The End Of Bed


Club Bed is gone. The two-story dance club was gutted by fire at around 8:40 this evening. Severe lost is expected and the cause of the fire is still under investigation. No casualties were reported since the gay club usually opens at around midnight. This sudden turn of events will change the entire gayscape of Malate-Orosa in the weeks to come.

Sad. The ironic thing is I actually am acquainted with the owner and the designers of Bed, professionally of course. But never actually went there to party, only to observe construction and assess designs.

soltero said...

paci said...

some things just never last.

Boying Opaw said...

isa lang ang pumasok sa isip ko:


uyyy, na-eexcite na sila sa bagong BED?

Kane said...


Talagang the END? Ikaw talaga. Where will all the bad boys play?


~Carrie~ said...

Na-shock ako. Pero closed until further notice naman ang Bed, not closed down :)

Mu[g]en said...


Further notice, yes. But for how long it is closed, nobody knows.


I came from the school of sensationalism. If I wrote, "BED, Gutted by fire." Walang impact. Hehehe.

The real bad boys don't go to Malate. WE know where they are. :P


Rising from the ashes. Nice concept! Pero bago muna yun, dapat magbukas yung mga bar sa paligid ng BED.

Mu[g]en said...


When parties end before 2 in the morning. You have to worry, what seems to be the problem...


I should know, BED was my comfort zone when the ex was too much to bear.


Your exploration seems to be in full swing ah! Nauunahan mo na ako. Heheh.

Mu[g]en said...


Punta tayo sa Club Bath. Mas maganda dun. Hahaha


Until they release an official statement, we would know what really happened to BED. Sad indeed.


I feel your lost.


Lesson learned: Be bold enough to explore on your own. There are other bars you could explore. Name it, O, Che'Lu, Palawan.

Ex Jason said...

This is sad. Di ako pumasok sa bed nung pumunta akong malate kasi parang di pa right time. lol. nag chelu lang ako at crobar. sana pala pumasok nako nun.

Mu[g]en said...

Ex Jason:

They said it will be temporarily closed. Lets hope it will. Pero looking at the damage last night, matatagalan talaga before it opens again.

Welcome to Mugenspace. =)

I know every thing has an end but I didn't expect it to be this soon. Mabibilang sa daliri ng kamay yung dami ng punta ko dun but this place definitely made me realized a lot of things so the memories will be cherished.

Guyrony said...

The Bad Boys know where the party's at.

Don't we know where the party's at? ;)

Désolé Boy said...

i heard this from Great...
too bad..di pa nga ako nakakapunta eh...

anyway, sorry for all you guys na pansamantalang mawawalan ng "tahanan"

sabi nga sa Queer as Folk: the thumpa thumpa will continue no matter what!

Let's see if it could be resurrected. But like you, the first time I saw people leaving at 2 in the morning on a Saturday night, I knew something was wrong,

very wrong.


Ewan ko sa iyo. Goodboy ako. Hehehe.

Mu[g]en said...

Desole Boy:

Naalala ko tuloy nung first time ni-renovate yung BED. I temporarily moved at Government. Para akong outsider dun.


Nakakashock talaga. Absorb ko lang yung shock, then I'd post my eulogy for that club.

lee said...

buti na lang i had the opportunity to go there last month. tsk tsk

Bed burnt.

A sign of the (end)times.

Whoever said people leaving at 2am on a saturday night is certainly mistaken. That's when the people start to come in. People lately have been coming in later instead.

Admittedly - the gay crowd is torn by a lot of factors - there's the internet, massage parlors, bathhouses. Hooking up has never been so easy - i'd understand if going out to a bar falls to the bottom of the to-do list on a Saturday night.

As there's a market who love dance music and celebrating pride - BED or probably another incarnation will go on.

I agree with anonymous person above-the density of the gay crowd only increases around 1:30am-2:00am; the PLU now go out much later than before; Usually if they step out, it's because they have to buy cigarettes or get friends outside.

Sure it's closed for the meantime, but I bet my left nut and yours it will reopen soon.

BED has been a haven for PLUs for such a long time; a place where fond memories have been made; friendships that have been forged; and really served as a place to just go to if you wanted to have fun. Shame something so tragic like this happened, but no frets, as the website said-there's an investigation going on and things will be resolved in no time.

Natuwa ako kina Anonymous.

Kasi si anon agreeing with anon above.

(note: i'm not making fun of the comments, natuwa lang ako sa coincidence)

Carabrant said...

Nung una, nilindol ang Gslera. Ngayon, nasunog ang Bed. Hahaha! :P

Hindi man lang ako nakapunta sa club na 'to.

Please check out Bed's new official statement at so you can be properly informed and all rumours can be laid to rest. We, the management of Bed, are just as saddened as you are by this tragic and sudden loss. Our community is less bright because our beacon was suddenly taken away from us. Lose no hope. There will be better times. We promise. For now, keep on dancing and keep the spirit of Bed alive. Go to Bed's facebook group page and post your favorite story or picture from Bed. We love you all and thank you for the amazing support for the past 7 years. We wouldn't be here without you.

Geez, this is bad. Good thing no one got hurt. I hope Bed will get through this (so is the Gay community).
