Given the rapid contraction of San Francisco venues over the past few years, when Oasis opened its doors on New Year’s Eve 2014, S.F.’s drag community whooped in unison. Owned by nightlife veterans Heklina and D’Arcy Drollinger, it swiftly established a seven-nights-a-week reputation for nurturing local talent and luring high-profile acts that might not have come to San Francisco otherwise — and the covers are affordable. And because the vaguely Moroccan-themed Oasis can morph from a cabaret to a dance club to a theater, its programming versatility is unmatched. From line-by-line drag remakes of classic TV episodes to original theatrical productions to inexplicably weird genderfuck performances, Oasis has singlehandedly redrawn the eyebrows of San Francisco’s LGBT culture.
