Imperial Basement


Every Friday & Saturday


The Basement is a late-night sanctuary for all; a safe home for personal and creative expression, exuberance and inclusivity, and welcomes all members of the LGBTQIA+ community. The Imperial Erskineville has always been a beloved late-night dance venue outside the lockout zones, and continues on as a proud standard-bearer for joyous after-dark culture.

The Basement comes alive with self-expression, creative energy and flamboyant performance. Hosting a line-up of drag and performance art, live music, DJs, partnered and special events, the space will be shared with some of the world’s best party partners to offer Sydney’s most captivating nights.
