We attended the 9pm show this past Sunday and were very disappointed. While the performers looked great and tried hard, their lack of talent was clear from the start. Had they stayed on stage long enough to entertain and then come through the audience for...More

Having looked at your many reviews (level 3 on Trip Advisor!! I can only aspire to such levels) I'm going out on a limb to say you may want to avoid nightclubs that do shows of any kind. You seem to like hotels and restaurants...More

Strictly for the straight crowd of Key West searching for a little tacky entertainment. Only one of the three drag queens during our visit had any talent and was able to actually lip sync her songs. The other two simply paraded around the room fetching...More

This show was well worth the $15 cover. There are 3 drag queens performing at each show and they all did a great job. There is a lot of audience interaction and the performers get up close and personal. Photos are allowed and tipping makes...More

The club is nice, the server was polite and the drag show was outstanding. Really a blast. My wife and I did the 9:00 pm Sunday night show and the 3 performers worked their tails off for over 2 hours. Funny, witty, high energy. Go!...More

Such fun watching three wonderful male entertainers performing acts like lady gaga, Cher, Adele and many more. It's a 15 dollar cover charge, drink range around eight dollars. Bring dollar bills to tip the performers. This was fun for all, quite enjoyable

A very entertaining show for the price. Though most of the songs are lip synced the entertainers are funny and engaging.

Number one- bring singles. We had no idea about the tipping thing. The only other show of this kind that I’ve been to was in a small Florida town where tipping was not the norm. We were totally embarrassed not to have known in advance....More
