Jewish 2
Various facets of house music dominate at this concrete-walled, anything-goes hideaway.

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.

Cordelia
Classic French cuisine in an intimate, if idiosyncratic, venue - a welcome addition to Tel Aviv's busy tendencies.
Tamara Yogurt
If you take milk, add honey and make it really cool, you're looking at a fabulously modern Israeli dessert: frozen yoghurt. Experience it here, at one of the city's favoured dispensaries.
