Imperial has changed drinking culture in Tel Aviv and Israel immeasurably in its eight years of operation. The bar has set new standards in the country for service, hospitality, ecological impact, emphasis on unique and local ingredients and bringing about the opening of some 30+ other cocktail bars in the city.
Rated in the past as high as number 17 by the World`s 50 Best Bars, repeatedly a top 10 in the Spirited Awards, and yet the Imperial remains a small and humble place focused on warm, modern hospitality and classic, elegant cocktails.
Imperial opened eight years ago, and is part of a group of bars and restaurants developed to compliment the Imperial concept. While Imperial is a colonial-era-design, elegant and exclusive cocktail bar, La Otra is a more approachable and fun Caribbean oriented bar, with a focus on Mexican food, Tequila, Mescal and Rum. And Bushwick is an all-day café & restaurant with live DJs in the evenings and hearty breakfasts in the morning.
Imperial is a 38 seats bar, sitting only, reservations highly recommended with a large list of classics served alongside a yearly modern cocktail menu that combines classic and modern techniques, often being the first to adapt global trends to local palates, and we boast our own unique approach to hospitality and leadership in the field.
We are proud to join BAROMETER 2021 this year and share our story.
