BN Bear-Necessity (at Panama Club)

100% love it
Bi-monthly-ish dance den for bears
Big, hairy and "attitude-free" party for dancing bears, featuring international DJs and no darkrooms for an optimal relaxed atmosphere. Started early 2008. Scheduled club events vary in regularity but happen more or less every eight weeks, often overlapping with King's Day, Gay Pride and Oktoberfest. The club has gone further afield, to London, Antwerp, Cologne, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris and Tel Aviv. In 2014 BN moved from Odeon to Hotel Arena ('s-Gravesandestraat 51), and in 2015 to Air in the Amstel.
