Dizengoff Center was Israel's first mall, built over a period of five years between 1972 and 1977. The Center is located at the intersection of Dizengoff Street and King George Street in central Tel aviv and was named after Meir Dizengoff, the first mayor of Tel Aviv. The mall has an astonishing 420 stores, as well as two cinemas and restaurants, and even hosts art exhibitions and other events.
• The Lev Cinema that offers top-quality films from all over the world
• Soho- located on the top floor. A design center that displays exhibits from around the world and contains the largest shop in Israel for designed products.
• The roof-top swimming pool and gym that is open twenty-four hours a day- when the relentless humidity of Tel Aviv starts to get to you, pop in to the pool for a refreshing dip on the roof of the mall.
• The food market that is set up on Thursdays and Fridays and offers delicious, homemade cooking that is perfect for taking home for Shabbat. On Thursdays it's open between 16:00 and 22:00 and on Fridays between 10:30 and 16:00.
• The fashion designers bazaar is present on Fridays between the hours of 10:30 and 16:00 and displays the latest offerings from Israel's top fashion designers. Prices are slightly reduced and it provides a great opportunity to see what's hot in the local styles.
Adjacent to Rabin Square and just off Ibn Gvirol Street, is a lovely half-open shopping centre that goes by the name of Gan Ha'ir (The City Garden in English). The shopping centre is known for having shops and restaurants that are on international standards, with chain stores sharing the space with exclusive brand stores.
Gan Ha'ir opened in the late eighties and was considered the most elite shopping centre in Tel aviv. Today, the compact, well-kept shopping centre still has some very elegant and expensive shops, and one can find almost everything here, ranging from clothing to carpets, jewelry to house-ware, from restaurants to night-clubs. The greenery is lush, the fountains sparkling and the City Garden Shopping Centre is just waiting to be explored…
The Azrieli Center is a skyscraper complex in Tel aviv with the largest shopping mall in Tel Aviv in the center. The three skyscrapers that make up the Azrieli Center are all shaped differently, one circular-shaped, one square-shaped and one triangular-shaped. The Azrieli Center has become a symbol of the renewal of Tel Aviv and Israel.
The Azrieli Center Mall is one of the largest malls in Israel. In addition to a dizzying number of clothes stores, there are about thirty eateries in the mall- ranging from restaurants and cafés to fast-food joints. Although the Azrieli Center serves primarily as a business centre; in fact, the largest one in the Middle East, the shopping mall and Observatory (located on the forty-ninth floor of the circular building) make a visit to the Azrieli well worth it!
The stores in the Azrieli Center Mall contain a fantastic selection of reasonably-priced clothes and is truly a one-stop kind of place- with the variety available, there's no need to stop in another mall on your visit! In addition, there is a play area for children so you can always leave your offspring with your partner to allow you to shop in peace.
