Sitting in an enviable location right in the heart of Bournemouth’s stylish Triangle district, DYMK, or Does Your Mother Know? is a modern and stylish gay bar and club open from 4pm every day till late.
The bar is well stocked with premium drinks served by expert staff always keen to run through their favourite choices with you including DYMK’s notorious, over-decorated and oversized sharing cocktails.
Dripping with detail
The venue’s décor is ornate and classy, with opulent granite marble bar tempting you to take a closer look. You’re welcome to pull up a well-matched chair at the bar, sink into a flirty sofa or grab some fresh air on the heated smoking terrace – take a pew wherever you’re comfy.
When evening descends, DYMK transforms into a vibrant nightspot with DJs encouraging you to spill out of your cosy corner and throw your best shapes on the dance floor.
If you enjoy a night out, there’s plenty of big nights lined up at DYMK to grab your attention. If you’re into your show tunes, popular act Lea Martin belts out big ones from the West End and Broadway from 5pm on the last Sunday of every month.
Karaoke fans should pop down on a Monday or Wednesday for a full night of sing-along fun. If you’d rather not inflict your vocal talents on the gathering crowds, come here on a “Fierce Thursday” with your game face on for a full-on lip-sync battle. Fans of more current music will enjoy DYMK’s club nights every Friday and Saturday, while Thursday is the ideal night to test your music mettle with its popular jukebox quiz night.
If a drinks deal is more likely to whet your appetite, why not toast the start of the weekend with 241 cocktails from 4pm until close every Friday. If you’re not a fan of cocktails, take advantage of “Fizzy Friday’s” £12 bottles of Prosecco deal between 4pm to 10pm.
If you’re after some traditional cabaret, stretch out your weekend with DYMK’s Sunday night entertainment. The events programme includes show tunes, tributes, drag acts and entertainers ready to relieve the last few drops of fun out of your free time before the work clothes and “office face” are back on for another week.
