Last night, we went to Dracula’s. Definitely worth the hype, cost, and time to book in advance, this show and dinner package was amazing. The current show is Beasts of Burlesque, featuring the weird wonders of circus life and freak shows. The costumes, makeup, comedy, and dancing are excellent.

The show takes place in two one-hour sections after a three course dinner. After a set entrée and choice of six mains, the highlight is, naturally, dessert: Death by Chocolate. There is constant table service and a great cocktail menu, with all of the waiting and bar staff also dressed up as Gothic freaks. The in-house trio played clever jazz arrangements of a whole range of music, and also joined the show later on. There was plenty of audience participation, and I’m just glad that we were sitting one table back from the centre catwalk, as that’s where most of the audience ‘victims’ were selected from. Hilarious!

If we’re back on the Gold Coast again, or in Melbourne, this is something we’d definitely go back to and also recommend to family and friends. Plan to make a whole night of it; this is 5+ hours of outstanding entertainment.
