Paunchy, London’s filthiest cruise club for chunkier guys and bears, returns this weekend to a brand new, central London home.
For as long as can be remembered, the humble teddy bear has been the go-to half-arsed, this’ll-probably-be-enough Valentine’s Day gift that straight men have bought for their girlfriends, wives, mistresses, side-chicks, whatever; purchased from WH Smiths preferably no more than a day before. Well, gays, now you’re in luck, because for one night only, XXL will be serving you their very own range of Valentine Bears! Head down to Pulse this Saturday and get your mitts on one of these furry friends…
The App generation
No matter what we pretend we like (yoga, Whole Foods, academia, Bjork) when it comes down to it, what most of us really like, is apps. Depressing as this factoid is, we each spend over 3000 hours a week on apps. That is unconfirmed, we pulled that figure out of thin air. But it’s probably true.
XXL Goes Cruising
Normally, when you take a mirror-selfie, you get about 14 likes and a wee spring in your steps as you mince down Borough High Street. Well, from this Saturday at XXL, it could get you a whole lot more; you could win a 7 day cruise for two, on a ship full of bears!
Beguiling Art Cinema Piece Magnanimous Lands at XXL
Ever fancied clubbing AND culture? That should be QX’s tagline actually. “QX Magazine – Clubbing & Culture!” What?! Don’t look at us like that! We’re cultured. We once watched The Antiques Roadshow all the way through. If that’s not culture, THEN WHAT IS?
Dave Urania @ XXL
Oso. That’s Bear in Spanish. Why do you need to know that? Well, on 19th November, superstar DJ Dave Urania is jetting over from Madrid for a special set at XXL, bringing European party vibes to heat up the bear den.
XXL ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
XXL’s Sixteenth Birthday
Our favourite hairy beary clubbing leviathans XXL turn sixteen next Saturday! SIXTEEN. What were YOU doing sixteen years ago? Dancing to Wannabe in front of the mirror with a hairbrush probably.
XXL has got a blinding set of DJs on their books. We had a quick chat with HBIC (Head Bear In Charge) Mark Ames about the dudes who spin the discs regularly at London’s favourite bear cave.
We Meet Superstar DJ Paul Morrell!
Sultry of face and tatted of arm, Paul Morrell ’s one of the industry’s most promising talents, both behind the decks and in the studio. He’s taken his urgent, sun-chasing sound to some of the world’s most iconic venues, from Islington to Ibiza.
