Booked Out!: Courtney Act due to perform at Out! Liverpool on 28 July.

Bitchy retorts and sultry one-liners are guaranteed to form an essential part of the drag team’s repertoire. However, the aim is to create a fun attitude-free evening for patrons.

‘I want it to be a gay McCooley’s or Wetherspoons, somewhere where it isn’t super pressured’, the club’s general manager, Ryan Fanthorpe, told the Liverpool Echo.

‘It will be a place with no attitude and everyone can go in and have fun and watch drag queens without tension.’

The paper reported that the nightclub was described as a venue ‘thrown up from Katy Perry’s California Gurls video’.

In addition to it very colorful and playful decor, the club boasts a mosaic-mirror lined bar and rainbow strewn wall and piano.

Favourite catchphrases from RuPaul’s Drag Race adorn the walls in graffiti script. One reads ‘SHANTAY YOU STAY’, while another says ‘COVERGIRL’.

The centrepiece is the club’s showroom, a sizeable stage area and audience space from which drag acts will perform.

Out! opened its doors three weeks ago and promises lots more to come.

As RuPaul herself might say: ‘The time has come for you to lip-sync for your life’, so OUT! ‘You better work’.
