Welcome to

Café The Queen's Head

One of the oldest gay bars in Amsterdam

Welcome at the website of Café The Queen’s Head!


Café The Queen’s Head is located in the Red Light District in the old centre of Amsterdam for nearly two decades. This typical down-to-earth and straight friendly Dutch gay bar attracts a broad variety of public. Visitors, locals and even celebrities like to hang out here. The cozy bar is famous for its weekly bingo nights hosted by either one of our fierce Drag Queens or our tiger print Diva Coby van Dam and offers a smoking area at the attractive canal side.

The bar organizes special programs around (gay) events like Amsterdam Pride, King’s Day and during weekends our resident DJ’s play their funky and catchy music for you on the dance floor. Extra plus: no entrance fees and no attitude staff to welcome and serve you. The place to be if you want to enjoy Dutch gay life!

Events

The Queen’s Head is a hot spot for organizing your own events. We can host your birthday, wedding, party or any special event during opening times. Check behind the bar, send a PM through Facebook or contact us using the form below.

More about us


Having been a down-to-earth gay hotspot for nearly two decades, Cafe the Queen’s Head continues to be a bar with a very diverse clientele. Some of our regular guests have been visiting the bar for years, but every day we also have tourists and newcomers enjoying the stunning view over the canals for the first time.

While Cafe the Queen’s Head is a gay bar (not just gay friendly), we welcome guests of every gender, race, sexuality and age. Embracing diversity has been at the heart of the Amsterdam gay scene, and we are very happy and proud to see this diversity in our bar.
