This past weekend, iconic drag star Noel Leon once again stopped traffic at Palace Bar’s famous Sunday brunch, on Ocean Drive in Miami. Unfortunately, this is one of the last high-kicking street performances at the legendary LGBT bar/restaurant…since the space has been sold, and is closing its doors on July 4th weekend. Palace Bar has been the #1 hotspot in South Beach for the past 29 years, and is currently looking for a new home. Queens that started their careers at Palace, including Geraldine, Missy Meyakie LePaige, Noel Leon, TP Lords, Tiffany Fantasia, and RuPaul’s Drag Race star Latrice Royale, are expected to hit the street-stage at Palace for their closing show.

Thomas Donall (Palace owner):
“The truth of the matter is that this situation presents us with a fantastic opportunity to grow,” he continues. “We’re going to find a new place that has the same character but offers a bigger performance space that better suits the needs of our changing community.”
