Excellent place to get together with your girls for a fantastic time. The crowd is very energetic and friendly so is the staff. I had the best time here with my friends!

Went to Sunday Broadway Brunch last weekend and OMG it was the best. Ginger Snapt did all the best from Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors and even defied gravity in Wicked! All of Broadways greatest hits plus bunch with unlimited mimosas and bloody marys for $20. The food was your average brunch fare of eggs, pancakes, eggs benedict, etc. I had the smoked salmon plate which was great! The drinks flowed freely all afternoon. The new Lips is a a great space but as I found out reserve early as brunch sells out two weeks in advance. Bravo Ladies of Lips- You are the new queens of Broadway!

Went to Lips to celebrate with a group of friends last Saturday and it was over the top! Unlike other places where the queens dance in the aisles, Lips is a true Drag Showpalace with a full stage and a real show! Ariel Sinclair rocks! We saw the glitz and glamour show and the Laides of Lips pulled out all the stops. Our waiter??/?? waitress the Lovely All Beef Patty took care of us and kept the cocktails flowing. The frozen cosmo's are super strong. The place also has a full menu and the filet mignon was tender and tasty. Be prepared as this place is packed on the weekends. This was a perfect start to a night on the town.

Was sorely disappointed with LIPS despite advertisements claiming the place as fun. Attended on a Saturday (2.25.12) for a birthday celebration with friends expecting a great time and was floored with the overall experience---terrible! The place is suitable for a recent transplant to the City or a Midwestern tourist with plaid shorts and colored socks worn with sandals at a hefty price. Please save your money. You?ll be better off going to Lucky Cheng?s in the E. Village for a more City-adult-cooler vibe. The show was ok, at best. Food completely sucked; we didn?t finish the dishes. Drinks average. Overall vibe was very Time-Squarish with a twist of a sweet sixteen bash.

A friend brought me to Lips last night and I thought, OK this might be ok, but it wasnt just ok, IT WAS FABBBBULOUS!\r\n\r\nThe hostess Ariel Sinclair was so funny I never stopped laughing all night long. The show included lip syncing, live singing, Cher, Madonna and the hostess having her way with the audience. The place was packed with ervething from bacheloettes, to queens, to old society folk from the Upper East Side. I heard Lips moved to this new show palace recently and it is spectacular, as the host said its like ""Beatlejuice designed Ken and Barbies dream house on acid"". Huge chandeliers, jewels, fake pink leapord skin fur wall paper and about a million pounds of glitter.\r\nThe food was good to. I had the filet mignon which was thick and juicy and for dessert we had a foot high piece of delicious red velvet cake.\r\nI reccomend LIPS to everyone. It is a night out you will never forget! Bravo Ladies. Thanks!

We went there for my best friend's 25th birthday last month. We had a lot of fun. Got a fun (and surprisingly accurate) reading from a colorful, hillarious tarot reader. Drag waitress was very nice and attentive. Very flamboyant, over-the-top, and raunchy drag queens, just the way I like 'em :o).Drinks were delicious. \r\n I have to say though that the food was not that good and personally, felt it was too expensive. And while there were a few memorable performances (Hanky Panky and F- Me are permanently burned into my memory lol), a good chunk of them were sort of bland. The two main hostesses seemed to be in a rush getting all the bday folks, brides-to-be, and contests on and off the stage so it took the fun out of those parts a little bit. But all in all, it was a great, fun night.\r\nThe queens are what really makes this place worth revisiting.

I am from California and this was my first time visiting New York. Our first night we decided to check out Lips because we had heard so many great things about it. As soon as we walked in we knew we were going to have a blast! The atmosphere is so welcoming and inviting and all of the Drag Queens are so friendly and interactive with the tables. The decor is fun and beautiful and theThe food was amazing, Lobster raviolis, and shrimp fetticini alfredo were both delicious and the drink special was frozen cosmos that we couldn't get enough of. The Drag Queens made us funny baloon shapes to play with and the show they put on was incredible and over the top. Our favorite performance was Beyonce's Single Ladies. The crowd went wild. There were lots of birthdays and bachelorette parties. Overall it was one of the most exciting nights in NYC. Next time I am in NYC Lips is a must!!! \r\n

I wanted to take my sister out for one last wild night before she got married. We found LIps on the internet and it looked promising. So I gathered ten of my most fun friends and planned for a fabulous night. When we got there, we waited forever. And there was no one there. When we were finally seated, we ordered a round of drinks that took another oddly long amount of time. then when another table arrived, forget about it. we were ignored most of the rest of the evening. They could seem to get it together. The show was short and not very exciting. We tried our best to have a good time, but the expensive menu was terrible. And we left feeling like it was a complete waste of money and time. Please don't believe any of the hype. It was very disappointing.

