We’ve yet to meet someone in the community who doesn’t appreciate a Drag Queen performance. One of the easiest ways to see these amazing people perform, or at least get a flavour for what they do, is at a Drag Brunch. Here at Vada Magazine we’ve rounded up the best Drag Brunches planned over August and September.

Drag Brunch at Old Compton Brasserie

Drag Brunch at Old Compton Brasserie, Soho

Old Compton Brasserie, in the heart of Soho, has announced a series of Drag Brunches, following its first event like this during London Pride weekend. Starting 24 August, and scheduled monthly, guests can expect:

  • Shameless performances from some of London’s sharpest Drag Acts, singing, swaying and sashaying the day away
  • Delicious brunch plates
  • Bottomless cocktails presented beautifully in carafes, or unlimited prosecco

The brunch menu is as inclusive as one would expect from Old Compton Brasserie (read our previous review). Guests can make their drag brunch experience more boozy with the unlimited brunch cocktails or prosecco option. These include the Bloody Spicy Bloody Mary, garnished with crispy bacon, and the Smashed Grapes, a refreshing blend of vodka, Vermouth, St Germain, grapes and prosecco.
