Never let it be said that XXL doesn’t serve up mammoth party themes and over the next six weeks you’ve got an 18th birthday party, OctoBEARfest, Rugby and Halloween to look forward to, you lucky bunch.
Saturday 22 September
It’s that time again next weekend when the hot guys of XXL are encouraged to flaunt their hairy shoulders in a grubby vest and show off their thighs in ripped denim shorts. Yes, Construction is back in town and its main mission is to build a cracking party for you all to groove in. Resident DJs Paul Morrell and Alex Logan are back in the Main Room while over in the Fur Lounge usual suspects David Robson and Joe Egg turn those wheels of steel for one of the best men-only crowds in the capital.
XXL’s 18th Birthday – Bearly Legal
Saturday 29 September
The UK’s biggest bear and bloke club comes of age at the end of the month when XXL celebrates its 18th birthday with a huge party at Pulse. Expect cabaret shows, special guest DJ Moto Blanco (as well as all the star residents) and one of the biggest XXL crowds of the year.
Saturday 6 October
If you ever needed an excuse to sink pint after pint of beer then XXL’s annual OctoBEARfest is back in town on the first week of next month, plus it’s the ideal occasion to wear your finest lederhosen too, ja? It’s also Bears ‘n’ Cubs night too, meaning it’s the perfect time to approach that younger hunk or older DILF you’ve had your eye on for months.
Saturday 13 October
Those rugger boys head to XXL fresh off the pitch on 13 October when one of XXL’s favourite themes, Rugby, scores a try back at Pulse. What’s more, as well as all those chunky rugby players in attendance, international DJ Italian stallion Pagano will be back behind the decks, and we all love a hefty dose of Pagano.
Saturday 20 October
OK, so your denim shorts have been worn, the lederhosen have been made use of – now it’s time to dig out that gorgeous plaid shirt you’ve been hiding away all summer, because Lumberjack arrives back in London next month. We love a big, handsome chopper and it turns out you guys do too because Lumberjack is one of XXL’s best-loved themes, plus with monthly resident Fat Tony back in the Main Room this looks set to be a party not to be missed.
Saturday 27 October
As darkness falls across the land and the midnight hour is close at hand… XXL hosts its mahoosive Halloween party at the end of October, with special guests Hoxton Whores tearing up the Main Room. All the usual residents will be in the house too, as will the club’s scariest bears.
