It is a fun gay bar with open area. I made a reservation for one, and they sat me at the outside top bar seating where I could see the shows. I am a straight female and found my self very comfortable hanging out there alone. The shows take place on and off throughout the night with different drag Queens... More

My friends and I came here as part of her bachelorette party/weekend. This place was so much fun! We all loved the show and had a great time! The show can be very interactive, so be warned if you're extremely shy! The bottomless mimosas were such a plus. Our waiter never let our glasses get empty. The service here is... More

The brunch was amazing! The entertainment gave me LIFE and the unlimited mimosas never stopped flowing. Didn't really eat my meal because I was too wrapped up in the show lol definitely the highlight of my trip and will be for years to come. Definitely will be going back anytime I'm in Miami :-)

I used to patronize this place and anf bring friends and business. Don't give money. They will rip you off. I paid the announcer $50 for my best friend's birthday to recognize him. They took my money and after several requests with rude remarks and attitude they took my money and did nothing. Fraudulent!! Bad karma don't tip the queens.

I think that I am a fairly open minded, and a generally conservative (but probably more libertarian minded) guy. So when my 13 year old daughter and my wife (who almost always cancels out my vote by her vote) expressed a very strong interest in seeing the Drag Queen performance, I kind of knew what I was in store for...

My friends and I went here on Sunday for drag brunch, and we had a blast! Palace offers two seatings - 11:30am and 2:00pm - and brunch + show lasts 2 hours. For roughly $40/person, you can choose from Belgian waffles, steak and eggs, a veggie frittata, and more PLUS bottomless house mimosas or bloody marys! All the food was... More

This was such a fun brunch for a bachelorette party! The drag show is amazing and just keeps getting better performer after performer. The waiters were wonderful at refilling the mimosas and for unlimited mimosas they were definitely not watered down. I was pleasantly surprised with the food as well. I would recommend getting there earlier than the started brunch... More