Is this what drag has come to ? Messy messy messy. Oh honey...the ""celebrity impersonations"" were tragic. I couldn't tell who was trying to be what ! ""Dolly Parton"" looked more like Dog the Bounty Hunter ! I think the guy who looked like more like Howard Stern was suppose to be Katy Perry ? Ugh. The food was terrible and expensive. The service was nonexistent. Just bad all around. Ugh.

OMG! What can you say about Ginger Snapt! Is she really crazy. Like a Carrot Top crazy Energizer Bunny on crack! One joke after the next and she never stops. Plus all the ""girls"" were over the top great. We were at dinner with the Dinner with the divas and the place was packed. Diana Ross, Mary J Blige, Lady GaGa, Dolly Parton, Katy Perry and more were there. We had a party for my office and everone loved it. Ask for a table up front as the place is really big. The new space is beautiful, with a full stage show now! The food is also pretty good, most of us had filet mignon. The drinks are also strong so beware! We will be back again soon! Love It!

I traveled all the way to the new location only to find it wasn't worth the trip. You can give a place a fresh coat of paint, but it didn't change the fact that the food was still horrible ...which we waited forever for. And we kept trying to flag down our waiter, but she was paying no attention or just couldn't be found. The place is much bigger but made the it feel even emptier than usual. It lacked the intimate and personable atmosphere the old place had. Everything seemed rushed and disorganized. The show was lame and in the end we were completely disappointed and regretted paying so much and getting so little. I would never go back again. :(

All I can say is my group had a great time. Food, show and new venue are out of sight. To add to a great time, we all got free passes to a dance club (Webster Hall).

Loved the show and the food was not bad at all. The whole experience was unique and that's really what I was hoping for. My waitress was named Skyla and she performed a song after taking our order. Really talented and funny. I recommend going there if you want an interesting and fun evening. For other reviewers that gave this place one star... get a life. Just by reading those reviews you can tell they have no idea how to enjoy themselves. I hope something bad happens to them.

I went by myself to the new location on 56 street for dinner. The Salmon was very good. The show was great . There were at least 150 girls there having the best time . Every one was very friendly. I am a guy and I had a great time and stayed for the second show. A Fun Time

Spectacular! Lips really is in a showpalace now! Reminds me of being in Las Vegas.\r\n\r\nAll Beef Patty was bitchy as ever and the showhostess was fabulous! We missed Yvonne Lame, but the girls told us she now in the old folks home now.\r\n\r\n Food was really good to Filet Mignon very tender.\r\n\r\nMake reservations early as the place was packed all night long,

I spent a lot of time and money organizing my birthday celebration. It was a hassle trying to get someone even return my call and then I got a bunch of miss information, which should have been a big red flag. Once I got there the place was tiny and dirty. The service was awful and the food was really bad. I figured the food wasn't going to be that great, but not as really disgusting as it turned out to be. But I thought the show might make up for some of the initial disappointment. It wasn't. The show wasn't really a show at all. Just the waiters doing very unenthusiastic songs. They could barely keep up with the lip singing. It was a mess. I can't get that night back, but maybe this review will save somebody else from wasting the time, energy and money on Lips. Just saying....

It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. I expected a lot more considering the huge amount of money we spent that evening. Food and drink was way overpriced for what we ending up getting ...bland small portions. The show was so short ...no stage. Just the servers running around the small cramped dining room.

I wanted to celebrate my best friends bachlorette party and found Lips website online. They claimed to be such a fun place for such a party. Unfortunately it wasn't so. I didn't expect the food to be good and it wasn't. But I did expect to have a good time, and I didn't. The waitress didn't make us feel special. Just the opposite. I think she had something against us. We were ignored and thrown attitude. The ""show"" was so short and lackluster. Really boring. Very disappointing...

It was my first time at a drag queen show and I LOVED IT!! It was so much fun how the they get the audience involved. The drinks were sooo yummy. The decoration was fabolous. The only thing that I did not like was that they forgot to bring out my food. There was 8 of us and they brought theirs but not mine. It took a while to get our waitress's attention but finally she noticed and it took another half hour after that to get my food. Other than that, everything else was really good!

this is the type of place that is for people who don't know what a wild really is, but think that this is. Very Bridge and Tunnel. While there are drag queens working here, this is by no means a drag bar.

Best place to go for a birthday, bachelorette party ,or girls night out. All the waitresses are drag queens, and love to tease and grope all their guests. Every saturday they lip sync to fun songs. The food and drinks are great, all with crazy names like The RuPaul, grilled chicken and potatoes, and a blow job shot. Just make sure not to bring any straight men with you, the most likely won't enjoy being groped and getting lap dances from the waitresses. They also have a queen that makes balloon strap ons, whips, hand cuffs, pretty much and body part and dirty thing you can think of. If you don't mind having your chest grabbed or getting lap dances, than you'll have the best night of your life here!

