The New York–based Lips, which opened a location on Buford Highway in 2013, dazzles with over-the-top costumes, glittery decor, divas, and dirty jokes. Sip tropical purple drinks over a full dinner while divorcees celebrate onstage along with the bachelorettes. Then dance in the aisles as several of the performers sing (yes, some actually sing rather than lip-sync) the requisite Whitney Houston.Warning: If you sit up front, you will probably be the target of sharp-witted MC Mr. Charlie Brown. On Sundays, you can even attend a gospel brunch. Bring cash—you’ll want to tip. 2011 Buford Highway, 404-315-7711, atldragshow.com
