Ciao Amanti! (“Hello Lovers” in Italiano for those too lazy to Google Translate) welcome to Imperial UP! Atop yours truly resides a contemporary rooftop bohemia, a modern day eatery that celebrates convivial cocktail culture!
Inspired by the friendliness of Italian trattoria’s and the melting pot that is Newtown, tussled with that Impy fondness for disco and flair for style. We simply added echoes of Studio 54 with a generous pour of postmodern Queerdom, and mixed it all UP into a 200-person spacious courtyard that expands beyond pop art graphics, quasi-classical sculptures, stone mosaic bar tops and a gold clad pizza oven.
From the Alps to the Almafi, to the Inner West – Imperial UP’s soul is the comfort of lovingly prepared Italian food and Aussie pub classics, served with a side dish of fabulous. We’ve taken your traditional Nonna and titivated her into your queer Aunty serving up pasta, pizza, burgers and schnitties that all taste as delizioso (or bonza!) as they sound…
Imperial UP will trade 5 days a week: Wed-Fri 5pm to 12am, Sat-Sun 12pm to 12am
Our pizza kitchen and Italian menu is available weekends only Fri 5-10pm, Sat 12-10pm & Sun 12-5pm
