A weekend in Tel Aviv is a festival of life, culture and relaxation. On Saturdays, the city comes alive with a dizzying array of activities and attractions, catering to all tastes and interests. And there is no better place to start your Saturday adventure than The Savoy Hotel. Our hotel is located in the center of Tel Aviv just a stone’s throw from the beach, in close proximity with various areas filled with unique surroundings and lots of museums, galleries and cafes where you can enjoy eating at. Whereas in this guide, we have formulated some of the recommendations with essential tips on what to do in Tel Aviv on Saturday.

The Peaceful Beach Morning

Start your Saturday morning off with a calm and rejuvenating experience at one of the most famous beaches in Tel Aviv. You can opt for the vibrant and popular Hilton Beach or secluded and peaceful Alma Beach—whatever vibe fits you best. But we would recommend one of the closest ones to The Savoy Hotel – Jerusalem Beach, or ten minutes walking distance from this establishment. It’s a beautiful beach, less crowded with amazing views of Jaffa and the Mediterranean Sea. You can participate in beach yoga, lounge on the deck chair or jump into the cool water.

Art and Museums

Tel Aviv boasts of vibrant art scenes that have captured international recognition making it a home for creativity and innovation. The map shows that on Saturdays many of these cultural centers are still open so visitors get the chance to see other aspects associated with the town’s culture. One of the places we recommend visiting is the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, which is one of the most visited sites located in the very heart of this city. The museum has a diverse collection of Israeli and international art which includes works by world-famous artists such as Renoir, Monet, and Van Gogh. Some of these include smaller galleries like the Chelouche Gallery for Contemporary Art which are located within the trendy Neve Tzedek neighborhood.

Brunch and Cafe Culture

The brunch and cafe culture of Tel Aviv is legendary as there are literally trendy spots, classic cafes, and local gems in every corner of the city. A few blocks away from the Savoy Hotel, is Benedict; this restaurant serves a shepherd’s breakfast which is quite fulfilling and luxurious. Their menu consists of traditional American breakfast items, Israeli-based delights for breakfast as well—and some indulgent twists like Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. For a less formal, authentic experience, one of the many local cafes in the Nachalat Binyamin area. Order a typical Israeli breakfast- shakshuka or sabich(a pita filled with fried eggplants, boiled eggs and hummus) along with a strong cup of coffee.

Nightlife and Bars

Tel Aviv’s Saturday nights are all about sensory overload, with bars pouring out into the streets and DJ performances on dance floors throughout the city. If you are looking for some night time fun, we recommend Kuli Alma. It’s a vibrant dance floor and popular for attracting an assorted clientele. If you are looking for something more intimate and refined, go to the Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar which can be found in Shuk HaCarmel market. They provide traditional and creative recipes of cocktails which are ideal for a date night or after-party drinks.
