IOWA'S BEST DRAG SHOWS

The home of Frisbee Jenkins & Myling Belle

Frisbee Jenkins (aka Sasha Belle) has been a part of the Studio 13 family for over a decade.  With more than 1,000 shows and multiple local and state titles, including Miss Gay Iowa, 8th place nationally at Miss Gay USofA and an appearance on season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race, she brings the highest level of experience, professionalism and fun to our shows every week. 

Myling Belle is our current Show Director, along with Frisbee, keeping our shows fresh, professional and fun! 

Some of our other show cast & regular performers include: Hazel Sanchez-Belle, Lil Kimmy Blaque, Chanelle Principle, Mindy Belle, Hazy Buchanan, Maya Ruins, Ronnie Belle, Chey Boi, Hollywood Hope, Doja Thee Kiki & so many more.

More new and upcoming performers start at Studio 13 than every other club in Iowa combined.  Every Wednesday is OPEN STAGE where anyone can perform! Join us to see the only 19 and up drag shows in Iowa every week plus the IC Kings the last Thursday of every month.

 
I.C. Kings - Taking a break but will return!

STUDIO 13 IS THE PROUD HOME OF THE I.C. KINGS

Since debuting in April 2009, the I.C. Kings have been promoting individuality, creativity, and shameless disregard for gender norms. Our cast of characters includes heartthrobs, class clowns, bros, mysterious foreigners, and everything in between. Headlining at Studio 13 since January of 2010, every I.C. Kings show is filled with variety. 
 

What to expect at one of our shows? Hit songs, swanky costumes, flashy dance moves, prop-laden skits, hearty laughs, big surprises, sexy reveals, and much more. The I.C. Kings shows provide a space for our community to join together for a carefree evening that is engaging, silly, and always fun.

Iowa's ONLY 19+ Nightclub

Studio 13 (previously known as the Alley Cat), has been the Corridor's favorite LGBTQIA+ nightclub for over two decades.  Located in a historical building in downtown Iowa City, S13 has become a foundation for the Iowa City LGBTQIA+  community as well as one of the most popular nightclubs in Iowa. We have been voted the best LGBTQIA+ hangout, best place to dance, best karaoke and more and are humbled by the amazing support of our community for over two decades. 

We work hard to be leaders and guide those in the LGBTQIA+ community leading by example.  We cannot control the actions of others but believe involvement and action are the best ways to bring about the change we all want and the best in everyone.  We all make mistakes and can be better people.  Get involved, be a mentor, lead by example.  Join us for monthly Pride meetings or PRIDE Potlucks.  We are always here for those who want to reach out and join us in making things better for all.

We are a place that welcomes everyone, from the college freshman who is just coming out, to the elder pillar of the community.  If you do not feel welcome or have an experience that is less than positive, we want to know and will do our best to address it.  We know we can't make everyone love us but we can be a place that, with the right attitude, everyone will have fun!

Sincerely, Webmaster - sthirteen.com
