Located at the picturesque, beautifully renewed Tel Aviv Port, the bar is tastefully decorated with exposed brick walls and black and white prints on the walls depicting famous jazz singers and musicians.
Shablul Jazz Club is unrivalled as the home of contemporary Israeli jazz. There are live shows each night, featuring local jazz bands, as well as international acts.
Seating is limited, so it is recommended to come early for a performance in order to get the best view. The limited size of the venue makes for an intimate atmosphere, so you can look the performers right in the eye as they play from the stage.
The lighting is soft and romantic with individual candles at each table.
Recently, Israel's finest jazz singer, Mazi Cohen took to the stage with her band, to deliver a superlative concert of jazz hits. Her strong, resonant voice worked in harmony with the acoustics and outstanding sound of Shablul Jazz Club.

The audience participated in one of her songs, and the sound of a room of people engaged in song really reflected the intimacy of the venue. Shablul is truly the perfect bar for an evening of relaxed, soulful jazz.
During the performance, food and drinks, including an extensive wine collection are served at the table.
