The Queens Cabaret Bar
Location: The Queens Cabaret Show is located in central Sairee, on the same walking street where you’ll find Zest Sairee, Flaming Hog BBQ, Cantina de Koh Tao and Porto Bello.
Opening Hours: 9pm – 12midnight
The Queens Cabaret Show is open for one performance daily and while doors open from 9pm to allow guests who arrive early to choose the best seats in the house, the show doesn’t normally get underway until an hour or so later, normally around 10pm.
As the name would suggest, The Queens Cabaret Show is a live performance by a troupe of ladyboy and transgender dancers. Ever heard of The Ladyboys of Bangkok show? Well, this is the Koh Tao version! Many of the performers have been with The Queens Cabaret since it opened in 2009. So throw all of your doubts, prejudices, and inhibitions aside, as this is a night full of fun that you won’t forget!
One thing is undeniable, the performers are all incredibly fit and flexible, and the routines are fast, fun, and come with a big old dose of drama as well as some great insertions of humour. The outfits are wonderfully creative and are all made in-house by the crew. There are various shows throughout the week, so even if you go a couple of times during your stay, the routine will be different. At the end of the show the team pose for photos and tips, and some audience members even get to be included in the grande finale!
Entrance to The Queens Cabaret Show is free of charge, however, you are expected to buy drinks once you are seated and these are charged at a slightly higher price than other Koh Tao bars to account for the live performance.
The Queens Cabaret Show is a regular stop on the Koh Tao Pub Crawl, so you can expect it to be particularly busy on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights.
