InterContinental David Tel Aviv
Walk along the beachfront promenade heading south towards the historic Old Jaffa until you reach Jaffa Port. Explore the port with its many cutting-edge restaurants, avant-garde art galleries, and design and performance spaces. From Jaffa's port you can easily walk to the old city of Jaffa where I recommend getting lost through the windy zodiac sign streets and discovering the beautiful boutiques and museums that are scattered all over. Then continue to the colorful flea market to look around the many stalls selling antiques, jewelry, second-hand items, and much more. This market is open Sunday to Friday from 10am till late afternoon.
At the rear of the hotel is Shabazi Street where you will find the district of Neve Tzedek, the hidden gem of the city and ‘SoHo’ of Tel Aviv. It's full of beautiful designer shops, little cafés and fine restaurants. One café in particular is Dallal, serving up French Israeli cuisine in an intimate setting and also featuring a fresh bakery with delicious pastries that can be enjoyed over coffee. Inside this area you will find the Suzanne Dellal Performing Arts Center which is the premier presenter of Israeli and International contemporary dance companies and is well worth a visit. Shops and galleries are open in this neighborhood from Sunday to Thursday between 10:00 to19:00 Friday from 10:00 to 15:00 and Saturdays shops are closed.
Rothschild Boulevard is the hot spot of the city and the place to see and be seen. The boulevard has developed into one of the city’s most luxurious and popular areas housing newly built sky scrapers next to old eclectic Bauhaus architectural style buildings. Rothschild Blvd. is the perfect place to stroll around and discover the many restaurants, bars and cafes this area has to offer. Start the evening with dinner at the Social Club, a modern bistro featuring a menu made with local ingredients, and experience highly-renowned chef, Michael Gartofsky delicious cuisine. For after dinner cocktails continue to Otto, one of the hottest spot in town, and taste some of their delicious drinks made my exporter mixologists while enjoying great music. For more recommendations, consult with the hotel's concierge.
