5 music venues in Tel-Aviv

There are plenty of places where you can attend live music in Tel Aviv. Indie-rock, classical, funk, middle-eastern music: the cultural and intergenerational diversity of the city reflects as well in its musical scene.

Rothschild 12

This coffee place/concerts bar is probably the most known among tourists and local people. They come there in the morning to sip a cappuccino and taste a croissant, on early evening to have a few delicious tapas, or a little bit later to attend a concert. The musical program is eclectic but indie-pop and alternative-rock lovers will be the happiest people there.

Free entrance. Concerts start around 10 pm.

Address: Rothschild 12

Beit Haamudim

Jazz enthusiasts, let’s meet at Beit Haamudim! It’s in this house, just a few steps away from Nachalat Benyamin, that a jazz live happens every night (except on Friday), in a very cozy atmosphere. Beit Haamudim generally welcomes, in its small living room, music trios that only a handful of people have the pleasure to listen to.

Entrance almost free: the bar asks for some participation that is around 10 shekels for the concert.

Lives start at 9:30 pm but if you want a seat inside, come around 9 pm at the latest.

Address: Rambam 4

Levontin 7

At the heart of Tel Aviv’s musical scene, Levontin 7 hosts, every night in its basement, artists whose musical genres go from alternative rock to afro-funk going through new age or classic jazz.

If the entry is not free, it is generally between 20 and 50 shekels.

Address: Levontin 7

Bialik Café

We don’t introduce the Bialik Café anymore that is one of the oldest coffee places in Tel Aviv. But did you know that from 8 pm, the café transforms itself into a tiny shows place, setting up a small stage and a red curtain inside? The Bialik café sells out every evening, offering a diversified musical program, as favoring pop-rock-folk music.

Entry is free and varies from 30 to 100 shekels, but buy in advance your tickets. Concerts start between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Address: Bialik 2


Barby is THE true institution in terms of live music in Tel Aviv. This concerts place welcomes artists of international renown (Sugar Hill Gang was there lately), popular Israeli singers (Evyatar Banai for example), young foreign artists (Beardy Man) or local talents starting to make a name for themselves on the local musical scene (A-WA or Quarter to Africa for example).

For a music venue, the price of the tickets is affordable. We recommend to buy tickets in advance, through their website. Concerts generally start around 10 pm.

Address: Derech Kibbutz Galuyot 22
