Since 1983 The Imperial has become an icon and an institution. After a much needed nip and tuck, it’s finally time to welcome a new era of for the Imperial Erskineville!

Unique in style, diverse in culture – we invite you to drink, dance, drag & dine in style at our new Restaurant Priscillas.: to celebrate self-expression, to share our passion for creative individualism, performance, dance and music, and to weave these quirks with seriously good food and killer cocktails.

In the Basement, dance the night away at one our promoter events. 2 nights a week this space will be a haven for live performance, DJs and parties hosted by your favourite promoter groups, such as (but not limited to) Heaps Gay, Girl Thing, Honcho Disko – as well as our own Big Kids Pure Disco on Friday nights.

There is plenty of love in our house, we hope to see you soon.
