I visited the bar with my partner when we were in Amsterdam last week. The bar staff were friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The crowd were slightly older. Can't wait to go back.

This is a gay pub with clean drinks and nice service that definitely worths a visit. The view is so beautiful, calm and characteristic for Amsterdam, with all the wonky houses and the canal. I would go there any time of the day or night...More

Bar in the old "english" style (or in dutch "bruine kroeg"). In the pub a friendly and relaxed atmosphere! Not only tourists, but also a lot of locals.

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
