Café The Queen's Head

99% love it
Kitchy elegance in the Zeedijk
Unpretentious and straight-friendly gay 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 drag-compered bingo evenings every Tuesday. There's even a canal view out back. 2009 winner of the Gouda Peuk Award for Amsterdam's best smoking room. Note that smoking in bars stops being legal summer 2020.

      Great crowd and good staff
      Friendly pleasant bar service even when really busy and this place gets very busy at times. Great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather, and people watch the passing trade

      Very nice bar
      Specially the bingo tuesday from 10:00-1:00 is hot. The only weekly bingo presented by a tranvestite. Its theater, bingo and a big show! ( opinion of a local)

      A great place to be for all kinds of gays. especially also if you want to taste the real "Amsterdam atmosphere" you should pay a visit. To my understandig one of the best, if not THE best, gay bars in the city
