It’s been three decades and a cool $6 million in the making, but The Imperial Erskineville is finally unveiling the third phase of its epic redevelopment and we couldn’t be more excited.
Introducing Imperial UP, the latest Italian restaurant and bar to join the Sydney food scene and FYI you can go there right now!
This place is tipped to be the next big thing. Yep, with a huge courtyard (it fits 200 people), this rooftop bar ain’t no ordinary affair. Cue gold mirror-clad pizza ovens, stone mosaic bar countertops and a plethora of pop art and sculptures, this place is post-modern glamour to a tee.
Menu-wise, the legends here have all the goods. We’re talking all your fave Italian dishes like pizza, pasta, delivered with a flamboyant twist, and a selection of vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free dishes for those peeps with special dietary requirements (you know who you are). There’s also an extensive alcohol menu that offers an array of jugs and delish cocktails that’ll remind you of the good times and have you dancing well into the night.
With an epic line-up of events in the work—we’re talking Explore Yourself Sundays (launching 15 July), Lip Sync competitions, a Drag Party lunch and an open-air same sex wedding chapel—we just know this’ll be a place you and the gang are going to be spending a lot of time.