The food and drinks are great, all with crazy names like The RuPaul, grilled chicken and potatoes, and a blow job shot. Just make sure not to bring any straight men with you, the most likely won't enjoy being groped and getting lap dances from the waitresses. They also have a queen that makes balloon strap ons, whips, hand cuffs, pretty much and body part and dirty thing you can think of. If you don't mind having your chest grabbed or getting lap dances, than you'll have the best night of your life here!

We took a bachelorette party there and they say there is a show. The show is pretty much 3 waiters each sing one song. It was about a 15 minute show if that. So, if you are looking to just get served by drag queens and have a 15 minute show it's perfect, otherwise it's nothing special!!

I expected the workers to be bitchy, but for the most part, I was pleasantly surprised. The gal who took my reservation, the hostess and our waitress were great. Very pleasant and friendly. Our waitress was fantastic, they really do earn their money. The only thing is that the bus boys were not very nice and when we asked for plates to eat our appetizers, he ignored us. The food wasn't the best but you don't go there for their gourmet food. I would definetely go there again to celebrate a bachelorette or a girl's birthday. I would not suggest men go, unless they like getting teased by other men!

This is a fantastic place. The shows are incredibly entertaining, the food is awesome. Not even terribly expensive, especially for a place in new york city. But be warned that on weekends there's a $7 cover charge, PER PERSON. Some waitresses are better than others, but its always fun.

This place was a huge disappointment. The waiter took away all appetizers when the entrees came. And you know what the problem was? We haven't even touched them yet! The food was disgusting. Veggie lasagna was nasty, and the chicken fettucine was disgusting and undercooked. The performers were not entertaining at all. They didn't even try. When the bill came, they had charged us for drinks we ordered but we didn't even get them!! The drinks NEVER came to our table. On top of that, they charged us for the appetizers we haven't even touched because the clueless waiter took them away. Bill was about $100! I'd rather go to a high-end restaurant. A total waste of money and time. Don't bother! They should close the place down!

We were there over 6 months ago and I just realized I can write a review now. It was really great. I ran an outing for 50 ladies and it was a smash. The entertainment was fantastic, food was great, the price was right. (we went for sunday brunch). Everyone had a great time. Because of this we tried Lucky Chengs for a change. Chengs was beyond horrible. People go to Lips, if you must go back again to Lips. Don't try to do something different you will be sorry. LIPS IS THE BEST. We will go there in the fall again, again and again.

I went To Lips for my 23rd Birthday it was so much FUN. All the girls were so Friendly and Cheeky. The Food was excellent but, a small portion. The drinks were great. I went for the 9:00 o'clock show, which I highly recommend. The Show is great, they make you a part of it. Just The Best Experience. I give it a 9 out of 10 because my bill came up to $300 for 5 people( a bit more than I expected).\r\n\r\n\r\nWith all that said, I will be returning Next Week

Went there this past Saturday for a Bachelorette Party and it was so much fun! Went with a group of 12 girls and we had a great time. The show was entertaining but be ready to be put on the spot and they may use you as part of the show. The food was good although one member of our party did not get her food until half an hour after the rest of us did. We also got a male stripper which did his thing right in the middle of the restaurant! we paid extra for him and he only performed for about 10-15 minutes. NOt sure if the extra money was worth it for the amount of time but he put on a good show. All in all a really fun time!!

Lips is a great place to have a fun evening in NYC. My friends and I usually go there every time we are in the city. The staff is very friendly, the food is very good, and so is the service. I would highly recommend going there for a fun experience!

I go to Lips several times a month. Their Sunday brunch is amongst the most reasonable in the city, plus you get an outrageously funny show, the wit of Kenny Dash and those FABulous waitresses/songbirds! At any given time, the food is good - the best for any themed restaurant I've visited, the drinks and wines are reasonably priced. If you're going (and I recommend you go) please remember... its for fun - walk in with a smile!

I was walking in the Greenwich Village when I saw a crowd standing outside smoking. I asked them what kind of place it was and was told it was a drag bar. Never been to a drag bar in my life, I went in with no expectation and no knowledge of what kinda place it was. It turned out to be one of the most fun places I've been to in NY. Drinks were good, people were friendly, the show was absolutely hilarious!!! It's a MUST SEE in NY. I have nothing bad to say about the bar.

Although a bit pricey, for an occasional splurge and entertainment-fest, check this place out. Even the most unassuming of patrons will find Lips enjoyable, due in large part to the wonderful staff, who consist mostly of unpretentious, every-bit-the-welcome-wagon, (dare I say gorgeous) Queens! The food was good, too.

I had a really fun time at Lips the other night. The entertainers were so nice and talented. I recommend going here at least once. The food and drinks were very pricy.

I recently joined a group of friends for dinner at LIPS. We had one of the best nights out we've had in a long time. The food was great and the drag queens were even greater. I'm definitely going to make this a restaraunt to return to soon.

Editorial from

Perhaps this is not the greatest place to bring Mom and Dad when they're visiting from Kentucky. Then again, perhaps it is---it all depends on your perspective. If they enjoy moderately priced Continental cuisine served by over-the-top…
