Aria

City Center
Classic Cocktail Bar

Aria’s got it going on in the looks department—the light-soaked venue boasts rich wood floors, crisp white furnishings and views of Tel Aviv nightlife (downstairs) and a bustling open kitchen (upstairs). Its upper level is an eclectic bistro featuring innovative fare from Chef Guy Gamzo, but real insiders know that Aria’s best offerings are in the lounge on the ground floor, where Middle East cocktail guru Custer Thompson whips up concoctions like the Sumac Gimlet—spiked with fresh citrus and homemade sumac syrup—while a DJ spins music and patrons compete with the décor for the title of Most Beautiful.
