    Jordon Carnegie as ELVIS - "It's Now or Never" - AWESOME CLASS ACT!
    Decided to see this Elvis show on a whim, and had an incredibly fun and memorable time! The Palm Cabaret is an intimate venue, with a great view from every seat in the house, and a wonderful staff that aims to please. Jordon Carnegie is a Class Act, a truly AMAZING Showman, that pays homage to the KING in a very special way. I was blown away by his singing and moved by his passion and energy. You can tell he poured his heart and soul into his performance, through his live vocals, dance moves, and overall stage presence. Elvis would be proud. Everyone in the house, including myself, got into the concert and had a blast! This is a show for all audiences, couples, groups, or even going solo like yours truly. With great drinks, attentive service, and an excellent sound system, the Palm Cabaret is a definite must when visiting Puerto Vallarta. What a night! Thank you, Jordon Carnegie "Elvis", Thank You Very Much!

    Beyonce show was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
    The Beyonce show was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I forgot several times that I wasn't seeing the real Beyonce. The vocals, the visuals, the dancing, the choreography. She was nuanced. If you're even a mild Beyonce fan, you will love it. If you're a huge Beyonce fan, you will STILL love it. Cecil has been doing Beyonce for years and she's got. it. down. I was in PV for 11 days and this was my favorite thing that I did all trip! Don't miss out while she's still there!

    Jordan Carnegie tribute to ELVIS!
    Attended Jordan Carnegie’s tribute to Elvis and wow did he deliver! Non-stop action, 3 costume changes and spot on vocals. Perfect song selection giving a taste of the various periods from the career of Elvis. And not the typical kitschy Elvis tribute either but a heartfelt performance delivered by a hard working pro who let’s a bit of his humble nature show through at times. I highly recommend for a good evening’s entertainment!

    Alberto Ponce Livin La Vida Loca
    I went to see Alberto Ponce at his show Livin La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin and OMG he was so good and so were the dancers from Starboys. I've never seen Alberto move so much with such high energy. He did such a great job tonight, although he's always does a great job every time I see him but this was exceptional and I love him dearly, so if you're in Puerto Vallarta and you get a chance to go see this show he has one more coming up November 5th at 8pm so please go see it, you will not regret it he was that amazing. Anything Chris Lopez produces and does is also amazing. I am so proud of both of them.

    Boys on Fire - Fantasies was amazing!
    This is my second time watching Boys on Fire. I was there last season to see the International show. Director Sebastian Coronel has brought us another slew of great ideas to wake up our senses and re-live our fantasies! He certainly has some great ideas! All the dancers are out of this world. Amazing dancers that look like they can march anyone's fantasy! Highly recommended!

    Don't Miss Out on Boys on Fire
    This was my second time seeing Boys on Fire this season- and it has been well worth it. It is a great show that has now returned for its 3rd season. New and original scenes and new dancers! The service is great, the waiters coming around consistently to take drink orders. The show and experience is well worth the entry cover. I recommend going to see Boys on Fire at the Palm if you are in PV!

    Boys on Fire - Fantasies .......... a 12 out of 10 gold stars. Enjoyed every minute of it!
    Went to see Boys on Fire – Fantasies last night with a friend. I have to say this show is amazing, the dancing was fantastic, the dancers are so so so sexy, and the show’s high energy did not pause at any time during the performance. The hour flew by, it is a must see show if you are visiting PV. If, like me, you have seen the Boys on Fire shows during the prior 2 years, know that this is a new show with many new dancers, new concept; it is not a reconfiguration of the past shows, but an entirely new and entertaining production – definitely worth going again.

    Boys on Fire is HOT and FUN!
    I have been to The Palm many times and every time, I loved it! My favorite is Boys on Fire - I have seen it once this year and will go again and also have seen it a few times last year. It has hot guys, lots of energy, great music and overall, it is just a lot of fun!!! The Palm has nice air conditioning and table service for drinks! I will go again to Boys on Fire for sure! You should go!!!!

    Spectacular time with Mama Tits
    Great drinks and great shows! Mama Tits in particular is always a delight, and despite her place as the premier drag queen of Puerto Vallarta, she remains humble, approachable and down to earth. As for her shows, Mama will start with some jokes, tug on your heart strings, and make you feel beautiful things by the end, all while she and her backup singer perform live renditions of some of your favourite songs. For me it was more then worth the cost of admission.

Lady Zen is a supernova in San Miguel de Allende! We pay $25US for reserved seats at the best reserve seat venue in town because SMA Adores Lady Z!
We couldn’t believe we could see our beloved Lady Z. right up the street from our Pier 57 condo—loved the show so much we went again a week later & she had completely changed it! Even better!
Her voice is trained & expressive with strong modulation & intonation. Her vibe is warm. Her politics are love & caring. She touches us deeply. We love her❤️ You will, too🥰. Sing out, Lady Zen🎶❤️🎵

When planning our trip to PV my partner and I were definitely making it a point to find the best drag shows to go to. Our research led us to the Palm Cabaret and we were not disappointed! The whole experience and service we received was top notch and they take COVID precautions very seriously because each group was sat in their own plexiglass encased section. While not ideal, it did not let the star of the night, Sutton Lee Seymour, stop the crowd from really getting into the show. While I think there were about 12-15 people there for the show, it truly felt like the room was completely full with the energy Sutton was giving and pulling out of the crowd!
I think it's also important to note that on top of the hilarious and entertaining show that she put on, you could really tell Sutton is a truly dedicated queen. I say this because earlier that day we were hanging out on the beach and were (politely) approached by Sutton who was promoting her show. We had some nice conversation and got the details, we were already considering The Palm for her show and this sealed the deal!

