This cute little bar is an elegant contrast to the raucous partying of much of Tel Aviv’s night scene.
In a hip location on bar-heavy Lilienblum Street – with an elegant, inviting interior of dark wood, leather and soft lighting – this is a great spot to stop off for a few pre-club drinks. Alternatively, settle down for a mellow evening of cold martinis and soft jazz, and while the night away in style.
