Very nice bar, it is labeled as gay bar but there was all kind of people there.
Bartenders were very friendly and attentive, especially Felix.

A Nice Place To Chill. Cool Crowd But Warm! Second Time Visited Here Was With A Local And An Even Better Experience!

Nice looking crowd, young and nice looking bar men's. Price's are very reasonable
Unfortunately the crowd is very clicky, cold and distant. They look at you strange once you try to talk to someone. Despite that the atmosphère seem warm and friendly.
No one will talk to you because they all stay with their friends, or playing with their I-phones...cold & distant crowd..not like in the old days!

Love this bar! Wasn't impressed with Amsterdam's gay bars until I found this place. You need to know where to find it as it's not in one of the (dated) gay streets. Clearly I'm not the only one liking this place as it was pretty busy most of the times I visited. Got packed sprawling out into the street during the weekend when they have DJ's on. What I most loved was that it's not a stereotype kind of gay bar. Just a fun mix of all sorts of gay guys having a good time. Together with the lovely guys behind the bar (and the fat ginger bar cat) it makes this bar my favorite.

Let's just say, that if it wasn't for Jakko (the bartender) I wouldn't gone here the second, and third time around. Fantastic bartender, efficiently, loves his job, and seriously does his best for people to feel welcome. Recommended!
