A rollicking end-of-year party across all three levels of The Imperial in Erskineville.
There's no way the newly revamped Imperial Hotel was going to celebrate its first New Year's without some serious fireworks. And indeed, the ever-vibrant and proudly LGBTQIA+-friendly pub is wrapping up 2018 with a bang, hosting a huge NYE fiesta for party people of all persuasions over its three levels.
From midday on December 31, the super keen can get things rolling up on the Imperial Up rooftop, where the prosecco and pizzas will be flowing hard and fast all afternoon.
Then, the pub's dynamic 'drag and dine' destination Priscilla's will be dishing up the ultimate New Year's food situation, with a complimentary glass of bubbly for anyone indulging in one of the kitchen's feasting menus. Best to make a booking ASAP if you want a table.
And from 9pm, you'll need a ticket as the official party NYE Thing fires up. A diverse and jam-packed lineup of live tunes is planned, as hosted by legendary duo ETC ETC and Jojo Zaho. Expect to ring in the new year with help from some of the city's top queer talent, including The Magda Szubanskis, Cunningpants, Smithers, Nipslip, The Shady Ladies, Maple Behaviour and more.
