Soothe your ears with real music
Tel Aviv is home to a variety of music venues. Some of the recommended music joints include the Camelot bar, and the Mann Auditorium. The Camelot bar is famous for featuring Israeli jazz and rock bands, located in Shalom Alekheim Street. For classical aficionados, check out the Mann Auditorium over at Huberman street, where the renowned Israel Philharmonic Orchestra creates magic with their music.
Dance the night away
The nightlife of Tel Aviv will not be complete without the adrenaline-kicking beats mashed up in hotspots where the party begins. Hit the Moadron Hateatron situated in Jerusalem Blvd. for a youthful club vibe. Over at Rambam Street, Fetish mixes you a fusion of house, jazz, and funk in their tasteful club tracks, usually during Wednesdays and Fridays. For the free-spirited liberalists, check out the Vox dance venue, where they hold themed events that celebrates gay pride.
Hit the theatre
For the film buff, experience Israeli film production over at the New Cameri Theatre in Shaul Hamelech Boulevard. The theatre features popular English-translated production weekly. You may also want to check out the Cinematheque at Spinzak Street where you can watch full-length and short Israeli films, screened with English subtitles. For mainstream and newly-released Hollywood blockbuster films, you may hit the Dizengoff Centre or Gordon.
Experience Tel Aviv’s street culture and festivals
For a feel of the Israeli flower power, visit the hip city in mid August and join the biggest street party held for 4 days each year. This staged event called the Jaffa nights, entertains with 70’s music, art exhibitions, and dance interpretations. For wine lovers, hit the scene in October to experience the 2-day wine festival with performances by various musicians over at the Rishon Le-Zion.
It’s always interesting to explore worlds that excite one’s curiosity and thirst for life. But perhaps what makes Tel Aviv so compelling to experience, is the fact that it resides inside a religious sanctuary. And although the devotion to their beliefs and traditions are intact, it is fascinating how one city represents the liberalist side of Israel that has an appreciation for celebrating life.
