Vision of the party

Fetish is not a dark corner, fetish is identity!

The Gear and Fetish Party Gear'n'Dance (friends call it GND) is organized by the association „Puppy and Friends NRW e.V.“, an association for the puppy play and fetish community in NRW. Inspired by the pup play sauna event „Chill&Bark“ in the Metropol Sauna in Essen, the idea was born to bring together fetishes of all kinds - way beyond puppy play. As a framework, a party character with a great community spirit was developed, which is diverse and also open for specials. Fetish can be more than just sex with special or particular preferences. So the focus at GND is not on having fun in a sling, but on celebrating fetish life.

Especially the non-sexual, social part of the puppy community and the fetish lifestyle is lived and celebrated together at the Gear'n'Dance Party. Going out, socializing and partying in fetish gear is otherwise often only possible in special clubs belonging to the community or on occasions like a pride. Because not every bar or party in the Ruhr area and NRW regularly allows wearing fetish outfits. Regardless of gender, sexuality and identity, the Gear'n'Dance Party wants to be a melting pot of fetish life.

  Your Gear'n'Dance Team

A team of different characters for a diverse event

Connected in the Puppy and Friends NRW e.V., we organize this party for you - on a voluntary basis. Our common goal is that living out fetish doesn't have to be a question of money and dark corners. Behind such an event is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Our reward is when you as our guests experience an awesome party night. Around the core team there are many important helpers, who are indispensable in the preparation and in the execution.

  The party location

Ruhrpott Charme: The right place for the right party

The Eloria Bar und Lounge is located on the upper floor of the former Grusellabyrinth, which was known far beyond NRW. Today, the Eloria Erlebnisfabrik takes you into a fantastic world full of secrets. The event and leisure location with Escape Rooms, Battle and Adventure Games is the perfect place for a Gerfetisch event.

A mixture of industrial culture and cozy living room creates a fitting setting - not only for leather and latex clothing. Bar and lounge, airy terrace with a view, relaxing outdoor area and a large dance floor offer an extraordinary ambience.
