I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Come and visit the spiritual home of Priscilla - The Imperial Erskineville for an entertaining evening. This hotel has been an iconic building since 1983 and is a beacon of hope for the LGBTQIA community. If the front bar area looks familiar, it is because it was used in the opening and closing scenes of The Adventures of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert.
Reopening just prior to the 2018 Mardi Gras after a 6 million dollar renovation, three levels of tastefully decorated fun have been created. The sophisticated decor is sympathetic to the era of the building and tips its tiara to the past. On the ground floor is the front bar and Priscillas where Drag & Dine is on offer seven nights a week. There is a rooftop bar, function area, Imperial UP Italian restaurant and the Basement performance and dance space.
Even if you have not booked in to Priscilla's, you are welcome to have a drink and get something to eat from the bar whilst watching the performers strut their sassy stuff. We watched part of a performance before heading down to the Basement and loved the light hearted tongue in cheek antics of the trio of glamorous 'girls'.
The food is also inclusive with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free offerings readily available. Different theme nights are a regular occurrence and special events such as the Melbourne Cup are celebrated.
As long as you are over 18, there is something fabulous here for you!
