Café The Queen's Head *

Kitchy elegance in the Zeedijk
Unpretentious and friendly bar originally opened in 1998 by drag queen Dusty and John, overseen since 2004 by Don, with partner Arjan going 50/50 in 2010. There's a warm lushness to the place, with plants, banquettes and shades of maroon giving a cozy/classy boudoir feel, which provides an appropriate backdrop to "bingo hostesss" in drag every Tuesday. Bears have their own night, and the occasional leatherman, skinheads and up-and-coming youth also figure in the bar's special mix. There's even a canal view out back. 2009 winner of the Gouda Peuk Award for Amsterdam's best smoking room.
