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

Stopped here from a bike ride along the beach front as the music was blarring and people were cheering, having great fun. The drag queens were putting on a very entertaining show. It's done outside so draws quite the crowds both inside the bar, on the street and sidewalks across the street. It was standing room only. Get there early... More

This is a must for every couple on a Friday or Saturday night but probably best without young kids unless you are prepared to be asked questions about drag queens. I say Queens. They are royalty! Enjoy the show and the food and drinks are pretty good too. Arrive plenty early or you will end up standing.

I go to Miami at least once a month, and I always end up going to Palace Bar. Open all day long, great for food and amazing for music and shows. Its part of the essence of Miami, and always worth a visit. My last visit was on NYE and although we didnt book a table for food we went... More

Went to the 2pm Sunday Brunch Drag Show and loved every minute. The entertainers are great, the guy playing the drums solo was amazing, the MC - very funny. $40 will get you endless mimosas and a simple set lunch & the best live show on Ocean Dve. Lots of fun, highly recommend. PS - they do this on Saturdays... More
