Amsterdam Gay Dance Clubs & Parties

Amsterdam Gay Dance Clubs & Parties

Amsterdam has a well-established gay clubbing scene, with regular gay nightclubs and dance parties to suite all tastes.

BACKDOOR is one of Amsterdam’s best LGBT+ dance events in the heart of the city center.

BACKDOOR is the place where self-expression is the key. Where gender has no name. Where circuit meets tribal meets leather, nerds, muscle mary’s and their sexy girlfriends in one all-inclusive atmosphere. It’s the LGBT+ party everyone’s talking about. The party takes place 4 to 5 times per year. The venue (Melkweg) prides itself on welcoming all members and friends of the LGBTQ+ community.
BACKDOOR presents Matrix Party (Spain) on Sat. October 8th, 11:30pm-06:00am. MATRIX is well-known for their amazing parties in the capital city of Spain, but also for the popular Matrix Sun Festival in Torremolinos. Get ready for a co-production of one of the MATRIX’s best party events “I CONFESS”. 
 
DJ-line up: MANUEL DE DIEGO (Matrix Resident), DIEGO SUMMERS (BACKDOOR resident), and introducing Guest DJ MARGA MARGARET. Save the date. Book tickets here. Or check out the events website and Facebook page.

Tomorrow:  3 NYX - three floors of music - guest DJ'

NYX is a 3-floor gay dance club on Reguliersdwarstsraat. In case you are wondering, NYX was a Greek goddess and daughter of Chaos who would fly through the sky bringing darkness behind her – rather appropriate for a nightclub.

Each floor offers a different style of music, and the focus is very much on a fun night out with as little pretension as possible. Check NYX’s website for details of upcoming parties.

TRUT (which translates to ‘Bitch’) is a very popular Sunday underground gay disco, offering good value-for-money drinks and relatively low entrance fees.

Profits from TRUT are paid to a number of different charity projects – more than 100,000 euros over the past few years.  The venue can only fit about 200 people, so arrive early or expect to queue.
