Brunch menu had a large selection - from eggs, pancakes, salads and sandwiches. We ordered ham and cheese omelet, steak and eggs , hamburger and salmon with cream cheese and a bagel. The servers are all drag queens. The food was very good. Portions were quite large. Make a reservation.

I came here for the all you can drink brunch and show. I have to say the value was very much worth it for the show alone. It was Broadway classics, which I don't know Broadway that well, but the comedy they through into it as well made the show excellent. Food wasn't anything to brag about - actually it... More

I've been here a few times and have had a great time laughing and enjoying the drag show. A few things that might be important is the show runs about 2hrs. If you choose the 5pm, the first show, don't expect it to start on time and it'll be short from the 2hr time limit and you may be disappointed... More

Come back and give us a try on a weeknight when do only one show each night. Plus you can try your luck at B**chy Bingo or Sing your heart out... More

It's been said I'm part of the furniture at the Lips location in Atlanta, GA so I had to see if I could find a place on the wall of the one in NYC and boy did I. It's really nice, love the decor, staff is cool. I was given some great names to look out for from the Lips... More

Drag club and dinner show combined. Excellent performances by all of the queens and the food and drink was quite good. They are expert at moving large groups of people in and out without sacrificing the quality of the show. Went with a group of friends and a good time was had by all!

This was one of the best nights I had in New York. We booked to go to B**chy Bingo on the Wednesday night and it was absolutely brilliant. I could have gone back every night. The setting was grand with mirror balls and dark opulent decor, Frankie cocktail was there to service pre show drinks and the atmosphere was great.... More
