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.
