Well-known Sydney gay venue the Imperial Hotel is set to reopen its doors later this year after closing three years ago.

Pending council approval, the Erskineville hotel could open as early as September.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the pub is also in talks to host the revamped Sydney Fringe Festival when it opens.

This would see the rejuvenation of the festival which folded in 2002.

The Imperial Hotel is a drag venue made famous in the film Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
