Bear Bar is Sydney’s small gay bar in the heart of Oxford Street. Open every Friday and Saturday from 5pm, ’til late underneath the Burdekin Hotel for Bears and their friends. Everyone is welcome, entry at the rear on Liverpool Street. During the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis we will be operating on reduced hours and at reduced capacity in line with NSW Government Health restrictions.


For the first two hours after opening we have $5 food and drink specials including delicious Classic Pizzas, local tap beers, house spirits, house wine and chunky potato wedges.


When the restrictions are eased...

Community is at the heart of Bear Bar so we’ll be presenting a packed program of free events and community activities and fundraisers as we come out of hibernation later this year. Plus we’ll be showcasing some of the best LGBTI entertainment and late night DJs from Sydney and around the world.
