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.

WInterqueens, Coby & Dusty!

Mar 18

Net voordat de winter officieel is afgelopen, gaan we nog 1 keer genieten van de performances van twee bingoqueens van de Zeeijk. Dusty is natuurlijk 20 jaar geleden begonnen met haar bingo's en heeft hiermee de Queen's Head en de Zeedijk beroemd en berucht gemaakt, met haar vlijmscherpe humor en prachtige chansons. Coby heeft jaren later het stokje overgenomen, en entertaint nu elke dinsdag heel Amsterdam en omstreken met een bingoshow vol humor en muziek. Samen staan deze diva's op het podium, en staan ze stil bij 20 jaar the Queen's Head. De aftrap van de vieringen rond 20 jaar the Queen's Head begint op deze zondag, dus probeer vroeg te komen als je lekker wilt zitten. Tot zondag!
