Only in the last decade has Tel Aviv become known as the city that never stops. But according to city historians, Tel Aviv was a happening entertainment and party center - with pick-up bars and cafes frequented by youngsters - already in the 1920s. Discover Tel Aviv, a tourist center focusing on Tel Aviv, has organized special weekend tours to give the public the opportunity to discover the trends and hot spots in the early days of the first Hebrew City, tracing their evolution up until today. Partying in Little Tel Aviv This tour takes visitors through the early nightlife centers of Tel Aviv, from Ahad Ha'am to Sderot Rothschild. Find out where the hot hang-outs, movie theaters, and cafes were even before the State of Israel was founded. Fri, Oct. 20, 10 a.m. (meet at Ahad Ha'am, corner of Herzl St.) Shaul Hamelech Street Once surrounded by egg farms, fields and eucalyptus trees, Shaul HaMelech Street is now the cultural center of Tel Aviv, with the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Opera House and other cultural centers dominating its lanes. Fri, Oct. 27, 10 a.m. (meet at Shaul Hamelech corner of Ibn Gbirol St.) To Dizengoff "To Dizengoff" was once used as a verb coined to describe walking around this historic street. The verb is hardly used these days, since Dizengoff is no longer the tourist/party center it once was, although signs of renewal are evident. This tour will hearken visitors back to the day when Dizengoff was the most happening street in Israel. Sat, Oct. 28, 10 am (meet at Dizengoff Square, corner of Zaminhoff) All tours are NIS 30.
