The heat. As much as I love the summer, a cold breeze during these hot days will be more then welcome.

Traveling. Seeing new cultures and meeting new people from across the globe always fascinated me, and having the chance to do it always makes me happy.

Tupac – All Eyez on Me.

Online mostly, brands such as Ministry of Supply for more suit up events or from local designer studio’s such as ARAMA shoes and Fiocco Nero.
What’s your go-to café in Tel Aviv?
Segafredo Espresso on Dizengoff 106. Usually I have my Friday morning breakfast there before heading to the beach, or for a coffee at 4 AM before heading to the airport. I’ts open 24/7 and serves great sandwiches and superb quality coffee.
What’s your favorite street or neighborhood to wander through in Tel Aviv?
My first apartment in Tel Aviv was on Eilat St. where I lived for 2 years in a huge Bauhaus style apartment. Ever since I have strong feelings for this part of the city – in between Neve Tzedek and Florentin and close to the German Colony and Noga area, means you will have plenty of stuff to see and explore.
What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Tel Aviv but never actually do?
To have a picnic out in the Yarkon Park. For a while now I’ve been saying to myself that I should find the time and the right atmosphere to take a bottle of cold white wine and some delicacies from the Delicatessen and do it. Hopefully it will happen soon.
Who’s your hero (dead or alive) and where would you take them to show them a good time?
Im not sure if he is one of my heroes, but I would definitely love it if I could have a drink with Charles Bukowski. To hear some of his crazy stories and life experience and getting to know more about one of the most creative poet, novelist, and short story writers. I will take him to the Minzar bar late at night since I have a hunch that he would appreciate this place.
If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying in – where would you go?
Tel Aviv Museum of Art – to wander inside for a few hours.
What’s that place in Tel Aviv that you feel like only you know about? Where’s your secret spot and what make it special for you?
My secret spot in the city is on top of an old parking lot building in Nahalat Binyamin St. Taking the elevator to the 8th floor with a beer or two and enjoy the view of the city is priceless.
If tomorrow was your last day in Tel Aviv before you left for good, how and where would you spend it?
I would start my day at the beach with a cold beer and continue to eat at one of the best burger joints the city has to offer – Shu Sha chef burger. In the evening I will go bar hopping starting at the Port Said and continue to the Kuli Alma for some additional drinks. If its the weekend I will end my night at The Block Club to enjoy what is considered the best sound system in the Middle East.
You’ve just got the best news ever. Where would you go to celebrate and who would you go with
I would definitely go to the Suramare bar to celebrate the awesome news with my best friends over a few of there great homemade Chaplin cocktails and happy food.
What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?
I love putting my headphones on and riding my bike across the city.
When you feel like a night out, what’s your go-to place and why?
On a typical night out I will hop between 2-3 places, but my favorite spot is the Kuli Alma. Relaxed atmosphere that quickly turns into a vibrant party as the evening progress. Reasonably priced drinks, great music and temporary art exhibitions makes it a place I love to hang out in and bring my guests to.
