The perfect spots in Tel Aviv to take a first date
Hidden inside the Imperial Hotel, the Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar is the top of the top when it comes to craft cocktails. This temple to the lost art of cocktail goes back to the source, featuring veteran bartenders from the younger years of the White City. With an Asian-colonial inspired kitchen and a wide range of music from jazz to rock n’ roll, it’s no coincidence Imperial was crowned Drinks International magazine’s ‘Best Bar in Africa and the Middle East.’
Par Derriere is a romantic wine bar, divided into intimate spaces, each with a unique atmosphere. In the front section, designed to look like a European café and delicatessen, visitors can purchase products for take home. Inside, an intimate wine bar that sits adjacent to an open area, where smoking is allowed. The left hosts Kibbutz dining-hall style tables and chairs and further back sits a room for private events. The highlight is a magically designed garden out back, perfect for date night. The drink menu contains a large selection of fine wines, imported drinks and artistic cocktails. Dine on tapas or a finely crafted salad, a specialty Italian dish or one of the other fine menu items, such as roast beef carpaccio, chicken liver pate or a cheese platter. Finish off with a delectable dark chocolate mousse, crême brulée or Nutella pancake with banana and nuts.
Dark lighting, intimate seating along the bar and an utterly romantic atmosphere make Jajo a great choice for dates, romance or drinking with pals.
Hip and happening in the funky Florentin neighborhood, Dalida is a trendy place to see—and be seen. It offers a creative take on local fare with an eclectic menu that features an abundance of salads, colorful mezze and fresh seafood.

Botanika also offers a variety of dishes that emphasize local products, plus a large selection of Israeli wines and micro-brews. Whether you fancy a cocktail with girlfriends, a wine-infused first date or some local beer with the boys, Botanika is the place for you.
