Went for Sunday brunch with a group of ladies. Fabulous entertainment, good food, generous pours of mimosas and bloody marys. I suggest a designated driver, uber, cab or something if you are drinking.....they do not stop pouring. The show is fantastic. We all loved it.

This is a night club with food for drag queen performances. It is good for a big party. The performers try very hard, and do a reasonably good job, but lip synch the songs, and it is a bit hokey. The food is not bad...More
