Join us for Arcade Parade, a weekend of disco drag, cocktail queens and outrageous jellies to round off Pride month, kicking off on Friday 1 July.
Bestley brings her disco energy straight from Mighty Hoopla to the Arcade decks as the headline act for Friday, Josh Quinton heads up the line-up on Saturday 2 July, and Sunday 3 July sees the launch of Arcade’s first ever bottomless Lunch Party.
In honour of Pride, the first in the series will be a disco-themed party hosted by Mercedes Bends, where for £45 you can enjoy a menu of Arcade signature dishes (view the full menu) and a choice of bottomless mimosas, prosecco, beer or wine alongside live performances from the Disco Freaks, Tomara Thomas, Portia de Fosse and Karla Bear.
Across the weekend, guests will have the option to add a £1 dontation to their bill for Stonewall, an organisation fighting for the freedom and equity of the LGBTQI+ community. Arcade will match every donation made.
Soho parade-goers can pick up journey fuel en route at Arcade’s hot food Pick Up, stocked up with everything from smash burgers to barbecue butter chicken wings and strawberry trifle. Swing by between 12pm-5pm to use us as your unofficial Parade Drive (or walk) Thru.
Featuring disco cocktails named after RuPaul’s catchphrases, Arcade’s Bar Queen menu will run throughout the Pride festivities. Look out for the C. U. N. T. (Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve & Talent) and How’s Your Head? cocktails to really get things started.
