The Stud hosts a weekly ‘art and drag’ party that mixes the experienced More Family—Juanita More, VivvyAnne Forevermore, Glamamore, and others—with newcomers who add an irresistible enthusiasm and ‘Busted Queen’ aura to the performances. Audience members also participate, attending in drag. Open later than most of San Francisco’s bars, this is a party worth going to regularly.

Technically, this is not a drag show because the performers are transgender women, but the dining experience will leave your jaw on the floor. Not only are the ladies of AsiaSF gorgeous, they’re friendly to the point that they’ll feed you shots and then put your dance moves to shame.
