New York’s ultimate drag show palace, restaurant and dining experience is celebrating two decades of entertainment.

Lips was co-founded by visionary, Yvonne Lame, along with investors Michael Pacca, Paul Galluccio and Robert DeBenedictis, in the West Village 20 years ago, and has grown into a nationwide chain with five locations in Atlanta, New York, Fort Lauderdale, San Diego and Chicago.

“Fans love the uniqueness of the Lips experience. We are more than a stage show because our performers are the waitresses too. The interaction is unparalleled, the access unequaled, and that’s what makes Lips special,” Lame said.

In addition to nightly Vegas-style drag shows, Lips hosts special event evenings including Dragalicious Karaoke, Glitz and Glam Saturdays and Dinner with the Divas.

“We have an incredibly loyal gay clientele that fill our weekday dinner shows and Sunday Broadway Brunch,” Lame said. “But the weekend is bachelorette central. Ladies appreciate drag queens because, like us, they love fashion and makeup and they correctly view our transformations as a tribute to their beauty.”
