The American Sports Bar 🏈 – Mike’s Place

Herbert Samuel 90

Mike’s Place is the ultimate American sports bars with great food, great beer, and great entertainment. Mike’s Place serves up some of the best burgers and chicken wings in Tel Aviv, topped up with a large selection of draft beers and a sexy cocktail menu and a crazy happy hour from 17:00-19:00 Sunday to Friday (1+1 on all drinks).

Like the best American sports bars, Mike’s Place is also great at entertainment. All the bars regularly host live music and rocking themed parties. And all the bars have an awesome setup for watching sport on tv, often staying open late to show big US games. If you are looking to watch soccer, football, basketball, baseball, including college games, these guys are most likely to be showing it.

Mike’s Place is also a huge support for Olim Chadashim looking to settle in Israel – employing many Olim Chadashim and Internationals over the years, and providing a friendly bar where everyone knows your name. Read more

The Irish Pub 🍻 – Molly Blooms

There’s nothing quite like getting a pint in a pub, and Molly Blooms is the ultimate Irish pub in Tel Aviv! They serve refreshing beer and cider on top and really well rounded selection of food, ranging from tasty pub grub (burgers, schnitzel and all that jazz) to authentic Irish fare (homemade shepherd’s pie, Irish Beef Stew and Belfast potatoes). Molly Blooms is the perfect place to sit with friends for happy hour drinks or tasty pub grub. No matter which way you’ll have it (beer, whiskey or cider), Molly Blooms is the ultimate destination for Irish food and drink, and when there’s sports on it’s the best place in the city to catch the game… especially football and rugby!
