Our Friday/Saturday shows run at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm, while our Sunday shows and games from 6pm. These show sets run for 10 – 15 minutes each- they’re all different and designed for you to see them all!

We run our shows across the whole ground floor- with two new stages plus the bartop in action, every table is the best in the house! We’ll do our best to take your seating preferences into account, but table location is allocated predominately based on group size. 

We do have both low backed seats and high top bar stool seating- if you require specific seating as an accessibility requirement, please let us know so we can accommodate this. 

As much as we’d love to invite everyone up on stage, we’d run out of time for our queens if we pulled up everyone here celebrating something! But hey, our performers are good-time girls and are always happy for a chat and a pic as long as you say hello and please. In saying that, we’ve got some Sunday secrets up our rhinestoned sleeves, so if you’re really keen on getting some of that special attention, Sunday drag ‘n’ dine is the place to be!

If you’re looking for a more one on one experience, we’re pleased to offer our private drag function packages and can customize an event just for you. Reach out to imperial.reservations@universalhotels.com.au and let’s talk!

The Imperial Erskineville is pleased to offer a variety of gluten free options on our menu. Our menu contains allergens and is prepared in a kitchen that handles nuts and gluten. Whilst our chefs make all reasonable efforts to accommodate our guests’ dietary needs we only have one kitchen for preparation so there is always a small chance of cross contamination and it may not be suitable for coeliac guests.
