A bohemian bar set in the middle of Nachalat Binyamin – one of the most vibrant streets in Tel Aviv. This rooftop is the best place to sip a cocktail amongst the fairy lights while taking in the atmosphere. In the day the sounds and smells of Shuk Hacarmel drift up and in the evening this bar makes it’s own tunes. The food is delicious, the drinks are easy and the rooftop is the definition of Tel Aviv summer fun.
