Still pulls them in
Straightforward and cruisy bar with a history and, given its continued popularity, a future it seems. The leather/textile balance veers far more heavily in favour of the latter than in olden days, but the bar retains a certain pleasurably and reassuringly sleazy feel, underscored by an upstairs darkroom with ten individual cabins and a sling. Sunday late afternoons and early evenings attract a regular and relaxed but still up-for-it crowd, often in conjunction with drinks in the Zeedijk, particularly the Engel. Friday evening Happy Hour pulls them in. Opened in 1985 by a guy named Barry. Current owner Ray Jones took over in 1987. There's been no rooftop access since 1995 owing to neighbour-unfriendly public sex.
