How to Survive the Nightlife of Tel Aviv

Your trip to Israel will never be complete if you don’t visit Tel Aviv, especially if you are a party enthusiast—you must’ve heard about it. However, visiting is not your only way to go—you have to have fun, too! Tel Aviv City never sleeps at night. Therefore you should prepare yourself before heading out there. How do you exactly survive the night life of Tel Aviv? Here are some tips that you should always keep in mind.

Make sure that you’ve got enough sleep before you go to Tel Aviv. Take a nap because yawning at around 10 in the evening is prohibited there. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the party! Aside from that, Tel Aviv only opens at one in the morning so don’t go there before midnight because you will have to wait before you can party and socialize.

Dress according to your mood. Fortunately, there is no dress code in visiting Tel Aviv, therefore, you can rock your ripped jeans and a black tank top or your little black dress, or if you wanted to dress bohemian, then why not? Since this is a beach town, you can certainly wear whatever suits you the best.

Also, make sure that you have enough money in your pocket. Since this is one of the most popular and visited bars in Israel, it requires an entrance fee before you get to enjoy their amenities and also, always keep in mind that there is a big difference in the price of the vodka in the market and inside a bar. So make sure you don’t run out of money.

As much as possible, tip the bartenders as their salary is pretty small to earn a living and most of them are expectant to the tips of their customers. Aside from being nice and friendly, tipping them more than 12% of the actual price will make sure that they’ll recognize you again once you show up at the club.

While it’s not advisable to be there on time—you should not be late either because there is a long line waiting for you to get inside the gate. If you don’t like waiting, you could just list down your name on the attendant on the gate or if you know someone who works from the inside that might speed things up.

Make sure that you know how to order your drinks properly. While in Israel, their chaser refers to the shot—not the beer to follow the shot. And always keep in mind that shots are always doubles so you might as well enjoy whatever your bartender has poured for you. They do not usually use lemons in their cocktails so be wise at choosing your drinks.

If you don’t want to dance, then you could just sit at the bar and order food. While you are eating, you can rest assured that your bartender will keep on serving you alcohol and other beverages while being comfy at your seat.
