The very first Scandinavian Cocktail Bar in Tel Aviv has opened!

As refined as modern art… As sexy as a night in a Scandinavian city… Don’t worry, we are not writing a description of KlötskÅ, the new Ikea sofa; we are actually unveiling Botanika, the first Scandinavian cocktail bar in Tel Aviv.

Here everything is made to meet Stockholm’s high standards: perfectly balanced cocktails with a pared down, modern design. We owe all of this Nordic chic to Botanika’s managers; they are more like super bar builders! They are also behind the opening of a few dozen Cocktail Bars around the world, and they always have 3 obsessions: taste, high quality ingredients, and minimalism.

How does this lovely story translate into drinks? Well it’s easy, we call it high precision and harmony: in each cocktail the main alcohol is always the star and the other ingredients are chosen to elevate it. Whether it’s Cognac chosen from a 200 year old brand, Rum infused with peach, or home made Akvavit, a flavored Scandinavian spirit, each of them is picked for its taste and finesse.

Botanika utilise des techniques uniques en Israël comme le fumage sous cloche.

Botanika uses unique techniques to create high end cocktails like no one else in Israel.

The highlight of the night comes from a huge ice cube made of special filtered water and cut into perfect cubes by the bartender: the ultimate Nordic touch to make sure the cocktail won’t water down and preserve its savor.


Botanika is the only bar in the Middle-East to use this process to manufacture ice cubes.

Enough talking, more drinking! Pick a cocktail (or two) from the menu and when you order, don’t forget to have a look at the chef’s foodie offer: fresh fish tartare, crunchy veggies, or even vanilla and lavender cream if you’re a dessert lover.


Since it’s not every day that a new Scandinavian Bar opens to warm up our Tel Avivian nights, we decided to make this right: win an evening at Botanika with 3 of your friends (2 cocktails each and Tapas to share).

Botanika, located on Hayarkon St 78 (on the ground floor of the Ultra Hotel), is open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 6M to 12PM and from Wednesday to Saturday from 6PM to 2AM. Call 03-933-0339 to book a table or click here. Visit their website

Congrats to Yael Mamou, who won a night out for cocktails with 3 of her friends at Botanika, the new Scandinavian Bar of Tel Aviv.

For everyone else, yes all the readers of Happy in Tel Aviv, we have a surprise: On December 22nd, starting at 6PM, you’re invited to Botanika. There you’ll be able to discover and exclusively taste the first cocktails inspired by the most famous spots of Tel Aviv (we helped the Barman choose). Florentin, Gordon, or even Habima and Rothschild – every spot and its atmosphere will be translated into a cocktail created especially for the evening.
