Popular gaybar in the main gaystreet of Amsterdam

Average Reviews


Intimate Gay bar in the Reguliersdwarsstraat, the main gaystreet. With friendly staff, good service, two daily happy hours, an extensive menu with cocktail´s and monthly specials. A nice terrace, large smoking lounge and free wifi complete this busy venue.

Taboo bar is a favorite hotspot for a after work drink and pre clubbing cocktail. The friendly staff is always willing to play your requested music video on the multiple plasma screens. Taboo bar is a great addition to the wide variety of gay venues in the Reguliersdwarsstraat, the main gaystreet in Amsterdam.

Favorite gay bar to go to and the people there are the best. I love going on Sundays especially because of the wonderful drag shows. The owner and bartenders are the best and we love the bar queen Emma. This is a spot to visit.

Such a beautiful bar. There was a bartender named Nate and they were very nice ❤️ I had a blast there. Recommended 100%. If you reading this Nate, you were amazing and keep shining.

Good drinks, not too cheap in pourings, great atmosphere, nice staff. Even in winter you can sit cosily outside if you want, there are heaters and blankets. Inside is great as well. There are little events often. Worth the visit, go and see what they have in store that night!

Great to chill/relax here. Servers are really friendly! But the wines are not the best ones! My husband didn't like it.

LOVE IT!!! Been to Amsterdam multiple times and never had this much fun. Drag queens are funny and entertaining, staff is lovely, drinks well priced and overall had a great experience!

Liked it!Liked the drag queens in itLiked the mini eventAt some point there was a guy harassing a girl, and then he went to the bartender - but she handled it pretty quickly and efficient and he got kicked out fast, without allowing him to come back.Prices are normal to Amsterdam, nothing too high I feel.A pretty small bar but goodYou can also sit outside but inside is where the fun is

A must go! Great music, great drinks and just an overall fun atmosphere. Make sure you see Monique and Sam, they really know how to throw a party! And make sure to check out the unique “stained glass windows.” So much fun, ten out of ten would recommend!

Service is not ok, when you're coming from outside, you don't get treated well. A shame, since they do need local people as well to keep the business running.

Used to come here very often, very fun, but after Corona it's not that busy. The service got a lot better though, David ( I think that's his name.). brought us drinks and entertained us. He was really amazing, will def come back. Love taboo 🥰🥰

Being recently often there and im so dissapointed of staff. Very rude and impolite. Of course their behaviour come from above. We were a group of guys and we left without ordering coz the bartender didnt want to serve us but to someone who came much more later. And also another bartender on other side was trying to avoid a couple waiting to order. Pffff ridiculous!
