Cocktail Bars in Tel Aviv:

The Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar

Hayarkon 66 | 054-476-4464 | Facebook | Website

Imperial - best cocktail in Tel Aviv

Recently voted the best cocktail bar in the Middle East (and the 56th best in the World) – and I can vouch their cocktails are amazing. They also have a great half-price happy on cocktails between 6pm and 8pm, but make sure you reserve your place.

Until recently, these guys were synonymous with cocktails until Tel Aviv – that was until Imperial’s award. How are they going to respond?
