Since 1983 The Imperial has become an icon and an institution. After a much needed nip and tuck, it’s finally time to welcome a new era for the Imperial Erskineville! Unique in style, diverse in culture – we invite you to drink, dance, drag & dine in style: to celebrate self-expression, to share our passion for creative individualism, performance, dance and music, and to weave these quirks with seriously good food and killer cocktails.

We came into the Imperial for the Italian restaurant, needless to say this is NOT a restaurant, it’s basically an upscale pub. No tables to dine at, we had to sit on couches and wooden stumps instead of chairs. Also no service unless you go...More

Compared to the others in the area, this pub doesn't really stand out. Okay beer selection and nice building, but nothing that stands out.

The decor, vibe, staff and food are all amazing at Priscilla's. The share style food with a strong vegetarian skew is great for groups. We had six people and left really full and happy. The snapper and the half roasted cauliflower are stand out dishes....More
