Travel: Drink & Drag: First-Ever Drag Queen Bar and Gaming Venue Opens in Vegas

Drinkers, gamers, and bowlers will flock to the nation’s first drag queen staffed bar and gaming venue. Drink & Drag will celebrate its official grand opening on Las Vegas’ historic Fremont Street, Saturday, May 5.

This exciting new concept is brought to Downtown Las Vegas by the owner of the #1 gay nightclub in the country, Krave Nightclub. Much like Krave, Drink & Drag will be a haven for the LGBT community, but plans to dazzle straight clientele as well with fabulous drag performances and the same award-winning service Krave has provided Las Vegas for the last seven years.

The spacious 22,000-square-foot venue features 12 bowling lanes, billiards, 100-inch projector HD console gaming, interactive gaming chairs, air hockey, table-top board games, jewel-encrusted chandeliers, lounge seating and more. Guests will be served VIP style while bowling, shooting pool, or while enjoying multiplayer action on Playstation 3s. Drink & Drag also offers four lanes of private bowling, full bar, specialty drinks, cutting edge lighting and fully automated audio/video sequences to accent the upcoming performances.

Drink & Drag is expected to become a major draw for Downtown Las Vegas and will be opening on the second level of the Neonopolis (450 Fremont St., Ste 250), a 250000-square-foot entertainment complex and shopping center. Located in the former Jillian’s space, Drink & Drag is neighbored by the much buzzed Heart Attack Grill and overlooks the neon courtyard. With over 24 full-time drag queens, Drink & Drag may very well be the largest employer of drag queens in the United States.

“We are incredibly proud to share our vision of Drink & Drag with the public,” says Tyler Caiden, general manager of Drink & Drag. “After witnessing the recent mainstream popularity in Middle America of drag-focused TV shows, like ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and ‘Drag U,’ we decided it was the right time to offer that real-life experience on Fremont Street.”
