The Imperial Hotel


Let’s have a kiki! (a big gay party to you and me). You won’t find a better drag queen in Sydney – this is THE birthplace of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! Need we go on? Where else can you see drag performances of Madonna and Catherine Zeta Jones (re-enacting Chicago) on the same stage on the same night?  The Imperial Hotel is an institution and you can’t fail to have a wicked time.

Pop in to the Cabaret Bar on Tuesdays for cheap beer and Bingay (that’s gay bingo to you and I), with the infamous Tora Hymen and her potty mouth number calling, and prizes which include the much sought after bikini clad Bingay gnome (now sitting proudly on our desk). Just don’t prematurely shout Bingay! Snacks and homemade cakes baked by Dot soak up the drinks and they even do table service so you won't miss a number. Its eyes down and shut up at 8pm sharp!

Fancy a boogie, and a bit more action? Grab a schooner and party in the basement. There‘s enough heat and sweaty hotties here to match Bondi beach in the height of summer. If you can’t beat them, join them. Cheap drinks, slutty chicks and topless men. We can’t think of a better place to have a Kiki!
