Fabulous Ferndale has been host to a number of new bars and restaurants popping up in the last year. The new kid on the block, Imperial, has been serving up tequila and some seriously delicious California-style street fare. They are open seven days a week from 11 a.m. – 2 a.m., with food service ending at midnight.
Imperial is the brainchild of owners Perry and Sharon LaVoisne, and old friends and music industry aficionados Jeff and Susanne King and Amir Daiza.

Parking is metered on the street and in parking lots behind the business.Read More
