Parties Belong at The Imperial

Special occasion? Step aside, everyone – this is a job for The Imperial Erskineville. Celebration is in the DNA of this iconic space, and we’re all about making those special dates sing, dance and dazzle. Whether you’re hosting a sit-down dinner or casual drinks in the front bar, marking a milestone with many, a few or just one or two, this grand old dame sure knows how to throw a party!

PRISCILLAS & FRONT BAR: Unique in style, diverse in culture – we invite you to drink, dance, drag & dine in style at Priscillas, gorgeous love child of the newly renovated Imperial, home of self-expression, creative individualism, performance, dance and music. Priscillas pairs these passions with seriously good food and killer drinks, making it the perfect place for special occasions of all varieties.

IMPERIAL UP: Imagine a friendly Italian trattoria with a fondness for disco and flair for style. Simply add echoes of Studio 54, a generous pour of postmodern Queerdom, and mix 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.

So whether you desire a dramatic stage, a soothing nook or a generous backdrop for the mother of all parties, we can offer a dynamic, atmospheric and all-inclusive space. Name the date, and The Imperial Erskineville will draw a big heart around it, take care of everything, and welcome you and yours with open arms.
