Bristol Bear Bar is the only bespoke Bear Bar in the UK. A great range of music and the atmosphere created by the friendly and unique clientele attracts people from across the whole of the south of the country.  Open Tuesday to Thursday 7:30-11:30 pm, Friday and Saturday 7pm-2am, Sunday 3-11:30pm.


Bristol Bear Fiesta (BBF) is a gay event weekend that has been held every summer since 2003 in Bristol’s Gay Village. Since 2007 the BBF team have brought you a winter event too, Southern HiBearnation (SHB)

BBF and SHB are held in association with The Bristol Bear Bar (known locally as The BBB and ‘The home of the bears’) which is at the heart of the Gay Village, at the crossroads where West Street meets Old Market Street and currently still the UK’s only bespoke bear bar

The BBB owner, Steve, and his team run an attitude-free, friendly and busy bar that has regularly been awarded ‘Best Bar’ in the annual ShoutOut LGBT awards.

Together we bring you a weekend of relaxation, music and fun primarily aimed at the hairy beary gay community, their admirers and friends, an easy-going event where everyone is welcome to join us for drinks, laughs and great nights out!

In 2015 and 2017 ‘Bristol Bear Fiesta and Southern HiBearnation’ won ‘Best Men’s Event’ in the ShoutOut Awards
