COVID-19 Update – December 21st 2021

In light of the worsening COVID situation and to ensure the safety of our staff and guests, we have made the difficult decision to close until Wednesday, December 29th. We want our Impy family to be able to have a safe break with their loved ones over this time. If you’ve made a reservation with us during this period, we’ll be in touch shortly. We’ll be back open next week to proceed with our New Year’s plans, we hope to see you there. 

We’d like to send you a big (COVID-safe) virtual kiss in thanks for supporting us over this very challenging time. Providing a space for our local and wider LGBTQI+ community to thrive and connect is our purpose, and despite the changing landscape we now operate our business under, it is with the great privilege we are able to continue doing what we love.

In the current climate, we ask patrons and staff alike to respect the current restrictions outlined by the NSW Government.

  • When entering the venue, all patrons will need to sign in.
  • If you have been in close contact with a recent known case, or have cold/flu like symptoms – we request you skip this disco, get tested and join us another time. We love you, but also we need to put the health and safety of our community first. There will always be another party!
  • Wherever possible and whatever the occasion, reservations are preferred – this helps the team prepare for your visit and ensure that sufficient space for your group is reserved. We require all patrons who enter our venue to register upon arrival. Hand sanitiser stations are positioned around every level for regular use throughout your visit.
  • Imperial UP also has specific sitting times to ensure we can safely accommodate as many of you as possible. If you would like to stay on after your allocated time, we will do our very best to be flexible, so please have a chat with the host on arrival.

From the whole team, from the kitchen, to the bar, to our performers and artists – we thank you for your cooperation and adding some much-needed sparkle to our lives!
