If you want something different then try this place out. Once you go there you will go again. The drinks are not your usual everyday labels. The only problem is that at midnight the magic ends.

There is no space to park right outside of The Bear Club, however there is lots of space at the parking lot next to the train station, as well as the Mall's car park - each are max. 2 min walk from the club.
