Las Vegas is opening what owners claim will be the United States’ first bar and gaming venue staffed solely by drag queens tomorrow (5 May).

Glamour will be taking centre stage as the bar Drink & Drag opens in the Nevada gambling capital employing over 24 full-time drag artistes.

It is set to become the largest employer of drag queens in the US.

The 22,000-square-foot venue is the brainchild of leading US nightclub Krave.

It will feature 12 bowling lanes, billiards and a 100-inch projector HD console lit by jewel-encrusted chandeliers.

Guests will be served VIP style while bowling, shooting pool or enjoying multiplayer action on Playstation 3s.

And the owners promise cutting edge lighting and automated video sequences to accent the eclectic round-the-clock performances.

Tyler Caiden, general manager of Drink & Drag said: ‘We are incredibly proud to share our vision of Drink & Drag with the public. After witnessing the recent mainstream popularity in Middle America of drag-focused TV shows, like RuPaul’s Drag Race and Drag U, we decided it was the right time to offer that real-life experience.’

The bar will open on the second level of the Neonpolis shopping centre at 450 Fremont Street, Las Vegas.
