30 May Tel Aviv Port 6 Things to Do At The port
The New Namal
The Tel Aviv Port, locally-known as Namal Tel Aviv, was restored to breathe a new lease of life to the port.
It was in 1936, when the Great Arab Riot in Jaffa closed the port as a show of resistance to the British, that a new port was quickly sought — giving birth to the Tel Aviv Port. Although port operations have ceased, the Tel Aviv Port is deemed to be one of the hotspots in town.
Tel Aviv Port is constantly bustling with activities for her visitors all through the day and here are some of our favourite things to do at the Tel Aviv Port.
The Tel Aviv Port Indoor Market is a fresh addition to the port. It is located at Hangar 12 and is a great place to savour some of Israel’s finest cheeses, wines and meats. Be warned that prices aren’t exactly the cheapest but you’re definitely guaranteed the highest of quality that would satiate any gourmand. And if you’re not in the mood to spend, you can simply enjoy the lively atmosphere at the Tel Aviv Port Indoor Market — a priceless experience worth more than any dime.
Friday is known to be packed with things to do all over Tel Aviv and the Tel Aviv Port holds no exception. The Farmers Market (every Friday, until 3pm) is located right at the entrance of the Tel Aviv Port Indoor Market.
The Tel Aviv Port Farmers Market brings you some of the freshest (and proudest!) local farm produce including fruits and vegetables, herbs, cheeses, breads, cakes, honey and of course, olive oil. In fact, some of the products are so premium that they can’t be found in local supermarkets since they’re being exported straight to top restaurants in Tel Aviv.
What’s more, the Tel Aviv Port Farmers Market supports the local movement of being environmentally-friendly with no use of plastic bags. Join in the local’s eco-friendly lifestyle and bring your own bag for the market gems you will find.
Surely There’s Shopping
The Tel Aviv Port is lined with a variety of shops. Shoppers, brace yourself for popular Israeli fashion brands such as Castro, Renuar and Replay, as well as international brands such as Steve Madden, Adidas, Levi’s and more. Sun, Sea and Shopping — what more could you ask for?
Visitors are spoilt for choice with the wide variety of restaurants, cafes and bars. Whether you’re splurging at a top chef restaurant or craving for an authentic Israeli cuisine, the Tel Aviv Port is a great choice for dining out.
Check Out: The Kitchen Market boasts a great view and even better food. Overlooking the Tel Aviv Port Market, this restaurant is helmed by Chef Rossi Shirit with a menu emphasising on light, delicate dishes.
Parties and nightlife by The Port
After its recent restoration, the Tel Aviv Port has become one of the hottest party spots in Tel Aviv. The day gives way to a large crowd of young locals and tourists looking for the next best party.
Check Out: Shalvata Club is a laid-back restaurant by day and party haven by night. It offers party goers the three key factors of a perfect party – great atmosphere, huge dance floor and killer tunes. White couches with comfortable lounge chairs dress the restaurant-bar to offer its visitors an ideal break from the city bustle.
