What’s On

The Imperial Erskineville is so much more than a local pub: flying a banner for the LGBTQI community and paying homage to our heritage and the incredible individuals who have made this iconic venue what it is… There’s never a dull moment in our slice of paradise!

Home to Priscillas restaurant with Drag N’ Dine being at the heart of our hearth, our weekly program is packed with daily performances, from drag queens to pole dancing and visual art – creating a unique dining experience like no other. Our Basement is open Friday (free entry) and Saturday nights (promoter events) to tickle the imagination.

Sundays have a new home and it all starts at Imperial UP! Say “Hiiiiiii Felicia” to Explore Yourself Sundays where everyone can express their inner rainbow while sipping down a summery spritz on our rooftop bohemia. A venue-wide event that unites the Inner West and wider LGBTIQA+ community, with Drink Specials from 5-7pm and where anyone can be a winner with our inclusive competition Lip Sync Heroes!
