Last Friday night, legendary Brooklyn nightclub 3 Dollar Bill hosted a sold-out “White Lotus” themed dance party. The raucous evening was hosted by Shuga Cain from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” It featured performances by Thorgy Thor, Alexis Michelle, Olivia Lux, Marti Cummings, Thee Suburbia, and Myster E Mel Kiki.

For an added touch, guests were handed fresh towels as they arrived. DJ Lief played the tunes while dancers dressed as characters from the hit HBO show strut their stuff on the dancefloor and catwalk. There was a costume contest, of course. Many came as Jennifer Coolidge’s now iconic character Tanya. (They’re all winners in our book!) A few channeled their girl boss energy as lipstick lesbian Valentina, there was a crochet-clad, bucket hat-wearing Portia, one very literal interpretation of the “White Lotus” theme, and a few characters from Season One sprinkled into the mix.

Here are some of the best moments from the evening:
