Cat And Dog
Occasionally, the crave for curated sleaze arises; dark interiors, raw engulfing DJ beats and smoke-drenched spaces that rise to life hours after bedtime. The original Breakfast Club, which has recently re-opened since being unwillingly shut down in 2008, once reigned as king in this alternative facet of Tel Aviv’s nightlife. Yet it is the Cat And Dog that had inherited the role of a haven for those whose day starts only at sundown. Featuring the country’s leading electronic music artists, as well as drawing significant names form around the world, the uniquely named club has solidified its role as a hedonist’s destination of choice.
Venture down the narrow stairs to an elongated space bound by four black walls. Television screens projecting random videos and mirrors displaying smoked tinged versions of you break up the darkness, while written poetic snippets decorate the bar area. Expect a crowd of late twenties to late thirties dancing to house-centric music, waiting in long queues for the bathrooms, or resting in the lounge area to the back of the club. The party won’t get going until two in the morning, so consider your visit in The Cat and Dog another late night in Tel Aviv.
