This is one of the most popular gay bars in Amsterdam, attracting a mix of gay and straight customers aged between 25-40. The crowd is pretty mainstream. It's the sort of bar you could take your mum too and everyone will have a chat with her. The secret to its success are the fashionable, but not over-the-top decor, easy going music and the friendly bar staff. At the weekend there's normally a DJ playing current pop music and there's a small dance floor. Drinks are reasonably priced and around 40% of the customers are tourists or expats.
