“Great night out but....”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

A group of 8 of us went here and we were the only ones that had been before. The last 2 times the show was awesome, but there is a different program now.
The entertainers are amazing, fantastic voices and great actors but it is a pity that the girls have to lower themselves to intermittant porn shows that are completely irrelevant to anything and totally unneccesary. If I was going to a strip show then that's fine but a Cabaret ?
The show is fantastic on it's own, very funny and well put together so i don't understand why the sex scenes ?
Wait staff are great, very welcoming and play their roles well.
Food is surprisingly really good and a nice serving too. Drinks are expensive though.
This is a really great venue and a fun night out and as i said the actors are truly talented but keep the added risque components in mind when booking. This show might not be for everyone where as it used to be.

“What a great night out!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

This is a well polished act, from the welcome outside right down to the "friendly face" in the bathroom. The show is brilliant and the food great. We loved Dracula's Cabaret Restaurant.

“good fun night out”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We went along expecting to have a good night out & that's what we got. We had VIP tickets which were well worth while as we were greeted at the door by the cast & the entertainment started from there . After having a glass of champagne & nibbles we took the ghost train to the dining/stage area . The service was great & our waiter Dorian didn't stop all night & is very good at his job as were the other wait staff. The meal was very nice & we all had the Pork belly which was delicious & I enjoyed the chocolate coffin for dessert - many found it too rich although I noted they did do fruit salad for a diabetic at another table. The drinks are expensive but I didn't notice too many baulking at the prices with many buying the $43 fishbowl. The entertainment was very good with the warm up act good fun & these guys are very talented & really have fun at their job. The show is advertised as R18 & that it is but it is also very entertaining although I would have preferred more Pink Floyd instead of the horse item (very odd) . We could have listened to them play & sing for another hour but it was nice to go back to the bar & meet the cast & wait staff & have photos taken with them - a really nice bunch of people & great costumes-yes you do have to wait to pay your alcohol bill before you leave but that is prudent business management - we enjoyed our night out & thought it was good value for money.

“A good night out despite reservations”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We booked the show and used an upgrade voucher we got in a magazine. As the day went on I began to think that it may not be suitable for Linda as it was a burlesque show.

We walked to the show and got drenched on the way. We almost turned around but did not.

It turned out to be a really good night - great singing, good acting, and very funny sketches. The food was good but not great. The staff and performers were very friendly and quick to help.

“Sad to see Drac's show go down hill”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Have been going to Drac's show on & off for the past 14 years . Went last night 1st March '14 & was ready for a good night of Vampires that put on a good night & a good laugh with family & friends. Have watch the show go down hill over the years , which has been sad to watch ... If you want to watch Burlesque show with almost naked girls for half the night , that is what you get now , gone are the good laughs & fun night that was . If i wanted to see a sex show , i would have gone to one !!! Also the meals came out to quick , plus its hard to eat your meal in the dark while the ACT is on , we should be given time the have our meals with lights on !! So i really think you need to fit your game a bit to the management of Draculas. Also i could not believe the show finished at 10.30 !!! THAT WAS IT .. OVER & DONE . This is one night i always looked forward to , not now .. lift your game with the show & get it back to the way it use to be .
