I went on XXXLeather night in harness and jockstrap but was denied entry because of my sneakers - they were black but I think they were too sporty? Not sure. If you go on this night, prepare for a very strict dress code.

De laatste keer dat ik hier was viel het erg tegen grotendeels door het personeel... zodra ik binnen kwam had ik niet echt het gevoel dat ik welkom was. Het personeel was chagrijnig en totaal niet sympathiek.
Het was no towel night en ik wilde later op de avond een baddoek om me af te drogen en vroeg een medewerker om een baddoek die hij zou halen maar niks... hij werd afgeleid door een spierbundel... ik werd compleet genegeerd.

Soms zijn er dagen dat het personeel vriendelijker is afhankelijk welk team er staat.
Het personeel hoort vriendelijk en respectvol te zijn bij elke klant, dat is hun werk of je nou dik of dun bent blond of donker, het is duidelijk te zien dat ze dat niet doen.

I love this place, wild and safe, all kind of men, no attitude at all. It can really gets packed at some point, it could be a bit uncomfortable if you like more space for yourself, but otherwise it's amazing. Highly recommended.
