My wife and I have enjoyed speakeasies all over the world. BellBoy and it's inner sanctum Butler are among the best. The cocktails , environment and overall experience are everything a speakeasy lover wants. The bartenders take their craft seriously and every sip of every drink I had was delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. Food is available as well.

BellBoy is great but I specifically want to recommend Butler to you. It's a speakeasy within the speakeasy. It is small, maybe room for ten. The bartender was amazing! I didnt catch her name but she is a young Russian woman. Her craft cocktails were powerful and delicious.In fact, I never ordered off the menu. I simply told her what I liked and trusted her judgement...she was never wrong. She maintained great conversation with everyone at the bar and, while I will never see her again, I felt like I was leaving an old friend when we left. Truly a great experience that we will never forget.

A dark cocktail bar that is very serious about its cocktails, which come in extravagant vessels made for Instagram. The food is made of small tapas of the same flavor: there is a burger served in a bird cage and duck pate molded into the shape of a rubber duckie. Everything is well executed and delicious, but also pricy and a bit smug. Worth checking out but not for everyone.

This place has gone down! What used to be a very special and unique experience disappointed us last night on our date night.
We waited 5 mins outside until the host took us to our table. Then another 15 mins until we could order. There was only 1 waiter and 1 bartender when we arrived (for happy hour) at 1830.
Finally got our first round after 25 min wait. Then we were able to order our food.
We quickly realised we need to order out next round asap.
The food was tasty.
The drinks were nothing special (we tried 4 different cocktails).
Had to cancel our 3rd round because it was taking too long and we had to leave (waited 20 mins and still didnt receive).
The bill came to 350 sh and tbh, I will not be returning anytime soon.
Shame, because it's really beautiful.
Go to Fantastic instead.

Disappointing experience at Butler. We are big fans of BellBoy and decided to try their bar within a bar, Butler last night. They called us earlier in the evening to tell us that we were the only guests with reservations and if we wanted to change to Bellboy. We decided to stick with the original plan. On arrival, Butler was full and we were given 2 seats facing a wall in the back of the bar. Very odd and unfortunate start.

The bar is nicely appointed and has a great 20s era speakeasy vibe. The bartender, Dasha, was nice and asked us a couple of questions -- not about the kind of drinks we liked, but personality questions in order to come up with a drink for us. The drink was well made, but not particularly my taste profile, which would have been much easier to guess if she asked what alcohol or drinks I like. We had 3 drinks each, all "off the menu" on her recommendation -- in fact, we never saw a drinks menu. Not a big deal and trusting a talented craft cocktail maker is part of the experience.

When it came time for the bill, the bartender told us she had a confession... 4 of the drinks we ordered were made using premium spirits and cost an extra 12 shekels (4 dollars) each (about $16). She didn't tell us this when she recommended the drink or served our drink, only after the bill arrived. Never saw this before in my life.

And I heard the same confession made by her to another couple seated nearby! Definitely a classless way to treat guests and make the ending of the night unnecessarily awkward. Either disclose the additional charge for the drink you recommend and let me decide OR just make the drink price 12 shekels more and I wouldn't have even known.

It felt like a cash grab at a place where the drinks are about $17 each already. It left a bitter taste in my mouth... and no, it wasn't the Campari.

BellBoy and Butler bars, the second substantially hidden inside the first one: way the best cocktails in the city...the atmosphere, the bar tenders (especially the one of the Butler), the presentation and the quality of the cocktails are really outstanding...great job guys!

This small bar, hidden in a boutique hotel on a side street, is a real gem. They managed to create an authentic 1920s classy speakeasy atmosphere, the staff is super-professional and the cocktails are crazy... They serve very fine small bar food dishes, and you can easily spend a whole evening totaly cut off from the reality outside. A must try spot in Tel Aviv's Bar scene !!

Were there in autumn 2018 with friends and liked it a lot. A booking in advance is a must, 1st time we failed to come in from the street. We didn't eat there but our aim was to taste cocktails and we fulfilled it for 100%. The selection is superb as well as presentation. Staff is quick and fun and like to make jokes. The place was really packed and somewhat loud, so cosy romantic evening is not about that place.

We booked a romantic night at Bellboy, after having been there a few years back. Horrible experience, cramped, and nothing special. Felt like we were in a loud pub, nothing romantic about it and they have since added more tables that there is no room whatsoever! Not worth booking and pricing of their cocktails! Much better off going to a regular bar!

It’s a very unique bar. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends to try it once. It is on the pricey side just giving a heads up. The atmosphere is great and the waiter we had was awesome. The drinks are well made. They are not watered down. Each drink is presented to you with its own twist. To sum it up, definitely go there for the experience and the drinks!!!
