Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Tel Aviv

Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar
Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar offers not only one of the best drinking experiences in Tel Aviv, but it’s currently one of the best bars in the world.
Par Derriere
Paris meets Tel Aviv head on in this designer, courtyard wine bar.
Hashoftim
This fierce staple on the Tel Aviv bar scene has gained a dedicated, local following for its classic drinks selection, rock soundtrack and relaxed atmosphere.
Mendalimos
A laid-back local hotspot, where bar top dancing goes hand in hand with clandestine side-rooms and outdoor revelry seven nights a week.
Cordovero
This Spanish-inspired tapas and wine bar is a wondrous little gem, all the more for its secluded setting down a walkway in the trendy Florentin neighbourhood.
The Deli
This cloak and dagger mini-club attracts smart twenty-somethings seeking a steamy night out fuelled by its unique selection of cocktails.
Shila
A leading light in Tel Aviv's gastropub revolution.
Sex Boutique
An alternative option on gentrified Dizengoff Street, Sex Boutique's seamless extension from the sex shop below attracts artists and students alike.
Tomas
Jazz and Latin American beats blend with a dressy, mid-thirties crowd, particular about their wine selections.
Maoz
With an apartment styled backroom (complete with shower and kitchen), this world-music flaunting haunt is something of a sanctuary for informal hipness.
Margoza Bar
A local pub, for local people and any unsuspecting tourist looking to escape the hubbub of Jaffa's legendary flea market.
Bugsy
Tucked neatly into the arty, ripped jeans attire of the trendy Florentin neighbourhood, Bugsy (named after a famed Jewish gangster) flourishes with its simple menu and quaint tree-lined views.
Otto 45
A super-sized version of your casual, neighbourhood-type bar (complete with pool table) that's been so successful it's spawned two further sites across the city.
Patio Bar
Chilled out vibes outside.
Jaffa Bar
Jaffa Bar is a bit of a way from where most visitors spend their nights. And that is just where its charm lies.
Nylon
This street might have cult cinematic status but Nylon's cocktail bar annex and urban dance space looks set to attract its own following too.
La Champa
Cava arrived on Tel Aviv drinks menus back in the mid noughties and has grown in popularity since. Passed off as a fad, La Champa's dedicated site proves the Spanish sparkly is here to stay.
Tepale
Trip-hop, funk and huge windows add to the ambiance at this Jerusalem-style neighbourhood bar.
Tonic
A see and be seen neo-cabaret harkening to the days of Marlene Dietrich.
Gastropub
Perfect for the more mature crowd who need a little more substance with their style. Injected here with its preserved Bauhaus building and Mediterranean menu.
Brown Hotel Bar
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, an abundance of easily accessible rooftops, and an excess of hedonistic tendencies, Tel Aviv has more or less perfected the art of the memorable roof top party.
Peacock
Jeans and flip-flops are as standard as the chalkboard menus at this place, attracting the less trend-hungry Tel Avivians for a staple of beers, beats and Israeli microbrews.
Shampina
The best cure for a mid-summer night’s heat is champagne.
223
Mixology is hip. Speakeasy décor is hip. Respecting the smoking ban is hip. The 223 is hip. 
Taxidermy
Its visage of parking lot setting and drifter's dive exterior make this hip Horowitz joint the worst kept secret among any in-the-know Tel Avivian.
Hudna
Live acts, DJs and local drinks come as standard at this vast offering in the alternative Florentin neighbourhood...
Nanuchka
Revellers descend on this Eastern European rave-like cavern for vodka, Georgian delicacies and bar-stomping live music on a Sunday.
Dizzy Frishdon
This central hotspot keeps its preferences unique, opting to uphold the indoor smoking ban and keeping its lights well and truly shining -the perfect pit stop for a drink and some friendly flirting.
Shesek
The Shesek is your choice for a night's inaugural drink or for those in more of a musically focused mood.
Soda-Bar
Hot on the heels of another Berlin-inspired bar, this house music hideaway is a must for any alternative dance fan.
Hamoaz
You've been invited to a house party, make yourself at home...
