Dizengoff Street has always been the embodiment of Tel Aviv street culture, and is home to Israeli fashion designers and International favorites, as well as numerous coffee shops and local bars. The northern part of Dizengoff is known for an array of exclusive name-brand bridal boutiques and brides-to-be come here from all over the country to shop for that special gown. To the east of northern Dizengoff is Basel Street.
The Basel area has become a favorite area for shopping enthusiasts in recent years, as the main circle is peppered with many chic shops in the midst of a welcoming neighborhood atmosphere. Two important Dizengoff landmarks which should not go unmentioned are at the southern end of the street: the colorful fountain at Dizengoff square and the famous Dizengoff Center shopping mall. Dizengoff Square hosts a flea market every Tuesday and Friday where you can snag a unique antique or second-hand dress at bargain prices.
Dizengoff Center, located at the corner of Dizengoff and King George Streets is home to top-brand fashion, sporting goods, computing, and house ware shops, as well as book stalls, flower stores, jewelry kiosks, and much more. Visit on Thursday or Friday and make the rounds of the International Food Fair on the main level, where you can sample authentic world and Israeli cuisine in a bustling and vibrant atmosphere. After all that walking, stop by one of the delicious fruit-shake kiosks on Dizengoff, particularly the one at the corner of Dizengoff and Ben-Gurion Blvd., which is known for its interesting mixes and cool local vibe. If you want to mingle with the local celebs, check out Moving at 340 Dizengoff where you can rent your favorite DVD on the second floor. Pop back in the evening to sample some of the restaurants and late-night bars featuring live music, and enjoy the best of Dizengoff Israeli nightlife.
Sheinkin Street which begins at the triangle junction of Allenby and King George Streets. Sheinkin is home to Tel Aviv’s bohemia and has a vibe all its own.
The street is lined with boutiques featuring some of the country’s most talented and eclectic designers as well as global brand-name fashion houses. Israeli women shop here for the wide and unique range of shoes and accessories. Sheinken is also known for its vast array of dining venues and cafes.
Take a much needed shopping break at some of the hippest and most diverse restaurants and coffee shops in Tel Aviv. You sit here to see….and be seen! A visitor to Sheinkin will be treated to a glimpse of every kind of Israeli that exists: young, old, religious, secular, punks, gay couples, Arabs, Jews, and many, many more.
