Imperial Cabinet Saloon

Cocktails created at Imperial Cabinet Saloon

The Ramos Gin Fizz has been a favorite of the Crescent City since the late 1880s. Created by Henry C. Ramos, it gets its unique flavoring from orange flower water and its froth from beaten egg whites.

Ramos bought the Imperial Cabinet Saloon (at the corner of Carondelet and Gravier streets) in 1888, and it was there that his Gin Fizz earned its reputation.

The Imperial Cabinet Saloon is 3,500 square feet of classic New Orleans charm, with views of Canal and Magazine Streets, an authentic antique bar and plenty of room for entertaining.

Today, you can book and host an event at the Saloon and experience it yourself.
