Amazing place! No silly young people here to ruin the atmosphere with their glowing skin and supple limbs, just a bunch of badly-dressed fifty-to-seventy-somethings drinking the winters of their lives away. Gay Amsterdam at its finest.
On 27 April, Amsterdam colors Orange again for the Dutch National Holiday Kingsday. It's probably dark-orange as the weather forecast isn't great at all. The Dutch celebrate the Kings birthday out on the streets, but this year probably more inside the bars. There are street parties on Amstel (opposite Amstel 54), at the Homomonument on Westermarkt, on Zeedijk at Cafe Queen's Head and in Reguliersdwarsstraat (mixed street party between gay and str8 bars).info
