Friday nights in Tel Aviv - also - best places to stay

Hi,

A girlfriend and I are travelling to Israel in a month - our final night is a Friday night in Tel Aviv and we were hoping to have a bit of a night out on the town - however we reliase this is Shabbat - does this mean everywhere will be closed? If not - any recommendations?

Also - any tips on best areas to stay in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem?

Thanks in advance!

You will find plenty of places open to go out in Tel Aviv on a Friday night - I'll let others make suggestions.

Before we can make recommendations on where to stay - please give us an idea of your budget - please give dollar amounts and not descriptions such as "budget" "mid-range" as they all mean different things to different people.

Almost everything is open Friday night in Tel-Aviv - pubs, clubs and restaurants. Try the Tel-Aviv port area at the northern end of the City.

Also look in the Nightlife suggestions in the Tel-Aviv edition of Time-Out magazine:

Anywhere in the center of Tel-Aviv is a good location to stay. What is your budget ?

Thanks so much for our replies. Very excited to know things will be open on a Friday. Budget is about $200 a night, which doesn't seem to go too far- happy to go up a bit if our current budget is putting us in a dodgy area.

Try the "Hayarkon 48" hostel:

http://www.hayarkon48.com/

The Bnei Dan Youth Hostel is open to everyone and has private rooms:

http://www.iyha.org.il

It is a little further out but you can walk from there to the Port or take the #5 sherut to the centre of town (the sherut runs on Friday/Sat).

Here a picture of a #5 sherut on Yehuda HaMaccabi St. near the hostel"

And if you stay in the area of "Hayarkon 48" (much further south) you can always take the #4 sherut that goes up Allenby and Ben-Yehuda as far as the Tel-Aviv Port.

Last I saw, the Adiv was closed for "remodeling" - but is/was an excellent choice and location and in your budget. The nearby Maxim also good but make sure to get a double room to get a full size bathroom. The BW Regency is next door. All are close to the beach, Mike's Place and an easy ride/walk to the Port area for dinner
