Celebrate Bear Culture during Mardi Gras.
Sydney’s pop-up Bear Bar is back bigger than ever to celebrate 40 years of Mardi Gras.
Located on the ground floor of the Burdekin Hotel, at the start of Oxford Street, doors swing open on February 23rd for another action packed 9 days of fun events.
Showcasing the cream of the international bear scene, this year’s entertainment line-up includes comedian Dean Arcuri from Melbourne, US DJ Corey Craig from NYC and Sydney’s Colin Gaff who has headlined at bear parties across the globe including the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Party.
As well as the pub style nights, there will be art showcasing local bear artists and some special events geared to visitors to Sydney, including an Australian wine tasting run by United Cellars and a walking tour exploring Sydney’s secret gay history.
Spread over two levels of the Burdekin Hotel, Bear Bar will be the focal point of the Australian Bear Community during the Mardi Gras celebrations.
Festivities wrap up with a massive Mardi Gars Parade Party on March 3rd, overlooking Oxford Street with amazing views of the parade.
