Since 1983, The Imperial Erskineville has been an icon and an institution. After a much-needed nip and tuck and a deluge of love, the curtain’s up on the next act for this national treasure in the heart of the LGBTQIA+ community!
Unique in style, diverse in culture, we invite you to drink, dance, drag & dine at our ground floor restaurant Priscillas! Here we celebrate self-expression, creative individualism, performance, dance and music. We match all these passions with a deep devotion to seriously good food and killer cocktails.
In the Basement, The Imperial’s party-loving soul shines brighter than ever. Two nights a week, this space will be a haven for live performance, DJs and parties hosted by your favourite promoter groups, including Heaps Gay, Girl Thing, Honcho Disko – as well as our own fabulous Drag Xtravaganza on Friday nights with Farren Heit.
Now open is Imperial UP! Atop yours truly resides a contemporary rooftop bohemia born from iconic Italian food and convivial cocktail culture… The newest space in our fabulous venue is open 7 nights a week, and all weekend. The perfect place to go UP to no good – featuring a gallery space for artist Frida Las Vegas!
Explore Yourself Sundays is a venue wide event that promotes self-expression, inviting the diverse and dynamic LGBTQIA+ and local community to journey through our fabulous queer subcultures.
There is plenty of love in our house. We hope to see you soon.
