Had never thought that I am a cocktail person before, but this is something else!! No pina coladas here and if you are conservative I wouldn't even recommend... but in case you are not, they will open a brand new world to you. Every cocktail is a special, the menu changes every season which makes you come back as you... More

After reserving 10 days in advance and confirming twice the day before and day of, upon arrival we were told we would have to share a table of 8 and we were a party of 4. This is unacceptable, reservations should not be taken if they cannot be kept. After a short change of words we were seated at an... More

Came on the recommendation of our hotel hostess and did not disappoint. Cocktails crafted to perfection, they will do off the menu drinks based on what flavours you enjoy, which is a treat. Really really good food as well, Asian tapas style! Excellent service and a cool vibe.

Very small, crowded and dark place created very unique atmosphere. The bartenders are super professional and very friendly. The cocktails were great and the food was good, but only 2 dishes for vegetarians. Highly recommended.

They have n amzing unique cocktail list. As a bonus, they have one of the best happy hours in city – 50% off cocktails from 6-8 PM. The cocktails are creatively and carefully crafted. Was voted the Best Bar in Africa and the Middle East.I t's a must visit in my opinion.

They know of all of the classic cocktails and have every ingredient you would expect a great cocktail bar to have. More than that they make great cocktails- never too sweet or too strong. The service was amazing. Water was refilled very quickly all the time, we never waited for an order to be taken- staff was great. One bar... More

I visited the Imperial Bar on New Year's Eve with my wife and two friends. This bar is riding on a huge reputation and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the drinks are outstanding - this place really deserves the title of one of the top 50 bars in the world. The decor, ambience, music and setting... More

There is a growing bar scene in Tel Aviv. Imperial is at the top of the heap. The signature cocktails are excellent with high quality ingredients. The bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. They make excellent suggestions. The bar is well-stocked with top-shelf ingredients. Imperial is small, but the companion bar--La Otra--has more room

Thank utpsy

Hidden within the Imperial Hotel, the Imperial Craft cocktail Bar is a creation of veteran bartenders of the city, to create a temple to the lost craft of the cocktail.the kitchen is asian-colonial inspired, and the music varies from classic oldies at early hours to swing jazz and blues come latenight, when most of the city's bartenders come for an after work nightcap.
