 Ever wondered how exotic it would be being lost in the middle of a jungle with hundreds of sexy bears, nearly naked? Brisbears will make your dreams come true. One of the busiest evenings of the year, The Underbear Party is a mandatory underwear (and shoes) only themed party. A great evening for you to let your hair down, and enjoy the drinks, music and lots and lots of bears in an underwear. This jungle party promises a wild, rough and adventurous experience that’ll have you growling.

Note: Cloak room available, compulsory underwear only dress code.

 Hungover from previous night? The jungle witch doctor has a cure for you!!

Jump into a lovely pool full of bears and let yourself wet. You can swim, float or just hold onto a fellow bear to save yourself from sinking. The pool party is not only great for your recovery from previous night, but also a good opportunity to mingle with some hot bears in their swimmers if you’ve missed the underbear.
