Since its earliest days, Tel Aviv was a destination of choice for waves of immigrants from throughout the world. This stream of ideas and abilities kept Tel Aviv constantly revitalized and evolving. Immigration to the White City from within Israel has been equally as important, as youths sought cosmopolitan thrills following their military service and the requisite post-army trip abroad. The Tepale, founded by a group of friends from Jerusalem nostalgic for their hometown pub culture, embodies this diversity within Israel, while offering a great place for a Friday afternoon beer.
Straddling the intersection of King George and Shlomo Hamelech Streets, the round-corner structure offers the perfect location for taking in the urban safari. The indoor bar area is quite small, with a central bar-top dominating the apace, yet feels larger due to the immense windows wrapped around much of the hall. The wooden deck extending from the open windows offers additional sitting room, as well as a perch for smokers.
Billed as a Jerusalem style neighborhood bar, expect a crowd of young professionals seeking a local draft beer and a conversation with friends. T-shirts and jeans will be the sartorial norm, while a mix of trip-hop and funk will resound throughout the night.
