Five15, the Royal Oak coffee shop known for hosting the popular Drag Queen Bingo event series, is moving.

The quirky cafe specializes in kitschy gifts and caffeinated beverages, as well as their signature event series. It's grown so popular, they're in need of more space. They'll move the entire operation across the street to 600 S. Washington, where they'll expand on their already popular events, including 12 Drags of Christmas, Snow White and the Seven Drags, and Sunday brunch.



They'll also be able to add cocktails, a sorely missed competent for anyone being heckled by a hunty drag queen.

According to a press release, the move will also allow for more front row seating, larger shows, and new programming.



The space is adjacent to Pronto!, and the coffee shop will partner with the restaurant to bring guests "unique culinary items and speciality cocktails," according to a press release.

The first show in the new space is scheduled for Thursday, March 15 at 7 p.m., but a formal ribbon cutting ceremony is promised for spring.

“Five 15 is one of our major anchors here in downtown," Royal Oak's Downtown Manger Sean Kammer says. "Drag Queen Bingo is a huge attraction and brings people into Royal Oak from all over the region."
