Nice gay bar and the window seats have a nice view over the canal. It's more of a pub than a nightclub so it's quite replaced. Very nice place to have a drink.

I visited the bar with my partner when we were in Amsterdam last week. The bar staff were friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The crowd were slightly older. Can't wait to go back.

This is a gay pub with clean drinks and nice service that definitely worths a visit. The view is so beautiful, calm and characteristic for Amsterdam, with all the wonky houses and the canal. I would go there any time of the day or night...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
