Gay & Lesbian Lifestyles........
Our gay scene in Amsterdam is without doubt the largest in Europe.

Amsterdam is a tolerant, liberal city and open free lifestyles are everywhere ... Leather boys slide'n on down to the "Warmoesstraat" ... the oldest street in Amsterdam ... a friend calls it `La Rue de Vaseline'.

The ... modern, trendy boys, pose down along the "Reguliersdwarsstraat" and hang out often spilling out into the street on weekends.

The classics, mostly camp it up at the "Amstel" bar conveniently and "fortunately, considering it's name" located along the Amstel canal near "Rembrandtsplein".

...said by some to be "the first 'gay bar' in Amsterdam"

Even some straight bars and clubs host gay theme "Club Nights"

Amsterdam's Gay Scene

Are you planning on traveling to Amsterdam soon and are wondering where all the gay hot spots are here?  No problem!

If you're looking for a great place to stay during your stay in Amsterdam, look no further than Hotel the Golden Bear!  It's located on one of the main gay streets and is the first hotel in Amsterdam exclusively for gays!  Also, they offer a free breakfast every morning during your stay there which is always a plus.  If you're looking for a little S&M fun, you may want to check out Black Tulip which is a gay hotel that offers S&M and other fun "toys" in most of their

Speaking of "toys", Black Body and Mister B are just two of many shops in the area that offer a wide assortment of erotic toys and many other items.  If you enjoy reading, Intermale and Vrolijk are gay bookstores that offers magazines, books, souvenirs and much more! 

If you enjoy the nightclub/party scene, there are tons of fun places to choose from in Amsterdam!  Exit is a big club that is especially popular with the younger guys, in particular Asians.  Trut is a very popular gay disco club.  This is a good place to go to get cheap drinks.  However, because it's such a popular place and because there's a somewhat limited amount of space there, be sure to arrive early!  Into the leather and rubber scene?  If so, you'll definitely want to check out Argos Bar which is Amsterdam's oldest leather bar. 

On the flip side, if you're looking for a little rest and relaxation, check out Thermos Sauna which is a huge sauna for gays that is open both day and night.  Of course, you'll need to eat while you're there.  You're in luck as there are many great gay and/or gay friendly restaurants in Amsterdam to choose from!  For starters, Sluisje is a fun restaurant to go to as they have drag shows there during dinner time.  If you're in the mood for Italian, be sure to check out Saturino's.  Are you looking for a new and trendy place?  If so, then Arc is the place to go!  Arc is a restaurant during the day and then at nighttime it turns into a really cool gay bar!

I hope you have a wonderful time in our little city by the Amstel


Information & Assistance

COC in Amsterdam

C.O.C. meant Cultuur en Ontspannings-Centrum, or Centre for Culture and Leisure, a reminder of the pseudonym the organisation initially adopted after its foundation in 1946. COC is the oldest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender organisation in the world.

Since its foundation, COC has been instrumental in bringing about considerable social and legal changes for gays and lesbians in the Netherlands and abroad. As one of the largerst lesbian and gay organisations in the world, COC is devoted to a society which does full justice to each individual irrespective of sexual preference.

Operating on the basis of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, COC has succesfully devoted itself in the Netherlands to a greater measure of visibility, tolerance and recognition of lesbians and gays, and to information, acceptance, equal rights, pension rights, parenting options and AIDS prevention.

COC has its disposal the knowledge, skills and networks to honour all sorts of requests for support from all over the world. This concerns stategic policies, networking, promoting lesbian and gay interests, organisational advice, housing issues, human resources and finances. COC performs these tasks directly and/or acts as an intermediary. All support is tailored to the demands imposed by the situation.

Four COC spearheads
Young people and education
For young people today it is still very difficult to be open about their homo/bisexuality at school. Increasingly, teachers are confronted with problems as well.

Care for elder people
People who have been out all their lives are often in a shock when they become independent on (health) care. Older gays and lesbians are seeking a care system thats meets their needs.

The multicultural society
Society is becoming more diverse. A growing number of people from other cultural and ethnic backgrounds have to deal in some way or other with the issue of homosexuality - not an easy matter, given the very different cultural, ethnic and religious traditions.

International solidarity
The position of gays, lesbians and bisexuals outside the Netherlands is often far from easy. COC can harness more than fifty years of experience with LGBT issues to support them. At present COC is coaching groups in Romania, Moldavia and Bulgaria and co-operating with other countries in European projects aimad the the police, teachers, and the improvement of the position of gays and lesbians in the work environment.

The Amsterdam branch deals with the COC's social side of life. Numerous groups meet here, including the English speaking "Wild Side" and "Love2Love".
The regular "HIV café" is also held here every Thursday, 8 pm-midnight.

The Info center-Coffeeshop is a useful place to get help with any questions you may have about the COC or the gay scene in general.

The COC's weekly discos - mixed (mostly men) on Fridays. Saturday is for lesbians only and the girls pack the weekly Saturday-night party which attracts people from all scenes, and from all over Holland.
