This is a great bar - visited on a Friday night and whilst it was very busy, it didn’t feel cramped or tight for space. Despite how busy it was I never waiting long to be served at the bar - the lovely bar staff...More

A friendly gay bar in the heart of Amsterdam. It’s relatively small but not narrow enough to make it feel like a corridor. A small dance floor but that somehow fits everyone in it. A really enjoyable friendly place to go

A friendly bar with a neighborhood feel. Nice bar menu for snacking. Highly recommend this gay bar for those wanting to get off the tourist route and feel welcome.

Friendly staff, wide range of drinks and fingerfood, relaxed atmosphere. I don't mind if 'MP1973' wants to boycot it, please do so on your own, but it will remain my favourite gay bar in Amsterdam.

Dear MP1973Amsterdam , Before calling out to boycot one of the few gay owned gay bars it would have been nice if you had checked your facts. Pride Amsterdam and Prik's streetparty make a lot of effort to make Pride carbon neutral. This year we...More

Nothing particularly great about this bar but nothing too bad either. It’s your normal next door gay bar in central Amsterdam! The cocktails are watered down and the music is the average gay music you hear anywhere. But compared to the bars in the gay...More

This bar was great. It's fairly close to the centre but off the beaten path a bit so the atmosphere seemed more friendly and relaxed. The drinks were reasonable prices (for Amsterdam), good selection of cocktails, decent music and cute bartenders - what's not to...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
