You are spoilt for choice when it comes to gay bars in Amsterdam. Most gay venues are located in two main areas:

Reguliersdwarsstraat, Amstel / Kerkstraat – home to a great choice of bars & cafés
Old Centre – historic city centre with Dam Square at its heart

in Reguliersdwarsstraat / Amstel / Kerkstraat

A major gay street in Amsterdam. Reguliersdwarsstraat is home to many gay bars, restaurants and shops. More authentic Dutch gay venues and cafés can be found around the nearby Amstel area.

Equally close is Kerkstraat, a historic street that runs through the city centre and a newer gay neighbourhood with some late-night cruise bars including Club Church.

Bar Blend is the newest addition to Amsterdam’s gay scene, and located on the famous “gay street”, Reguliersdwarsstraat at n.41.

Bar Blend is a stylish bar, spread out over two floors with great music, video clips, friendly staff, and a fun atmosphere. It has a great ‘blend’ of customers with regard to age, gender, and sexual orientation.

There is a varied selection of entertainment, including a weekly drag show on Friday, Sunday and Monday Bingo, as well as occasional Eurovision Parties and ‘Guilty Pleasure Tunes’ nights. Check their website for the full event schedule.

You can also use the space to host your own party or event. Contact the owners, Valy and Jorge, for further information.

English-style gay bar in the heart of Amsterdam’s gay scene. SoHo is great for drinks after work or pre-clubbing. Resident/guest DJ spins dance music on the weekend.

We like the bar’s outside terrace area – a great spot to take a breather from the hot dance floor. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Relatively small but popular gay dance bar & café that plays a great selection of house music every day of the week.

Popular with young gays and gals, with plenty of eye candy on the dance floor. Arrive early and  squeeze in! Daily happy hour between 1am-2am.

PRIK is a friendly gay bar hidden in the heart of Amsterdam, wher you can come and relax either indoors or on their lovely terrace. The menu consists of yummy bites and unique cocktails like the Strawberry Cheesecake and Dutch Pepper Bomb – with or without a little ‘prik’ (as prik means bubbles in Dutch). Don’t forget the Prik (Prosecco) from tap in white and pink!

Prices are just as friendly as the boys serving you. In the weekends this loungy bar turns into a packed out mini dance club, with the exception that there’s never a cover charge, the music is always great and the crowd always fun! Amsterdam’s best gay DJ’s spin an eclectic mix of vocal dance, hot pop and funky disco. Check out the website what’s going on right now.

PRIK has been serving Amsterdam since July 2006 and won numerous awards since, like “most popular gay bar of the Netherlands”, the Rainbow Award for best gay bar and “best gay venue of Amsterdam” twice by time out magazine and also best LGBT terrace Amsterdam.

Friendly gay bar, owned by a drag queen and her partner. The Queen’s Head has a small terrace with a nice canal view, DJ’s on weekends and bingo on Tuesdays.

A great place for drinks and conversations, though the place gets busier as the night progresses. Every 2nd and 4th Sunday, Queen’s Head hosts Netherbears – a social club for bears, bearded men and admirers.

Cosy, old-fashioned gay bar in the heart of Amsterdam. Cafe Saarein is one of the few original old taverns left in the city.

You’ll find great music here, along with a pool table and lots of friendly people hoping to make friends. A fun night all round. Closed on Mondays.
