After several nights of passing this place on our way to other places further down Duval and having collected a few brochures, we finally decided to take in the 11 o'clock show one night. We got there a little early, paid a $2 cover, and hung out a while, taking in the atmosphere. When you walk into the dark club, there's a bar to your left and a raised platform area to your right, with lots of tables and another bar. All the tables were taken, but the rest of the bar wasn't very full. Just in front of you is a concrete dance floor, illuminated with a disco ball and different colored lights. A few people were dancing to the techno music they played. In front of the dance floor is a curtained stage.
The crowd there was mostly tourists and spring breakers, cameras in hand, waiting for the show.
The show opened with a drag queen, dressed in black leather from head-to-toe, singing a Cher song. After another song, another drag queen joined her, dressed in a red leather outfit. A fake fight was staged, and the first drag queen ended up backstage. The second proceeded to sing an Adam Sandler song, and a few others, changing outfits as she went.
Each drag queen sang one song while walking through the audience. They were followed by a spotlight and many patrons gave them dollar bills and took pictures. They would also make comments about the audience and grab people.
It was a fun and unique experience and for $2, it's definitely something you should check out in Key West.
