lgbt

Whether you want to dance the night away, sip fabulous cocktails in elegant surroundings or catch up with friends in a laid-back bar, Amsterdam's gay and lesbian nightlife scene is hard to beat. Most LGBT clubs and bars are in four areas: Reguliersdwarsstraat, Kerkstraat, Amstel and Zeedijk / Warmoesstraat. And of course, during Amsterdam Gay Pride the entire town is draped in the rainbow flag!
