Lips: The ultimate dining experience with a twist

When in Manhattan, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you can do. It’s tempting to go for the obvious choices: Broadway and dinner. But, both options are quite pricey. Is it possible to do both?

The answer is yes (if you don’t mind not seeing a Broadway show)! Look no further than Lips Drag Show in Midtown on 227 E 56th St, New York. According to “NYC Drag Show”, Lips is “the ultimate drag show and dining experience.” This show has amazing entertainment that will make you never want to leave. If you are having any special occasion coming up including birthdays, sweet 16’s, bachelor or bachelorette parties and so on… come to Lips.

According to “NYC Drag Show”, “At Lips we do our best to shock you and your guests into laughter and applause. Lips showplace has been a New York staple for over two decades with a full stage show, disco lighting and club sound system.” You get to see an amazing show with a 3-course meal for a low price (starting at $20.95). With multiple options, you pick a main meal and you are offered a salad, dessert and different types of soda. Of course, you can pay extra for alcoholic drinks, if you wish to.

 

To me, the food isn’t the best, but the entertainment will make you dance, sing and laugh. Not only do the drag queens perform, but they are also your servers. While the drag queens are performing, you can also tip them. Be generous! The beautiful drag queens really put on a show and you will never forget their magnificent performance.

If you are celebrating something, expect to be brought onstage. For celebrations, they bring up whoever’s birthday it is to celebrate with them.
