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
The 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
...view morespectacular, 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
The 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
I reccomend LIPS to everyone. It is a night out you will never forget! Bravo Ladies. Thanks!

Not bad

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
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-

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
The queens are what really makes this place worth revisiting.

Time of my life!

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 drin...view morek 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!!! \rview less

Best Bithday Ever!!! All Hail The Queens

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
With all that said, I will be returning Next Week
