Israel’s first, longest running and most awarded cocktail bar. 223 was opened in 2008, pioneering the field of cocktails in Israel and showcasing a new, never-seen-before, approach to hospitality.
223 is historically considered a hot bed for the field's top bartenders and a cradle of leadership for the Israeli hospitality industry.
A unique and surreal approach for hospitality and cocktails is what characterizes Bellboy the most. By using obscure and unusual ingredients combined with quirky and fun presentations, Bellboy is a game-changing, high-end, unforgettable experience.
Butler is a non-identical twin to ‘Bellboy’. Situated inside a secret room within the ‘Bellboy’ perimeter, Butler features a quaint, classic, one-on-one bartending experience. Showcasing the smallest bar room in Israel with only 12 seats, Butler is available for date-night, solitude drinking or small private functions with your own personal "Butler".
In the heart of Tel Aviv, we established Hôtel de Ville, our charming Gastro-Bar filled with magic inspired by the countless small neighborhood bistros which dot the various quarters of Paris.
