Low key relaxed atmosphere with live jazz jam by master musicians. All musicians and singers encouraged to perform. Worth a visit if you love jazz; 1st Saturday of the month. Pure jazz ecstasy!

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.
