Lips

1421 E. Oakland Park Blvd. Oakland Park, FL 33334 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-567-0987

Location Description:

You don't go to Fort Lauderdale's Lips to eat but to be eaten: The drag queens and divas who patrol the crowd have a sharp eye for a sweet little morsel like you to chew on, so wear your thickest skin. Dinner shows, with a full three-course menu, are at 8:15 or 8:30 Tuesday through Sunday and offer a different theme each night (Bitchy Bingo on Wednesdays); the popular Gospel Brunch on Sunday plays at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to a mix of straight couples, elderly tourists, bachelorette parties, and gay blades celebrating their birthdays. Continental entrées of steak, chicken, lamb chops, salads, and sandwiches don't rise far above average, but the show is a hoot and worth every penny. Sunday Brunch is the best bargain, with all-you-can-drink mimosas and bloodies.
