While the wide diversity in nightlife options along the different districts of Tel Aviv entices the hedonistic nomad in us all, it is always good to keep the proverbial ‘ace in the hole’ close in hand. The Dizzy Frishdon, centrally located, smoke-free, and full of beautiful people, is the ultimate plan B. Without flexing its marketing muscles or needlessly expending energy on frivolous extras, the Dizzy manages to stay fresh and popular.
You’ll be able to spot the bar by the large amount of people standing outside. That is not the line to get in, but rather the smokers following a nationally mandated ban on smoking indoors. The Dizzy Frishdon remains as one of the only bars to fully uphold this law. Breaking with another Tel Avivian tradition, the Dizzy keeps its lights on as well, declaring that “our friends are good looking, and you should see them too!”. The crowd is a mix of charming beach bums, an endless march of film students, and delegates of the high-tech world aristocracy. The weekdays are best for meeting the locals, while the Thursday to Saturday scene may get muddled with the out of town audience. Yet overall, The Dizzy is your spot for getting a drink or two at the bar and making eye contact with a new friend.
