“Terrible customer service.”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

On the night we visited the barman obviously decided he was only going to serve locals. Despite standing at the bar he continually served regulars who arrived and continued to ignore us. Eventually served after 10 minutes on a quiet night. There was also a handbag theft the night we were in, not a good sign. Needless to say we didn't go back on the remaining 3 nights of our Christmas stay. We used to think this was a good bar but obviously need new barman/manager.

“Pleasant little spot”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

A friendly and cozy spot for a drink or two. Gets a mix of locals and tourists and tends to be a bit older crowd. All in all very comfortable spot for a drink weather alone or with friends.

“Worst Experience! Thugs that work there aren't friendly”
Reviewed 20 December 2012 via mobile

This would have to be one of the worst gay venues in Amsterdam. I am surprised how they even still operate. Its a tiny venue with barely enough room to move, over priced drinks. Never start a tab as there are no credit card facilities nor is there an ATM nearby and the thugs working there will assault you for not knowing this 'this is all I can say due to taking legal proceedings out against management'. Would not recommend this place to gay or straight visitors ever.

“Bingo night!!”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 via mobile

This pub is a very nice but small building they have bingo with small prizes and regular transvestite,s who do karaoke in there.
It's very cosy in there and its very entertaining a defiant adviser to visit when in Amsterdam
