Franky Bradley’s closes out summer season with burlesque performances, live shows


Franky Bradley’s is saying so-long to summer in style.

The restaurant and bar, located in Midtown Village, is hosting an array of burlesque performances and live shows, starting with ‘Stranger Thangs: A Drag & Burlesque Tribute to Stranger Things’ on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Known for its ground-breaking, over-the-top live entertainment and ensembles, Franky Bradley’s has long been a staple of Philly’s social scene. The restaurant dates back to 1933 when Frankie Bradley, a South Philadelphia native and former boxer, opened his first restaurant and helmed the establishment for over 50 years, garnering celebrity clientele such as Elizabeth Taylor, Dick Clark and Lucille Ball.


Since its inception, Franky Bradley’s has been a hotspot for celebrities, but the space was then converted into a nightclub and event space, favored by locals, tourists and the surrounding LGBTQIA-plus community. 

It’s nostalgic, it’s fun, it’s upbeat, and there’s burlesque. 

Philadelphians can join the fun with special upcoming performances, including:

  • Thursday, Sept. 1: Glamorama — A Luxurious Burlesque Experience
  • Friday, Sept. 2 – Saturday, Sept. 3: ROOTED: A One-Woman Show
  • Sunday, Sept. 11: Tolkien It Off: A Drag & Burlesque Tribute to Lord of the Rings
  • Sunday, Sept. 25: Safeword: An Indulgent BDSM Burlesque Experience
