Hamburger Mary’s is a global quirky burger joint, located a few blocks behind the waterfront. The gay-popular bar & grill chain features drag shows by local queens, and often you can meet the stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race here.

The food is good but can be pricey, and the same goes for Mary’s cocktails. Hamburger Mary’s also hosts regular strip nights in which you can see several muscly hunks dance for your pleasure.

Reservations aren’t usually necessary unless you’re in a large group, but beware! Entry can sometimes be expensive if there’s a big show on.
