Shenkin Street is famed for being the street that epitomized the spirit of the Tel aviv streets in the eighties. Shenkin was the birthplace of some of the most exciting and original music, theater and dance groups that formed at that time. Despite the more conservative direction that the street has taken in recent years, it remains a hot attraction and offers some of the best stores and coffee shops.
For the shopaholics among us, welcome to the garden of Eden! Leading Israeli designers- Ronen Chen (49 Shenkin), Naama Bezalel and Banot-Lulu Liam (40 Shenkin), to name just a few chose to set up stores on the mythical street. Jewelry and accessory shops are also plentiful with world-famous Michal Negrin (37 Shenkin) setting up stall here, alongside Daniella Lehavi (35 Shenkin), famous for her bags and shoes. Speaking of shoes, for those looking for global brands, Aldo, Camper and Adidas can also be found on Shenkin. The Far East style is very popular in Israel and if that interests you, be sure to pay a visit to The Third Eye (7 Shenkin).
If you've worked up an appetite with all that retail therapy, there are plenty of eateries to choose from, including Café Tamar (57 Shenkin), famous for serving coffee to well-recognized Israeli figures, Orna and Ella, unarguably the best restaurant on the street and the well-loved Aroma coffee shop (30 Shenkin).
Visitors can easily spend an enjoyable day perusing Shenkin Street, shopping, eating and soaking up the unique atmosphere of one of the most popular streets in Tel Aviv.
