March 5

We’ve got Mardi Gras celebrations coming out of the wazoo on Saturday March 5th, paying homage to the pioneers and divas of our community and recognising 44 years of Sydney’s Mardi Gras.
We are very excited to offer a range of events; including viewing parties and a late-night party into the wee hours of Sunday. The Imperial is proud to serve the wider rainbow community and its allies, as a refuge of love and a sanctuary of self-expression.


5pm-10pm | $200pp

Don’t let the rain spoil the parade, join us for the ULTIMATE luxe VIP Mardi Gras experience! Enjoy a live stream of the 2022 Sydney Mardi Gras Parade with the best (and dry) seat in the house! A ticket to this event includes a drink on arrival, an Italian grazing feast of canapes and pizza, and a 5-hr bottomless beverage package! An intimate dining experience hosted by the fabulous ru-girl Etcetera Etcetera + special cameos from queens like Philmah Bocks, Jojo Zaho and more.

This ticket also includes entry to the Mardi Party in Main Bar and the Basement from 11pm.

Our Basement Parade Viewing Party in the Basement is a slightly more casual affair, get your glittter on and come celebrate with an old queen (or two!) and have a grand dame of a time in our club-come-cabaret space. Enjoy performances from Impy icons as they guide you through a night of camp conversation and the live stream of the parade on our giant LED TV screen! Please note this does not include a ticket to the late-night Mardi Party.

Get into the groove and let your pride shine at our late night Mardi Party. Across two levels: Main Bar and the Basement you can expect a night of celebrations in a refuge of love and a hub of cultural and queer diversity.
