When it’s time for a new wardrobe, where do you go?

I get sick when walking into malls so I try to stick with small shops and local designs.

What’s your go-to café in Tel Aviv – to meet a friend or use as your base for all your meetings?

Shaffa café/Bar is a nice place for meetings. Easy going and good for different kinds of rendezvous. Good for coffee and for drinks.

Where’s your favorite street or neighborhood to wander in Tel Aviv, the street or neighborhood that you won’t mind taking a detour for, just to walk through it?

Ajami neighbourhood in Jaffa for the architecture, beach and vibe or the Levinski Market area for the delis and community.

I would take Jon Cassavetes and Martin Buber to a night at Anna Loulou.

What would make a perfect day in the sun for you?

Chill at Midron park in Jaffa with some picnic supplies and good friends.

If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying at home – where would you go?

Imperial bar – amazing cocktails on happy hour between 18.00-20.00. Cocktails are better with stormy weather.

If I write it here it won't be so secret any more.
