Living It Up in Jaffa

Those seeking exciting dining and nightlife have more to find in Tel Aviv’s Jaffa than ever before

For a night out in Jaffa, check out the gay-friendly Anna Loulou Bar for its nightly DJ sets and expansive menu of cocktails.
The renaissance that’s made Israel’s Tel Aviv more desirable and expensive over the past ten years has also breathed new life into the city’s more affordable fringes, like Old Jaffa.

The picturesque area that served as the town’s port for centuries is an easy 15-minute walk from the city’s center and appeals to a younger demographic who brings with it artistic know-how and entrepreneurial spirit. Once-deteriorated neighborhoods have been transformed into a thriving artists’ district brimming with restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and flea markets, making it an ideal destination for anyone looking for an evening out.

Take your pick of international fare from the food court in the new Jaffa Port Market where harbor-side dining and an Israeli craft brewery make it a perfect place to set up for the night.

Extreme diners might get a kick out of Blackout, a restaurant where you eat your meal in pitch-black conditions – but only if you can find your fork.

If you want some music with your meal, head to the bar at the Main Bazar. It’s constructed from reclaimed piano parts and serves as a befitting spot from which to listen to tunes spun by a live DJ while enjoying small plates like bruschetta and chili-glazed cauliflower. A massive boat hanger on the port is home to the Container – hip restaurant and bar that’s also a stylish live music and art venue.
