A bottomless drag brunch in Leeds has been named as one of the very best in Britain, according to research commissioned by women’s fast-fashion retailer Nasty Gal.
Yard and Coop are already up there in our esteem as one of the best spots in the city for a fried chicken fix, but now there’s another reason to add it to your list of must-visits in the city.
Their Leeds Coop Queen Drag Brunch, which has recently returned featuring legendary queen Uma Daz alongside newbie Mystique, has just been ranked third behind two popular drag brunches in Manchester.
Whilst it didn’t quite take the top spot it still ranked very highly above numerous events in London, Brighton, and elsewhere – with the north clearly coming out on top overall.
Featuring fun games like RuPaul Bingo alongside some proper disco dancing, the bottomless brunch menu includes 90 minutes of unlimited drinks and features a whole host of Yard and Coop’s legendary chicken for just £30.
Think fried chicken-loaded pancakes, and a waffle burger loaded with their signature buttermilk chicken, plus bacon, egg, adobo mayo and loaded tatties on the side.
For veggies, meanwhile, there are some tasty veggie tacos piled high with smashed avocado, scrambled egg, chopped chives, cherry tomatoes and sriracha garlic hot sauce – plus more loaded tatties on the side.
With two sessions taking place from 2 – 4pm and 5 – 7 pm at their Merrion Street site, expect plenty of free-flowing fizz and
Nasty Gal says: “At £30 per person for 90 minutes of magical lip-syncs and guaranteed gags, the Coop Queen Drag Brunch is a shining example of what the north has to offer the drag scene and places Leeds firmly on the drag brunch map.”
