The Best Drag Brunches in Houston
There are few things in life more sacred than brunch. For many, it’s the highlight of their entire week—even if they can’t remember all of it due to the effects of one too many mimosas. Fortunately, there are plenty of top-tier drag brunches in Houston that are lively enough to jog even the haziest of memories. We’re here to spill the tea on them. Whether you’re in the mood for a buffet-style extravaganza at Boheme or a traditional show at ReBar, there’s something on this list for every kind of drag bruncher.
The Drag Show Brunch at Boheme
Montrose mainstay Boheme has long been a favorite drinking spot for Houston’s LGBTQ+ community, and it’s even more so now due to its weekly Drag Show Brunch, which throws down every Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tickets for the shows, which feature some of the city’s most talented and lively drag performers, cost $35 per person. But don’t fret: food is included. Attending drag-show connoisseurs get to pick from Boheme’s expansive brunch buffet, which includes treats like Filipino biscuits and gravy, ham and cheese croissants, and french toast. For an extra $30, you can also get yourself a carafe of mimosas—required libations for any drag show!
Sunday Service Drag Brunch at ReBar
Sashay your way to ReBar for a full-service venue featuring Cajun-style comfort food, live entertainment, house-made cocktails, and a high-tech dance floor. Sunday’s are always a blast at ReBar for their showstopping Sunday Service Drag Brunch. The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. with shows beginning at noon and 2 p.m. If the resident DJs don’t have you grooving at this event, maybe ReBar’s seasonal brunch menu will, with favorites like shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, étouffée egg rolls, avocado toast, beignets, jambalaya balls, biscuits and gravy, and french toast. However, no brunch would truly be complete without mimosas, bellinis, champagne, and a house-made Bloody Mary to help you recover from an eventful Sunday. Tickets to the Sunday Service Drag Brunch are $15 per person. Brunches are held inside, so no matter the weather, the show will go on!
Saturgay Brunch & Bitch, Do You Even Brunch? at Hamburger Mary's
Eat, drink and be merry at Hamburger Mary’s weekend brunch drag shows. Saturgay Brunch is hosted by Lady Shamu at 11 a.m and 2 p.m. The day will be filled with a flow of mimosas and a variety of entertaining acts that rotate weekly. If you don’t get the chance to catch Saturday’s amazing performances, don’t worry. They pick right back up on Sunday for their Bitch, Do You Even Brunch show. Catch Sunday performances hosted by Lady Shamu and Dessi Love-Blake at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. There will be a delicious brunch buffet, drink and shot specials, and a boatload of fierceness.

The garden transforms the relaxed space for an afternoon of fun with Slay All Day: The Drag Queen Brunch show. Participate in alcohol-aided spelling bees, play bingo, sip on $20 bottles of champagne, and brunch on a rotating selection of food vendors. The best part of this afternoon spectacle is that entry is free! Book ahead as space is limited. While guests must be 21 to consume alcohol, minors are welcome to enjoy the show.
Drag Sunday Brunch at Electric FeelGood
While retro-inspired bar Electric FeelGood may be fixated on the ’90s, its monthly drag show is as modern as they come. The colorful bar hosts an hour-long drag show one Sunday every month that features the talents of celebrated local queens Muffy Vanderbilt, Dessie Love-Blake, and Lexus Chandelier. The show, which kicks off at noon, can get pretty packed, so it’s good to call ahead to reserve a table. If you’re planning on imbibing on your visit, then you’re in luck: the bar’s menu for the show includes $15 mimosa carafes, $6 Deep Eddy Bloody Marys, and a slew of $6 shots.
