Went yesterday to the LIBERTINES, Sunday afternoon session. It was great, busy, a bunch of lovely people as usual. Its my favourite event at Dare

A couple of things that would improve it would be a change of music so that it was more chilled, sunday afternoon kind of music.

No strobing lights, more soft atmospheric lights

Move the benches by the dance floor so that it creates a lovely sitting area where people can socialise.

This is a gay club snd owners is just money grabbers

Overcharging people is greed and stupid act

Every time you came in is just few couple and at list 50 singles old guys who following you all night long

Price to go in is way to expansive and if you are gay that place you need to be

We attended the sauvage event climax event here last night.

The staff are super friendly, the bar is well stocked and it has a large dancefloor... but to be honest it's tricky to find many more positives. It was super quiet, very little atmosphere and pretty cold everywhere.

We had a great night, but it wasn't down to the venue and it was too cold to think about taking any clothes off!

Not for us

We attended liberation party, which was also our very first time at the club. The staff were friendly and gave us a good tour of the club. The club has everything you would need to have a good night. We met some lovely people and although we didn't get to play we would definitely be returning.

We went to this club last night, it wasn’t what we expected. Multiple playrooms kitted out for role play and a dance floor so if thats your thing this place is for you! Sadly it didn’t quite have the vibe that we were looking for as the male to couple ratio was a little high for our liking, but don’t let that put you off as the team who runs it are incredibly friendly! Great to see free condoms available to all…enjoy fabers.

We both enjoyed visiting the club last night, we like to try different clubs and we haven't been to any before in Bristol.

We found the club clean, well organised, friendly and the staff very helpful.

Love Apple xxxxx

Went a couple of weeks ago to a video shoot, which was on my bucket list. Made to feel very welcome. No pressure and very liberating. Definitely go again.

We had a great time at Dare2 LIBERATION Truthordare Party in Bristol on 22.07. Our first visit to the venue. Tight security which is good. Inside somewhat reminiscent of a student union. Very friendly people, great mix. We chatted lots in the outside smoking area, then locked ourselves in a room for several hours with a very hot filthy couple and played. Really fun evening and made new friends. Can get busy upstairs, no bad thing ;o)

We were there last Sunday (22nd), hosts great, facilities very exciting! We weren’t expecting much to happen with it being the afternoon and we left a bit early so not sure if any fun was had in the end but it was a lovely social and really enjoyed meeting everyone. Will come back and play in future. If you saw us there please say hello! L&A

This club cannot become a true swinger club .. may be good for dance and music events.. tried 5 - 6 times till date and always very quite and very loud music.. they do not advertise swinger nights enough like other clubs thus very less participation

Brilliant staff (even if owner can be a little intimidating), great people for both the last no strings and deviant desires. 1st one went in full nude and it felt absolutely liberating dancing around naked. And everyone was so positive and happy I have had great time on both occasions. Will certainly keep coming back

This is a very diverse venue. Liberation nights are VERY hit and miss - sometimes it doesn’t really know what it is and is a little run down. No Strings and Crossbreed (especially) are awesome though. The club completely changes and with amazing sound decks and dance area, kinksters full the venue with great vibes and eclectic dress. It gets very busy. There are some playrooms upstairs and a dungeon downstairs, which we spent nearly 3 filthy hours in on 19th March. Owners work hard and staff (particularly Crossbreed) marshalls are amazing x

We attended a liberation party night on Friday. The ratio of men to women/couples was ridiculous. If it was called a greedy girl night I could understand. Nothing against the club owners. It’s all about the event organisers liberation. He even tried to say there was only 5 single men in there what a joke. He definitely can’t count but I bet he’s was counting the money he made off the 30 Single men in there avoid Liberation party’s

Haven’t attended this club yet but its local for me, and i would like to.

Communication seems good through whatsapp so maybe theres been effort to improve that since a lot of older reviews have said it was awful.

I did ask to book in for tonights party, however i’ve been put off by the FIFTY QUID entry fee for single guys ?? and the fact they’re expecting covid passports. “No QR code, no entry, no refund”

This is not law for venues in England and never has been.

Lovely time at deviant desires.

Well regulated but not obviously so.

Fabulous outdoor area, very reasonably priced drinks and lovely staff.

Didn't really use any rooms but plenty there and I enjoyed the dungeon.

Only small complaint would be loud music......

What a fantastic night at deviant desires last night. The place was buzzing lots of people in fancy dress and fet wear fun and games on the roof terrace and a great night had by all. The venue is constantly adding improvements the new roof terrace looks fantastic especially with the addition of the circus tent roof making it usable in all weather's
