You’ve exhausted every corner in the legendary Jaffa flea market. You’ve had your fill of tapas at yet another recently opened restaurant by the port. You just want a friendly, neighborhood bar to nurse that final drink of the night; a venue where actual locals spend their hard-earned shekels. Go find Margoza, your venue for momentary salvation.
Located in one of the livelier streets intersecting the famed flea market, Margoza Bar has quickly become the area’s popular, no-frills after-hours option. The bar can easily be identified by the crowd of patrons spilling from its doors out to the street. Generally, Tel Aviv is quite lax in terms of noise and public areas. Only an official complaint would cause the police to end events and unregistered festivities. Owners of the Margoza and nearby establishments keep this in mind as they host live performances, DJs, and the occasional street party. Even on a regular night, expect a vibrant scene of beautiful people sharing bottles of wine, simple pub-fare, and a lighthearted rock music soundtrack. Occasionally, a dog or two from the neighboring table may come by to rub against your leg. If you unconsciously pet the dog before taking another sip of your drink, you know you are on your way to becoming a local.
