It was Bear Night at XXL last Saturday! We know that’s a bit like, ‘is the Pope Catholic?’ or ‘do bears like Kylie?’, but it didn’t stop us having a SCREAM there. As soon as got in, we immediately lost ourselves in a boozy blur of furry pecs and disco beats. Our fave thing about the bearcave is that there’s something for every stage of the night. Sometimes you want some tops-off Balearic clubbing, other times a bit of a mince to some camp classics, or perhaps a little exploratory dabble in a dark room. Whatever you fancy, XXL’s got you covered and that’s why it’s been rammed every Saturday night for 16 years!
