URGE Male Out: Jan/Feb and Get It On! Bear NZ Week

Happy New Year!
I hope you had fun no matter where you brought in the New Year. If you were at URGE – congrats you survived our biggest night EVER!
Christmas and New Year proved to be a big time for us at the bar with lots of highlights and great crowds. Also good to see so many hot men at the Undies Party on January 2!
There will be no let up in the next six weeks or so – with three Underwear Parties, a Big Gay Out, our third Bear New Zealand week and one of America’s top DJs coming to 490 Karangahape Road. Phew!

Don’t forget URGE is now open every Sunday during summer from 3pm-7pm. These have proved to be really popular so far and a great way to chill out with mates while enjoying some nibbles and drink specials. Also James Leuii is continuing his ‘Man Friday’ nights every Friday at the bar.
We also have some special deals thanks to our friends at Mondo Travel (see below)
