Metzudat Ze'ev (Hebrew: מצודת זאב‎, lit. "Ze'ev's fortress / stronghold") is an office building located on 38 King George Street in Tel-Aviv, Israel. It is also known as Beit Jabotinsky (Hebrew: בית ז'בוטינסקי‎, lit. "Jabotinsky's House") or sometimes simply as HaMetzuda (Hebrew: המצודה‎, lit. "the fortress / stronghold").

Built in a Brutalist style, the building was planned in 1936 and its construction lasted until 1963. Upon completion, at 60 metres (200 ft), it was one of the tallest buildings in Tel Aviv. The building is named after the founder of the Revisionist Zionism movement, Ze'ev Jabotinsky and serves as the headquarters of the Israeli right-wing Likud party.
