PALACE is the first and only LGBT bar and restaurant on world famous Ocean Drive, in the heart of South Beach's historic Art Deco district and located across from "the gay beach" (1052 Ocean Drive, near 11th street corner), which means the party always moves from the sand to the Palace. It's a party with our entertaining queens and their outrageous drag shows 7 days a week! See you at the Legendary PALACE!

The drag brunch was amazing. One of the best drag shows I’ve ever been to, great food, and bottomless mimosas topped up before you knew you were empty. Will be back on my next trip to South Beach!

Disappointing visit to the Palace. Had expected full on cabaret / show while eating. Host was sitting all the way through introducing acts, very poor sense of presence ... tells me host was not interested in the events of the night. The acts were excellent when performing, but with long gaps between each one. Food order arrived incorrectly. Sent back and arrived cold. Sent back again, it was edible. Our waiter was excellent. It was the kitchen who was at fault.

I arrived 15 minutes early and was seated in what I was told was "the best seat in the house." It was a great seat. I had front row views to all the action! $45/person is a great price considering what you get for it. I had the Risotto Allo Champagne and it was amazing! The 2 hour unlimited mimosa was also lovely. Our waiter, Ezekial, almost never allowed our glasses below half full! He was awesome and had such a friendly spirit! The show was fun, and if you need change to tip the entertainers, your waiter will make it! I've been to many shows, but never one in this type of space! It was worth every minute!

Went to the Drag Brunch and it was awesome! Our waiter was fantastic, the mimosas were flowing, the food was great, and the show was so much fun. If you don't have singles, the wait staff will make change for you. The only complaint would be that our view was obstructed when the performers would walk toward the street and our seat was in what seemed to be a wind tunnel. With a better seat, this would have been the easiest 5 star review to give.

SO. MUCH. FUN!! Sunday brunch with endless mimosas (I know. I had you at "endless mimosas"!) I went to the Palace's Sunday brunch for the first time two years ago while on vacation with a couple girlfriends and had a great time. This time around, I vacationed with the Hubby and I KNEW I had to bring him to Sunday brunch. As always, the folks at the Palace did not disappoint! It took a while for us to get served only because there was some confusion as to who our table belonged to, but once the wait staff figured things out. . . it was on!!! My throat was burning from all the yelling and hooting I did during the show. My husband had the best time and can't wait to go back again. We spent a week in Miami and The Palace was the highpoint of our entire trip!! A definite must! Come ready to let loose and have fun.

I felt so special on my Birthday. The server was very attentive and excellent. The hostess/MC is awesome!! Entertainment was so good. Only thing is that the food wasn’t as good as the first time we were there. My pasta was dry. The first time I was there that pasta was EVERYTHING! Maybe it wasn’t the same chef. Overall my bday celebration was a success. Will definitely be back!

We went for a Sunday show at 2pm. The show was very lively, exciting, interactive, and fun, and the queens were fabulous!

The bottomless mimosas were great and the staff was very good about refilling them so that you never had an empty glass :)

The steak & eggs was also very good, especially the potatoes it came with. I don't usually like peppers, but whatever they used was literally the best thing and I couldn't get enough of it.

Others in our party got the chicken piccata and also said it was very good.

We came for a bachelorette party, and our girl got to go up near the end of the show and dance in front of everyone, which was super fun. Everyone in our group had so much fun and we all agreed it was the best thing we did on our trip to Miami Beach!
