Tel Aviv Hot Spot: DJ Eliezer Rocks The Radio Bar

Went out last night to celebrate with friends at the relatively new bar, Radio E.P.G.B. Tel Aviv's equivalent to Time Out or the Village Voice, Achbar HaIr, has highlighted it as being one of the best bars in Tel Aviv. It's definitely got that Tel Aviv feel - the decor isn't exactly right, but its trying, and there is that residue of "pick-up-bar" in the layout.  It's one of those bars with two older Russian bouncers at the discreet entrance which isn't much more than the walkway to an apartment.

Radio is a basement bar with more space than you might expect when you first walk through the felt curtains into the dark, cellar-like room.  There's even a pool table in the back room. The walls are made-to-look-cruddy washed stone, which is meant to give it some sort of grungy New York feel, and the large bar sits low in the center with elevated platforms filled with couches, chairs and coffee tables lining the walls.  These are the corners you reserve for your party so you can have a corner all to yourself.  They are by far the best seats in the house.  You can easily see and be seen. But, if you're not on a platform, you're stuck swimming in the throngs of people below that crowd the bar and attempt at dancing despite the floor traffic.

Apparently their cocktails are also something special.  They have one called "Flaming Boey" which looks amazing -it comes in this sexy glass that looks like a large champagne coupe.  It's appropriately pink and the ladies love it.  I of course was just happy that they served half liters of beer.  Most new sexy bars in Tel Aviv only serve 1/3 liters.

What really makes the place special is the music.  Radio has live shows of all kinds each week that range from indie rock to punk to hip hop. Last night's DJ seriously rocked the turntables with some fantastic mixes - unique and classic, and some tunes of his own . I especially liked this original cover of Roxy Music's "Love is the Drug".

  4. And calcium intake is only part of the Paleo Diet. If afterwards you are invited by a friend to
    go consume in a very restaurant with absolutely nothing remotely paleo friendly on the
    menu, and typically it all goes to pieces. The foods that constitute the foundation of the paleo diet claim
    that it is a blueprint for global civilization.
