As the name implies, the Bear’s Den is Paris’s premier address for the cross section of the gay community known as bears. A bit older, hairier, and stockier, you won’t find these guys hanging out in the trendier, more refined bars. This lot carved out their niche on the fringe of the Marais on the lively Rue des Lombards where they fill the terrace and spill onto the street every night of the week, beers in hand.  Welcoming and friendly, if just a bit imposing, the crowd splits time between the ground floor and the dance floor in the cellar. Evening apéros featuring different cuisine, from Nordic munchies to Spanish-style tapas, and a Sunday Tea Party until 9pm are on the agenda every week as well as a funk and disco soirée the last Saturday of each month. It’s the only place to be for otters, cubs, and any other hair-appreciating gay male in Paris.

Bears, wolves and men who love hairy men also gather at the nearby Wolf.
