hour: 18:00-20:00
Dizengoff St 223, Tel Aviv-Yafo


This crazy-awesome bar, made me question myself- Am I really in Tel-Aviv? Maybe I somehow landed in Tokyo? Am I dreaming?
This “Alice in Wonderland” theme bar is INSANE.
The beauty is in the small details, and every little detail here is a masterpiece.
The cocktails are exciting, the food is TOP quality and original, and once you leave- you immediately want to come back.
Don’t, and I repeat- DO NOT forget to visit the toilet (!) Thank me later.

This cafe is a haven of old time America in the heart of Tel Aviv, with a unique mix of nostalgic food, design and music. Its warm inviting interior and intimate back patio provide a romantic feel and a break from the big city.

A local food bar, with AWESOME energies, beautiful garden and cold-cold drinks. I absolutely Love this bar.
The Bicicletta offers two great spaces: the big summary urban garden, the dark-sexy bar floor, with a local DJ, long bar and great music.
The Chef’s name is Avia, and I’m IN-LOVE with her food!

This place is a MUST!

Fat Cow

This awesome place by the Chef Tom Aviv is, without any doubt, my favorite burger in TLV.
The menu offers 5 different burger options, each and everyone of them is great. I would highly recommend the “DISTRUCTED” burger, order it and get a bit messy.

Dizengoff St 265, Tel Aviv-Yafo


A lovely cocktail bar on Dizengoff.
This place is the ultimate place for a date or a night out with your friends. We even celebrated there a birthday once (20 people), and the experience was PERFECT.
The cocktails are yummy and original, and the food is so good!!!
The desserts are mind blowing, not only yummy, but also surprising, colorful, original and fun.
Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday 17:00-20:00 (Until 21:00 at the inner bar – Whoop whoop!)
