One of Poker Deluxe’s most popular bucks party venues in Melbourne, The Bull and Bear Tavern is the perfect bar for your best mates last swan song.

Located right in the heart of the CBD in Melbourne, tucked away just down Flinders lane, it’s a great spot to start the night and then kick-on at Crown Casino or another of our favourite hangouts; Centrefold Lounge strip club.

The best thing about the Bull and Bear tavern is that it’s suited to small and larger bucks parties, but without breaking the budget. Sure it’s not the penthouse cigar lounge at the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas, but the beauty of that is if you do get a little loud, spill a few drinks or dress the buck in ladies attire, you’re not going to get kicked to the curb.

With tasty finger food and cheap drinks, especially for city prices, it’s the perfect bucks party venue in the man cave; known as the Tavern bar.

You’ll pay NO venue hire and NO minimum bar spend, making it ideal for even the smallest of groups. You can fit up to four poker tables with topless dealers no problem at all or you can go with 1 or 2 tables and rotate players.

For example: The first group of guys play poker for the first hour, while the others play some pool, beer pong or just relax and have a chat. Then the groups swap for the 2nd hour. Then we get the top 4 or 5 players from each round (usually we try to keep the buck in) to playoff for the final hour and see who claims the trophy and ultimate bucks party bragging rights.

Your group will have exclusive use of the Basement function room for the duration of your event which features:
2 pool tables, jukebox & iPod dock, pinball machines, darts board, finger food & bistro dining, private bar.

We even provide a free beer pong table to keep the boys entertained once they’ve tried bluffing one too many times and finished with poker. You’ll have everything you need for an epic battle including the table, cups and balls, all you have to do is fill them with beer. Or better yet get your topless waitress to fill the cups!

Poker Deluxe holds literally 100’s of bucks parties here every year and boy do we have some stories to tell. But don’t worry, what happens on the bucks stays on the bucks!

So here are some great laughs from our bucks party ideas at the Bull and Bear Tavern:

• Chaz or Chad – one of our buck’s name was Chad and so his best man printed a bunch of pictures that only showed the hairline or nose of the person in the photo. Guests had to pick if the person in the photo was Chad (the buck) or Chaz Bono (Cher’s transgender child).

• Grandfather “Blue” – if you’ve ever seen the movie Old School with Frank the Tank played by Will Ferrell, then you should remember his 90 year old fraternity hopeful “old man Blue”. Well let’s just say Old Blue had never been so alive and eyes wide open as when Portia laid across his lap and gave him body shots.

• Fancy dress for the Buck – with too many to mention, we’ve seen every form of public degradation that costumes can provide a buck. From ballerinas to nurses, fairies to princesses and even a gorilla suit with a ball and chain. Fancy dress is always more fun for the guests than the man of honour.
