The yard, the myth, the legend! Backyard bars have a unique essence of freshness and freedom, so it’s no surprise that Tel Aviv is filled with them.

Central Tel Aviv | Yehuda ha-Levi 33 | Hipster Yard
*Review by Alicia Gansz*
In the heart of Allenby’s busy shopping district, a strikingly designed bright-blue arch framing an open doorway. What lies beyond the painted arch with strange writing? An intriguing hidden world opens before you: an open courtyard with sunlight that tries, with little success, to penetrate the canopy of mature trees shading a casual splay of cafe tables and benches. It’s a secret cafe… on Allenby, and the coolest “secret garden” of Tel Aviv. Read More.
