Dizengoff street is one of the prime streets of Tel Aviv where you will find many stores, cafes and bars. All the bars look more or less the same and what determines where you will end up sitting probably depends on the best happy hour and if the high chairs have a back rest (most bars don’t!)
My favorite neighborhood bar Fasada, just a few blocks away from my apartment is super fun. They have great Happy Hour between 19:00 – 21:00, 1+1 on all drinks and the food at 30% discount.
They give the Israeli bar food a twist and offer small plates of beetroot hummus, shawarma and a delicious trio of different cheese bruschetta.
They are always packed so you better grab a seat (with a back rest!!!), before 20:00 and spend an early summer night drinking a nice cocktail or an Israeli beer.
What makes Fasada my favorite bar on Dizengoff, other than the cool music, slick young decor and the great happy hour, is that the crowd are Tel-Avivians my age (late 20’s- early 30’s), whereas most of the other bars are visited by a relatively younger crowd that often lives outside of Tel Aviv.
Most of the seats are outside in a communal style so it’s always fun to have some nice people sit next to you, and since it’s very local you will hear Hebrew and probably be invited to join the conversation, as Israelis are very friendly and curious to meet new people!
