Amsterdam Gay Bars

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.

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.

add a review & photos

Opened in 1927 by Bet van Beeren (a motorcycle-riding lesbian), ’t Mandje was the first gay & lesbian bar in Netherlands and one of the first in the world.

Closed in 1982, but restored and re-opened in 2008. The walls are filled with mementos and old photos, and you’ll find the bar staff have plenty of anecdotes and juicy stories to tell.

Mixed crowd, but mainly frequented by older gays and gals.

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.

audience rating: 3.7 stars from 7 votes - click to vote

add a review & photos

Gay bar with nightly sing-alongs and occasional drag shows. Very popular with locals, young and old. On the weekend, the crowd spills over to the street by Amstel River.

Amstel 54 has a laid-back atmosphere. Small but cosy. Best to go after 11pm when the DJ plays pop classics, from Madonna to Rihanna.

Pay 10€ to play their drink roulette game and see what drink deal you’ll win. Fingers crossed, you land on the bottle of Prosecco.
