After closing its doors in September 2007, Paddington residents had almost given up on the old Imperial Hotel. But in late 2011, The Imperial welcomed us back into her arms – with a new, sophisticated fit out.

The Imperial is a far cry from your average pub. There are stylish lounges, courtyards and a swish new private boardroom for formal meetings. It's uber chic, modern and sleek. As part of this major revamp, the Imperial Social Club creates a sense of community in an otherwise isolated city. With running clubs, meat raffles, sailing safaris, Sunday night slow dancing and even art gallery tours, members of the Social Club are also entitled to discounts and free gifts.

Unlike most Paddington pubs, the prices at The Imperial are reasonable. The starters menu is perfect for a quick beer and a snack with dishes such as salt and pepper squid and picked pork croquettes. The mains include marinated vegie stack, parmesan crusted pork cutlet and organic Australian beef burger. The meals aren't huge but there are lots of choices to suit every taste and budget. For lovers of international drops, be warned, the wine list features only NSW wineries such as Chalkers Crossing, Tintilla Estate and De Bortoli. There is a great list of boutique beers and all your sparkling favourites such as Moet and Dom Perignon are all on offer should a special occasion demand.

With the Sydney Football Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground just a short walk down Oatley Road, it is great to have The Imperial Hotel back open.
