The waiter was a gentleman, a true professional. His courtesy and friendliness were on the level. Oh, and the drinks were ok too- a good bargain. I would love to come back since I was satisfied very much with the atmosphere.

Gay bars are closing everywhere. Those which survive learn that welcoming customers is key to success. Sadly The Queen’s Head has not appreciated this and their staff largely ignore new customers (except for the older bar-man who gave a nice smile). It’s so unfortunate that...More

Nice gay bar and the window seats have a nice view over the canal. It's more of a pub than a nightclub so it's quite replaced. Very nice place to have a drink.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