Go here for great (safe) drag!

In a world that takes itself so very seriously, it is a sheer joy to enter the world of the Dueling Drag Divas. They poke fun at our favorite musical giants, from Cher to Dolly to Elvis, Andrea Bocelli, Amy Winehouse, Tina Turner and Judy Garland. Joanna’s full throttled raunch plays against Chi Chi's candy-coated daggers. A highlight for me was Joanna’s Amy Winehouse. Dressed in a sequined Union Jack mini-sheath, she begins, “They tried to make me go to rehab and you said” and we shouted, “Go! Go! Go!” Well, as we all know, she didn’t. And neither does Joanna. Chi Chi’s dynamic moves as Tina show off her million dollar legs. They should be insured as should her dress, her boots and her voice. Their Bocelli and Elvis duel show these girls have range and voices that are up to the challenge. Underneath all the lighthearted fun is some serious musical talent. When Chi Chi breaks into Piaf's Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, our friend Toot’s jaw literally dropped and it stayed there through their Garland encore. The show ended with whoops and hollers for these two generous entertainers. The four of us who attended Wednesday’s show highly recommend Chi Chi Rones and Joanna’s Dueling Drag Divas and the Palm Cabaret and Bar. A great place, a great show..

Miss Conception's Villans @thepalmcabaret is hillariously entertaining. Her choice of villans and costume changes had the audience wowed from start to finish. Her quick witted banter and audience connection had us all laughing out loud. Her voice is magical and she sings the movie songs like they were her own. Her costumes and voice are broadway quality. A must see while in Puerto Vallarta. The palm has many Broadway quality acts this season, check them out while your on Vacation @missctoronto

We visited The Palm for the first time and attended two shows with friends. We were disappointed with both shows.

For "Boys on Fire" we had tickets for a 9:30 pm show. The show did not even start until 10:10 pm - with no explanation for the significant delay. Many performances involved 3 or 4 performers on stage performing in sync - or at least that was what was supposed to happen. However, it was quite obvious that many times their timing was off. Overall, most numbers were just okay. Twice during the show there was an "advertisement" for an upcoming show with a different performer coming on stage and two other times we were asked for donations.

I was very excited to see Seth Sikes based on his YouTube videos. The frustrating thing with his show was that he came across like it was his very first performance. He kept having to look at his notes (constantly) to see what was next in his show - and even muttered a couple of times "now where am I?". Two or three other times he went over to the pianist and then told him what he wanted to sing.

Bottom line, Sikes show came across as awkward and almost as if he and the pianist had not rehearsed in advance. That was surprising considering the show had played for 3 weeks before we attended. If you plan to attend because of how crisp and professional Seth Sike's YouTube videos appear online, be prepared to be disappointed.

I sincerely hope these were just two unfortunate events. However, based on them I will not be rushing back to The Palm.

First of all... the palms is wonderful with their shows.,....

We brought some friends to the Kim Kuzma show and WOW can this lady rock a house!
Kim's talents are incredible and her interaction with the guest push it over the top!
She sang for over an hour continually and all four of us danced and clapped. One of the BEST SHOWS we have seen and the friends wanted to go back for the second show-as they just LOVED KIM and her music!

I cannot say enough about the band - Piel Canela. a happy and kind group of musicians that you can tell enjoy playing for you as much as you will enjoy them. Take all of your friends and visitors to the show. Right now they are playing Friday nights at 7:30. Go for a drink before right out front in the lounge. You can buy tickets online from the Palms website. Get ready to smile because the flamenco,
Gypsy King classical guitar style will have you singing and dancing for hours after you leave. Oh, and get ready for the JOY that this performance will bring you! I bring all of my guests to see Piel Canela and you can tell they leave feeling like they have truly experienced the magic of music in Mexico. The show is approx 1.5 hours long.

Kim Kuzma has never sounded better and her British Invasion is a fabulous show. From Annie Lennox to George Michael, her interpretations of hits by some of Britain's greatest stars are truly inspiring. She ranges from soulful and wistful to sassy and wildly exuberant. Her vocal range is astonishing and she brings the kind of energy to her performance that makes you want to return again and again. Her band is unbelievably talented, especially Eduardo Leon on guitar. This is the best show in Puerto Vallarta this season. Thank you Kim. You hit it out of the park once again.

We went to see Seth Sykes perform Judy and Barbra songs. It's only a small place with maybe 60 or 70 seats, but a great atmosphere. The audience was 90% gay men (surprise!) I did think the tickets were a bit expensive at 600 pesos each for a show barely over an hour long, and you are expected to buy at least one drink each too, but to be honest I can't really find too many bad things to say about the experience. I noticed a poor review of the show below but all I can say is that the performance I saw was great and he wasn't fluffing his lines or lacking confidence. It was his last show I believe, so perhaps he wanted to finish on a high!

We have already been to see this new show twice and will be going to see it again.
These are two very talented and beautiful performers and their musical repertoire is unprecedented.
The musical range of their voices, the brilliant choreography, the exceptional live band, the costume changes combined with the memory lane videos of each of the Decades made it definitely worth going to see this high energy show twice. There is so much to take in and absorb.
The audience was engaged and dancing in their seats until the well deserved standing ovation.
We would definitely recommend this “all new” very professional show to all UsTwo fans and new visitors to PV.
