Explore Yourself Sundays

 

Explore Yourself Sundays is a venue-wide, weekly event at The Imperial, opening arms and doors to the community and embracing the spectacular spectrum of queer culture. We’d like to think of it as a platform for self-expression, a place to unite our diverse and dynamic people, where you can celebrate, connect and EXPLORE the endless possibilities life holds.

Launching on 15th July, we invite the LGBTQIA+ and local community to the heart of the Inner West. Featuring an incredible line up with DJ Dan Murphy, Marlena Dali, Farren Heit, Ruby Slippers and DJ James Daley. This old gal will find any excuse to party, holding you close to her bosom, breaking the rules and welcoming lovers and friends to her chosen family… Just bend the knees and slide in.

 

Explore Yourself Sundays Trading Hours: Noon – 12am
Happy Hour: 5-7pm
Entry FREE
Location: Imperial UP, Front Bar & Priscillas

Journey With Us

ACT ONE: GET UP TO NO GOOD

 

Start your Sunday in the sun at Imperial UP’s rooftop, over jugs of cocktails  with pulsating beats reminiscent of epic classic 80s remixes winding provocatively through the collection of Sunday thrill seekers.

 

We’re talking the three P’s: Prosecco, Pizza & Party! It’s la dolce vita darling, simply assemble the gaggle and we’ll do the rest…

With pop-up queer performance at 5PM to supplement the experience and tickle the senses! A rotating of Sydney’s most dynamic performance artists, such as Marlena Dali, Andy Dexterity, Betty Grumble + more…
