Rothschild Boulevard, the most famous street of Tel Aviv is also its beating heart. Many high tech company’s have their main office near this beautiful boulevard, which makes it the financial center of the country. But when the sun goes down, the area really comes to life.
Named after Baron Edmond James de Rothschild, the street has an European feel to it, with gorgeous buildings and lots of green. It’s also here where Israel’s Declaration of Independence was signed. A rich history, which is also expressed by the many Eclectic and Bauhaus buildings that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Besides that, modern high rise building are popping up on almost every street corner.
It’s also the place of the main theater in the city, Habima. And close to the Great Synagogue, which is surrounded by restaurants and bars. Amongst them the hipster place Port Said of famous chef Eyal Shani. A cool, relaxed vibe you’ll also find at Rothschild 12. Or hang out for drinks and bites at the newest hot place in town, Speak Easy, from where you have an amazing view on Rothschild. Still not enough? Go clubbing downstairs, at Jimmy Who?
The location of Rothschild is ideal, with famous streets like Balfour and Sheinkin (shops) around the corner. The highway is just a short ride away. The beach is within walking distance, just like Neve Tzedek and cool Florentin. The area suits both young couples and families.
