“I'm so lucky I live right next door!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Big wonderful square with pool and flowers and a few restaurants and plenty of places to sit down and have a city picnic. Full of life and noise and happenings! Didn't bring a picnic basket? Right across the way on Rothschild Blvd you can buy a pizza, and on Marmorek Street, opposite the Square there is a supermarket, an icecream place and a couple of restaurants you can take away from! Enjoy, any time of the day. The neighborhood is safe 24/7, I have been living there since 1983!

“Rest for tired eyes”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Take a break in the recently created Habimah Square which spreads it's white beauty between the recently renovated National Theatre and the Israel Philharmonic Hall currently undergoing restoration...the white expanse is highlighted by a famous sculpture and a crowned by a great shade tree surrounded by benches and seats. There's a reflecting pool (careful, it's not a mirage and it looks as if anyone could mistakenly fall in) but the best part is a sunken garden of benches surrounding a variety of flora...and when you are done there you can wander into either a cafe restaurant on the grounds or further on to the Helena Rubinstein wing of the Tel Aviv Museum and its adjoining garden also recently updated--all in the same complex. Another of Tel Aviv's delights.

“A beautiful white square to match the white city Tel Aviv.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

A great white square where you can sit and read a book or gave a coffee. It is Israel'a version of Lincoln Center with Habima Theater and concert hall one next to the other. A perfect little stop on your walking tour of Tel Aviv.

“see my rating: Mann Auditorium (Habimah Square)”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

to save you the search I copied my rating:
renewed latly and visited few times while at work
this place is a chapter in Tel Aviv's history. also for me as my late parents used to be subscribers of the philharmonic orcestra which is just oppositely both he Habima theater and the philharmonic (F.Mann) houses were renoveted and worth a visit (not to say a ticket for a concert with maestro Zubin Mahetta)

“Great place to enjoy a sunny day!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

The renovated Habimah Square is well located in the very center of Tel Aviv. On a sunny day, sit out there to soak some sun, see the Tel-Avivians enjoy their days and sip some espresso in one of the coffee places surrounding the square.
