Tel Aviv is Israel’s self-proclaimed city of love–sure, Paris has dimly lit winding streets and romantic appeal, but Tel Aviv has an alcohol-infused culture and unabashed local nature. From beaches and parks to bars and movie theaters, (almost) anywhere in the White City is fair game to get cozy or go in for a kiss. Whether it’s the month of Tu B’av–Israel’s very own Valentine's Day–or a weekday in October, head to any of these spots for a good ol’ tongues-down-each-others'-throats makeout sesh.

The beach

Get in some steamy, sexy, and… sandy action on any one of Tel Aviv’s beaches. Whether it’s 11:00 a.m. or p.m., anything goes on the White City’s coastline, from Gordon to Frishman. After all, there’s a reason they call it “Sex on the Beach.”

Imperial Cocktail Bar

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.’

Whether you’re stumbling out of a Shalvata with someone you just met, or stopping for a cold drink on your couples bike ride, the Tel Aviv Port is a visually pleasing place to go in for a kiss.

Park HaYarkon

In Park HaYarkon people are doing it on boats, at the back of concerts, and even while hovering in hot air balloons–and yes, I do mean making out. The White City’s own Central Park might not be the location for Sex and the City tapings, but it sure is the spot for many Tel Avivians’ romantic endeavors.

Lev Theatre

Return to the days of middle school, and snag a kiss at this hidden theater. Although making out anywhere else in Dizengoff Center would not be advised (except possibly the elephant slide), the peace and privacy of the Lev Tel Aviv make it an ideal place to cozy up. Plush seats plus popcorn always equals the perfect makeout spot.

Overlooking the city of Tel Aviv, this seaside park in Jaffa provides an ideal romantic setting. Walking distance from tasty eateries and hip bars, go to this park after a date, or meet up here for a picnic in the park. Marvel at the sight of the White City, the stars, an outdoor movie–or simply each other.

No matter where you start your post-date stroll, all roads lead to Habima. Located in the heart of the city center, there’s something magical and serene about the dimly lit central fountain and surrounding plots of flowers. The addition of lounge chairs (and even a hammock at the end of Rothschild Boulevard!) make this plaza a makeout worthy locale almost hidden from the surrounding hustle and bustle of the city.

Kiryat Sefer

When the Tel Aviv municipality decided to built the Kiryat Sefer park in the heart of the city, instead of building another housing complex, the people living in the area could finally take a breath of fresh air...literally. The park, a green lung in the middle of one of the most densely populated area of the city, was something the neighbors around were waiting for for a long time. Today, the park is filled with happy kids running around the playground and grassy area. There are fish pools, an outdoor gym, and even a dog park next door. Kiryat Sefer Park is the perfect place to escape to when looking for a moment of peace in the center of Tel Aviv.
