If the question is Miami drag brunch, the first answer is Palace. Miami Beach’s longest-running drag bar holds down Ocean Drive with two bottomless brunch seatings each Friday, Saturday and Sunday (11am and 2pm) and a single seating on Mondays (12pm). For $50, enjoy a choice of brunch dishes and bottomless mimosas on the expansive outdoor patio as you take in the iconic looks, legendary lip-syncing and death-defying acrobatics of Palace’s hard-working queens.
Does a more exuberant celebration of our best, most authentic selves exist than drag? This is 100-percent rhetorical—the answer is, obviously, no. A performance art steeped in history and instrumental in bringing LGBTQ culture to the foreground, drag is beautiful, fantastical, and inextricable from the fabric of our queer communities. It’s also really, really fun to watch. From day to night, Miami is blessed with all manner of drag: drag bingo, drag pageants, entire drag festivals and the sacred drag brunch in Miami, of which we have more than a few to choose from, some of which even offer the highly desired bottomless brunch option. Just north of Fort Lauderdale, gay destination Wilton Manors also serves up ample drag brunch. If you’re looking for an excuse to book your next drag brunch, stop right now. You really don’t need one. Below, find our picks for the best drag brunches in Miami to celebrate literally anything.
