Imperial Hotel



Sydney, Australia








583 sqm

The Imperial Hotel Erskineville, a historic and revered LGBQTI haven reborn, unfolds as a 'palace of pleasure.' Balancing fantasy with respect for its custodians, this reimagination embodies celebration, rediscovery and the gravity of a profound legacy.

The relaunch of this iconic venue into a dynamic cultural gem explores a theatrical blend of robust materials and a vibrant palette. Priscillas, the ground-floor restaurant, is a cabaret dream with hand-laid masonry, bespoke tiles, and repurposed lighting, paying homage to its cinematic legacy. Illuminated by fringed pendants, the main bar boasts a bespoke fresco ceiling mural.
