Tel Aviv Port

This is the new hot spot for some of the city’s most exclusive restaurants and shops- and all at a sea-side location. Namal Tel Aviv has become the center of city activity offering hangar-style spaces for both brand and boutique shopping, restaurants and bars (with magnificent sea views), hairstylists, alternative medical centers, surfing and diving shops, and wedding and banquet halls- all carefully designed with the goal of preserving the authenticity and history of the area.

 

Treat yourself to a healthy and bounteous Israeli breakfast at one of the many quality cafes and restaurants that dot the coastline. Ready to shop? These newly-restored hangars boast some of the best of Israeli fashion including the well-known Castro brand, as well as global names like Diesel, Blue Bird, and Levis. You’ll find a Mega Sports store on the premises, a huge Ace Hardware and coveted labels like Armani, Dolce and Gabana, and Miss Sixty. When you’ve exhausted all your shopping options, rejuvenate at one of the many spas located here.

Follow that pampering session with an evening at the namal after dark. Enjoy an aperitif at one of the restaurant bars such as Shalvata and continue the evening with a fine steak at Lehem Basar or fresh seafood dinner at Derbi port or the luxurious gourmet restaurant, Mul Yam.

Rothschild Boulevard

Americans have Fifth Avenue, the French have the Champs Elysees, and Israelis have Rothschild Boulevard.

 

Everything began in the 20’s when Tel Aviv started to expand towards Rothschild Boulevard with construction in the Eastern European style. In the 30’s even bigger change ensued when the Bauhaus style of architecture became popular and was widely used in the houses that border this luxurious boulevard. The distinctive European charm of Rothschild leaves its visitors with a thirst for more.

There are a number of important landmarks to be seen here and many of them are located near the Founder’s Monument next to 8 Rothschild. This is also the location of the first well of the city of Tel Aviv. Just a short walk away at 16 Rothschild stands a house that was built in 1910 and was the home of Ziona and Meir Dizengoff. Visit today and witness a full re-enactment of the declaration read in the voice of then- Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion.  Aside from its historical significance, the real jam is the Rothschild Boulevard promenade, which is a vivid and vibrant place where one may enjoy sitting areas and playgrounds. In the summer, visitors are treated to a variety of artistic exhibitions and musical events along this wide pedestrian path. The real charms of this street, however, are the many Bauhaus buildings that line the boulevard. In Rothschild Boulevard you’ll also find a myriad of restaurants and coffee houses that offer a culinary experience you should not miss.
