Florentin neighborhood guide
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.
Located in the Florentin district in Tel Aviv, 600 metres from Suzanne Dellal Dance Show Centre, Neve Tzedek, Florentin House is a eco-friendly property with a restaurant, a shared lounge area with kitchen, and free WiFi throughout. The rooms are spacious and come with an en suite bathroom with shower. Some also have a terrace or a balcony.
This sweet mezcal bar has been serving the hipster neighborhood of Florentin for years. It started as a small neighbourhood bar which then began to receive so much love that the owners eventually had to take over the next door shop to expand the much loved establishment. Mezcal has stood the test of time. The tacos are sensational and wash down wonderfully with the fully stocked variety of tequilas. From tequila tastings to delicious and authentic enchiladas, Mezcal offers a magical meal for all who come and embrace the Mexican cuisine.

Running the length of Levinsky Street in South Tel Aviv, Shuk Levinsky has a massive range of products, from dried fruit to soaps, spices and nuts. The Levinsky Market is filled with cuisine from cultures all around the world and has ingredients that provide the perfect addition to just about any meal. Among the stores to visit are bakeries, delicatessens and restaurants. Certain shops and restaurants are unique to the shuk, and cannot be found anywhere else in Tel Aviv. The magic Shuk Levinsky lies in the deep history of culinary growth and discovery, stories that continue to appeal to local residents and foreign visitors alike.
Commercializing an essentially anti-establishment outdoor art form runs the risk of compromising its character. Yet, bringing them indoors assures the works’ permanence, allows admirers to own them and helps the artists monetize their talent.
Chef Avivit Priel Avichai (formerly of Tapeo) and her partner Limor Lami opened Ouzeria less than ten years ago to much critical acclaim. Known as a modern "hamara", a meeting place to drink, play and discuss life, Ouzeria is the classic Florentin neighborhood joint. At Ouzeria Avivit and Limor serve original, Mediterranean-style cuisine accompanied by a simple decor and an appealing long bar offering a selection of anis beverages. Take a seat at the assorted tables beside large windows looking out on the colorful Levinsky district, and soak in the uniquely Israeli atmosphere of the neighboring market. The playlist of music travels from east to west, new to old, encompassing world music, Middle-Eastern music and on to innovative contemporary tunes. Avivit and Limor's goal was to create a refuge from the activities of the day, and they have successfully done so.
