The Palace Bar & Restaurant

1200 Ocean Drive Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-531-7234

Location Description:

Stop by the Palace for a very South Beach experience. The place puts on drag shows every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and offers a Sunday "Brunchic." For the $30 brunch, guests get unlimited mimosas and a menu that changes weekly, rotating steak, salmon, pancakes, and other brunch fare. Also of note is the Palace burger ($10.95), featuring a turkey patty topped with chipotle aioli and served with fries or salad. The Palace also proffers assorted salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Food here is generally of higher quality and lower cost than at other eateries on Ocean Drive. The restaurant is split into two bars: one indoor and designed for nighttime use, and the other semi-outdoors. There is also a patio laid out with dining tables. Entertaining drag queens make the service friendly. Call ahead for the drag show during Sunday brunch.
