Need a bit of Drag in your life? Check out these drag brunches coming soon

Stilettos at the ready! Haus of W.I.G. and Absolut are hosting a slew of drag brunches in the coming months.

IF THERE’S ONE thing we love around here, it’s a good brunch. With the days getting longer and the weather picking up, a spring has firmly been placed in our step and what better way to celebrate than to throw on a comfy pair of sky-high stilettos and celebrate in style with an unforgettable drag brunch. 

Haus of W.I.G., Dublin’s newest and naughtiest Drag Haus, are hosting a slew of drag brunches across the country in partnership with Absolut and believe us, you don’t want to miss them:

Leading Drag Queens Naomi Diamond, Shaqira Knightly and Donna Fella certainly know how to put on a show, getting the audience up off their seats is second nature to them, it’s actually getting them to sit down and taste the delicious food and cocktails on offer where the issues arise!

These talented Queens have brought their jaw-dropping talents to venues across the country for the last four years, and even hosted Ireland’s first virtual drag ball during the pandemic.

With each brunch you’ll be treated to a jam-packed afternoon of fabulous drag performances, games, challenges, delicious Absolut cocktails and plenty of prizes to be won.
