This neighbourhood is not touted in any of the Tel Aviv tourist brochures, the way its next door neighbour, Neve Tzedek, is. Few of the 50 to 70-year-old buildings have been renovated, though here, in terms of density, is Tel Aviv's largest concentration of Bauhaus architecture.

This is the place to go for the trendiest and exciting restaurants in Tel Aviv. From vegetarian, to Persian, to just plain creative food, indulge yourself. You will also find the Levinsky Spice Market in this neighborhood. Filled with exotic spices and dried fruits, entice your senses.

This is an old small neighborhood on the southern side of Tel Aviv. It used to be neglected but in the last decade it was renovated and many young Israelis moved in and live their. It is fun walking around the neighborhood's streets, looking at the cool graffitis and enjoying the many cafes and restaurants. Also, it is interesting to... More

We rented our first apartment in this neighborhood of Tel Aviv. The area gave us a mixed feeling – from the one side we saw a funky area with the art galleries and bars and restaurants. And from another side we saw the Arabic grocery & fruits/veggies shops and lots of unfinished constructions. We still enjoyed walking around and feel... More

Here is a new area we just explored. It is a hip area where art galleries, cafes and lots of murals painted on vacant walls decorate the street. It is not graffiti, as much of it is created by well known street artists. Worth a walk there before it becomes gentrified and disappears

Located in the southern parts of the city, this neighbourhood, with its old ramshackle houses and eclectic bars and eateries, caters to all tastes and pockets. It is a fun place to walk around during the day and great for drinks or dinner in the evening.

The neighborhood is slowly changing, but still rough around the edges. There are small, interested places scattered throughout, including a Mexican place with tequila and mezcal, and a milkshake bar.

Florentine has a lot happening, there are a lot of early 20th architectural gems, the old levinski market, ancient beer dispensery shops, spice shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, tons of incredible grafitty and as someone mentioned - a lot of dog poo... So keep your eyes open... You can start your day at levinsky market, progress to florentin street and washington... More

The flip side of being a "cool" neighborhood full of yuppies on a budget is that everyone has a dog. The problem here is that there exists some kind of cultural regression when it comes to cleaning up after your canine. It us the dirtiest area of the city, and you need to literally walk with your eyes on the... More
