Tabu prides itself on celebrating all types of drag and performance. Our programming showcases an array of drag, so no matter what you’re into, you will always be entertained at Tabu. Into avant garde, over the top looks? Just check out HAUS every 3rd Friday for a club kid dance party like no other! Got a funny bone that needs a scratch? Get into Bitchfest every first Saturday hosted by Gaybrohood favorite, the hilarious Bev! Maybe you just want to watch some fierce queens turn it out? Well, then stop by The Get Down every fourth Sunday hosted by dancing diva Poochie and comedic genius, Paula Deen White. With shows six nights a week, you can always be entertained at Tabu.

Many of Philly’s favorite queens started here at Tabu and still call it home. If you’re interested in trying drag yourself, then throw on your best outfit and stop by Drag-A-Rama every Monday, Amateur Drag Attack hosted by Vanessa Sterling every fourth Friday, or Open HAUS every second Thursday. There’s room on the Tabu stage for every one. Tabu prides itself on believing that drag is an art form that can be celebrated and practiced by anyone regardless of gender identity.
