When it comes to finding things to do in Haifa, there’re plenty of choices. From visiting the stunningly perfect landscaped gardens of the Baha'i Shrine to checking in on the animals at Haifa Educational Zoo, there’s no shortage of interesting attractions and picturesque sites. But what happens at nighttime? While Haifa’s attractions will easily fill up a daytime, when the sun goes down it’s time to hit town and enjoy the festivities. Here’s a look at some of the city’s nightlife hotspots.
The Beat Club
Located on Sderot NaHassi, the Beat Club is recognized as being the place to go for live music. With Israeli bands and international acts playing at the club most days of the week, you’re sure to find your new favorite band here.
Located on Moriya Boulevard, this pub is a favorite with sports fans. During big games, the place is bustling with drinkers, yet manages to maintain a friendly atmosphere.
Situated on Pika Street, this combination pub/restaurant is considered one of the trendiest nighttime destinations in Haifa. Good food and good drink comes as standard, although standing space is at a premium come the weekend.
Another establishment located on Moriya Boulevard, Brown – which is a part of the chain that operates Brown in Tel Aviv – has an English pub feel to its décor. Many make their way to this part of Haifa to enjoy the high quality food at the venue.
Located on Chayat Street near the Port of Haifa, Syncopa is known to be the place to go if you want to dance the night away. With live music, food, and DJs, there’s plenty to enjoy here.
If drinking and dancing the night away isn’t for you, there’s still a whole lot to do of do in Haifa. If you’re a sports fan, Kiryat Eliezer Stadium is home to Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Haifa football clubs. Both teams play in Israel’s top division. Alternatively, the Romema Arena is home to Maccabi Haifa’s basketball team.
If sports aren’t your thing, the city’s beaches make for a great evening. Haifa’s warm climate means evenings are rarely cool, particularly in tourist season, and even the sea is warm. Some of the more popular beaches features bars and cafés at which you can grab a drink or a light bite, before turning in for the night.
