Until recently, most Tel Aviv bars did not have a happy hour special. Unlike American business culture, where after work you grab some drinks and food, in Tel Aviv, people head home and then have drinks after dinner. However, recently, the happy hour scene has erupted in Tel Aviv. One of my favorite happy hours bars is Mila Bar.
Mila Bar is located in the heart of Dizengoff street, next to the corner of Ben Gurion and Dizengoff. In Tel Aviv, where there are so many options where to start your night of drinking, if you don’t have Mila Bar as your destination, chances are that you probably won’t end up there. Over a year ago, my friends and I were looking for an early happy hour and randomly found Mila Bar. We have been spreading the word about their happy hour specials ever since.
In the past year, Mila Bar has a made a name for themselves, becoming one the trendier bars on the Dizengoff bar scene. The crowd varies per night, but usually it is a mix of locals after work, tourists and lots of first dates (I personally took my girlfriend here once for a date). The staff is very friendly and works quickly when the bar is full with customers. They are packed every night and it is tough to find a spot if you get to the bar after 9 pm.
Their 1+1 happy hour specials are well advertised throughout the bar. Opening in the early evening and going til 9:30 pm, their drinks are “buy one get the next one free”. They also offer happy hour food specials that are very tasty and compliment the drinks.
Their happy hour drinks special menu includes varies of draft beer, bottled beer, cocktails and seasonal cocktails.
