Amsterdam Gay Pride

Gay pride is the biggest local event in Amsterdam. The highlight is the parade, which is on boats through the main canal. It has almost half a million spectators watching from the side. The rest of the weekend is filled with various culture events, massive street parties and many indoor gay parties.

Thermos Sauna

yesterday, 04:45   

it's a lot bigger and comfortable here, lot's of tourists still come here since they know the place from before, some nights like saturday are becoming busier again, and also during the week since they are open till later, and open 24/7 saturday till monday. There are still a lot of ideas waiting for initiative and action, they are busy restyling though, uhhh, 3rd floor, mmmm, don't know... afwerkplekken without well... just a little little bit of light in the dark areas please, more slings, with and with some less light, bareback movies since everybody watches them at home, don't be the preacher, people are wise enough to look at it and still do it safe! now it's a waste of space in some area's, because I can't tell the difference between 18 or 68 years in total darkness... that labyrinth on the 4th floor, it needs something... and downstairs, so much space to make it more lounge style like NZ... Do something to make the swimming pool more inviting, private.. less light, less concrete seats! and the locker areas, also just a little softer light! I like NZ, and Thermos is still nice in unexpected ways and times, despite all the criticism here. I like the competition, the choice, there are disadvantages having 2 competing sauna's but in the end both places have there own atmosphere and advantages. Keep on improving though! The steam sauna smells bad and needs some sexual updating. But I have the same in NZ: too difficult to do something elaborate there... The dry sauna is too dry, the showers too light? to wide and open.. And where are the condom and lube dispensers on all floors and in every corner! And YES, some staff members have not only a bad attitude, but some have none at all, they just don't see you, don't look at you, don't say hello, don't say goodbye, some have the face of my grandfather in his grave. Really, for 30-50%, the staff can make or brake a place. Fire those that can't or refuse to smile and be nice or welcoming! Be strict in this, don't think people don't care if they themselves are not so friendly. If the staff makes you feel good you start to make the staff feel good and so on! Otherwise let them at least pretend to give you the feeling of being very welcome! There is really still more arrogance here than friendliness! Some try, but...

Hallo, ik kom regelmatig in NZ maar afgelopen vrijdag (17 oktober) liep er wel een erg jong lekker ding. Als je dit leest, ben je er vaker? Meer mensen die hem zijn opgevallen en meer over hem weten?

Love this place. Music is a slightly more alternative and way less boring/predictable than at the bars at the Reguliers. Also, i don't feel ripped off when i order a gin-tonic or something that isn't beer. Music is loud but you can still hold a proper conversation in the quieter corners of the place.

The people who go here are quite young, but once in a while they have a 30+ party. Many people are happy to strike on a conversation with a stranger.

I'm a semi-regular visitor. I've experienced the employees (actually, they're volunteers!) as being extremely friendly. Sometimes they joined me with a drink, occasionally free things happen, and if they're off shift they might have some interesting stories or gossip to tell from the rich history this place has.
Still, i wouldn't be surprised if one of them would throw vodka over your phone. Keep the thing in your pocket or only use it at the toilet stalls...

Spannende winkel, binnen lagen heel veel leuke dingen en alles wat ik kocht werd keurig in een neutrale zak ingepakt. Voordat ik naar buiten wilde gaan sprak een man me aan en nodigde mij uit om de cinema in te gaan. Dat was een voltreffer, we hebben er zeker drie uur liggen geilen, had van mij langer mogen zijn!!!

voormalige bankbediende wordt nu terecht keihard afgestraft voor zijn incompetentie
