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 art of the cocktail. The kitchen is Asian-colonial inspired, and the music varies from swing jazz at happy hour to surf and rock n' roll come latenight (when most of the city's bartenders come cruising around).
Born to the hotel and restaurant life style, Gilad, youngest of the founding partners, likes living on the edge, Making every minute count and living life to the max. Gilad will make sure the place is buzzing, you always have a drink in hand, and a smile on your face.
Having been educated in the finest chef restaurants tel aviv has to offer, Dror brings finesse and fine dining standards to the founders trio, and is undoubtedly the machine that works behind the scenes to keep everything under high quality control.
Eldest of the founding members, bar's vision sets the imperial mood, from music to design and PR it is bar's vision that makes sure you leave with more than you came with.
