Miss Misfits Mardi Gras Party
Drag queens, fabulous tracks and glitter galore.

in partnership with
Redfern's neighbourhood retro-style bar, Misfits, is appropriately kicking off Sydney's Mardi Gras Parade weekend with a big blowout. The Miss Misfits Mardi Gras Party, hosted by April Fools, is returning for its second year on Friday, February 28, from 7pm and going until the wee hours — so put on your dancing shoes, with drag performances, gay party anthems, and plenty of glitter.
They're putting on an in-house glitter station so you can sparkle too, plus there'll be be three bedazzled cocktails to choose from to get your night started. There's the cheekily dubbed Purple Rain, the regal Kweens Cup and soulful Impersonating Beyoncé Is Not Your Destiny, Child — all fabulously dressed. There will also be food specials and giveaways, with prizes like free oysters and sparkling vino, cocktails, a bottle of bubbly and a $50 bar voucher. Should you win the grand prize, you'll nab a $500 dinner for you and nine of your nearest and dearest.
Once Saturday rolls around, you'll need to recover before the parade starts. So, head back to the bar for its monthly Lunch Club at midday, which you can book here. Food will cost you $45 and your hair-of-the-dog option comes in the form of bottomless glitter prosecco — yep, that's a thing — for an additional $20, so you can get over your hangover and start the pre-game for the rest of the Mardi Gras shenanigans to come.
