Eat, drink, and dance the night away in Tel Aviv.
Oh, and don"t forget to hit
the beach.
(Photo:"Frederic Soltan/Corbis)Tel Aviv is truly a city of
contrasts.
It"s young and hip with nightlife that doesn"t even pause when the
sun comes up.
Yet, in so many ways, the city still maintains a mature spirit
of history, culture and elegance.A quick warning—the denizens of Tel
Aviv can appear brash, but it"s worth breaking down their stony and impossibly
self-confident exteriors.
Once you do, the locals are "truly dedicated to
showing you the very best their city has to offer.Before you even land at Ben
Gurion airport you have to follow"@Telavivian on Instagram for the latest
gallery openings, specialty cocktail creations and pop-up parties? "If you
want an even deeper dive into the city, sign up for one of the Telavivian
tours, which provide a true insider"s deep dive into everything local from
street art to indie beer to Tel Aviv"s strangest people.Tel Aviv is quickly
encroaching on New York City"s title for the""City that Never Sleeps." There
is something to do here 24/7."Here is our guide to prepare for the perfect
night out in Israel"s hottest city.2 pmUzi-Eli the""Etrog Man" has the perfect
pre-party elixir.
(Photo: Uzi-Eli The Citronman/Facebook)Fuel up for a big
night out with the "Etrog Man." You"ll find Uzi-Eli, a Yemeni healer by trade,
at his juice stand at the opening of the Carmel market.
Get here early because
after the workday ends a line begins wending its way outside of the
shop.
These "self-proclaimed "juice addicts" can"t get enough of Uzi"s magical
elixir of etrog fruit, a biblical super-fruit that does it all—gives
you energy, makes you look younger and even increases fertility.3 pmSoak up
some sun and curl your toes in the sand down at the beach.

the beach.
Most visitors don"t realize that it is summer for ten months of the
year in Tel Aviv.Head down to the beach for an afternoon dip and
paddleboard.
Grab a snack at one of the to-die-for beachfront restaurants
where you can bury your toes in the sand while enjoying a delicious local wine
from the Zichron Yaakov wine country just an hour"s drive outside the city.
"4
pmBike along the beach down to Old Jaffa.
(Photo:"Atlantide
Phototravel/Corbis)Israelis love exercise.
It"s not uncommon to see men and
women of all ages starting their morning workouts on the beach promenade well
before the sun rises.
Take a queue out of their play book (we promise you
don"t need to showcase your own six-pack abs while you"re at it) and take a
healthy walk (or a ride on Tel Aviv"s bike share) down the beach path to the
old port of Jaffa, built into the high cliffs bordering the glassy
Mediterranean.
"Get your art fix at the Ilana Goor Museum in Old
Jaffa.

Pop into the Ilana Goor museum in
Old Jaffa, an architectural gem built in the 18th Century.
It was once an inn
for pilgrims en route to Jerusalem and a factory for olive oil cosmetics
before it was purchased by the artist Ilana Goor in 1983.
Today the building
houses an eclectic collection of Goor"s own modernist art in addition to
contemporary art from around the world.You deserve to have dessert before
dinner.
Pop into"The Capitolina ice cream shop where ice cream maestro Yair
Sharon crafts an incredible real Italian gelato."Once your sugar-fix is in
hand weave your way through the narrow alleyways down to the port and grab a
table on the balcony at The Old Man and the Sea (Hangar 1, Jaffa Port) to soak
in the sunset over the skyline before you head back downtown.
Have you had the
hummus in Tel Aviv yet? If not then the Old Man and the Sea is the perfect
place to indulge.
Order up some of Israel"s unofficial national dish in
addition to some pickled cabbage, tabbouleh and falafel with a side of fresh
out of the stone oven pita bread.7 pmWalk around Florentin and check out the
shops, street art, and bars.

Hop in a taxi (Tel Aviv
has both Uber and GetTaxi) to the up and coming neighborhood of
Florentin.
Stroll the narrow streets of this part of town and you"ll
understand why young Israelis are flocking here in droves.Thrillist recently
named the neighborhood the second most""hipster" neighborhood in the
world."Florentin is home to a vibrant street art scene.
(Photo:"galit
seligmann / Alamy Stock Photo)"In a city already known for its Bauhaus-style
architecture, inspired street art, and 24-hour nightlife, Florentin"s the
go-to spot for artists, musicians, and people who dress like artists and
musicians," Thrillist"explained.Related: Is This Really One of the Top Hipster
Neighborhoods on the Planet?Even after dark, you"ll be able to soak in the
incredible street art decorating the walls.Head to hipster haven Hoodna for a
pre-dinner beer or two.
(Photo: Hoodna Bar/Facebook)There are so many options
for a pre-dinner cocktail here that it"s hard to choose just one.
For
something simple, but truly original head to"Hoodna Bar, a low-key pub carved
out of an actual carpenter"s workshop.If you"re into a spot that is a little
more upscale try Aria on the outskirts of the neighborhood where mixologist
Custer Thompson serves his famous Bloody Mary with a side of bone
marrow.Related: Why I Feel Safe as a Tourist in Tel Aviv9 pm
HaShulhan is the
place to go for a beautiful and delicious fusion dinner.

Rothschild Boulevard will be buzzing with activity.
Make sure to have a stroll
before you settle in for dinner at HaShulhan (73 Rothschild Blvd) for chef
Omer Miller"s global cuisine—egg schnitzel in garam masala, polenta
cannelloni with crab bisque or a hearty chicken stew in a spicy broth.11
pm
Pull up a stool at Moonshine for some truly unique cocktail
creations.
(Photo: Moonshine/Facebook)Step directly into the "Great Gatsby" at
Moonshine (43 Lilienblum St), a true speakeasy with no street signage.
To
enter the bar go through the restaurant next door, fumble about a bit, look
for some foreboding curtains and follow the very well-dressed people.
The
small bar can fit just about 20."Cocktails are obviously prepared in mason
jars and most of them contain some form of the bar"s original house-made
moonshine, infused with flavors like maple and honey ginger."Be sure to try
the tequila-based moonshine to really start your evening off with a kick.1
