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.

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
