D’Arcy Drollinger’s six-year-old drag club nearly flatlined during COVID, but a 12-hour telethon-style fundraiser defibrillated it to the tune of $268,000, and Drollinger confirms that the Oasis is ready to reopen in earnest on June 26 with a Pride party starring most of San Francisco’s drag royalty. Sporting a fresh mural of Sylvester, the Queen of Disco, this club with two rooms, a proper proscenium stage, and a separate rooftop bar has never ceded its title as the pre-eminent venue for all kinds of drag, from realness to bawdiness to the avant-garde. Humbly offer your performer (of any gender identity) a couple of dollars and hope their nails don’t scratch you as they snatch it.
