Israel is home to hundreds of wineries that have captured the attention of the International market in much the same way as the Israeli food scene has, with pleasant surprise.
The stunning variety of wines available from the boutique wineries that have attracted critical acclaim has allowed a local interest for quality wines develop into something of a passion.
The bar scene in Tel Aviv has also made a name for itself appearing on award winning lists and featuring in global lifestyle publications such as Conde Nast Traveler and The Culture Trip.
One of the prominent Tel Aviv bars on the bustling scene is The Library Bar, situated in The Norman Hotel and headed up by leading mixologist Karin Tayer. Established with the goal of serving up classic and signature cocktails of its own from morning until night, the design of the bar seamlessly slips from a busy business meeting vibe in the morning to sultry hang out at night, replete with playlist perfection and humidor.
The Library Bar boasts a wine cellar steered by award winning sommeliere Shira Tsiddon who just added the Forbes 30 Under 30 list to her already hefty list of accolades.
The Champagne list is the most extensive list of Champagnes you will find anywhere in Israel, and the ever-changing wine list represents the very best of white, red and rose. This year, a third edition of ALENA wine will be added to the menu, alongside The Norman’s own blend gin.
The bar and wine market in Tel Aviv may be stunning, but nowhere can quite boast having it all – as The Library Bar can.
