The Queen’s Head

Amsterdams coziest bar

Average Reviews


Tucked away on the bustling Zeedijk street in Amsterdam, The Queen's Head, which first opened its doors in 1998, is much beloved for its eclectic mix of events, most famously its Drag Queen Bingo nights every Tuesday. These lively evenings combine humor, community, and the unique flair of drag performances to create an unforgettable experience for both locals and tourists alike.

The interior of The Queen's Head is as charismatic as its events, featuring a classic Dutch "gay bar" aesthetic with red wallpaper, chandeliers, and plush curtains, evoking a 1950s glam kitsch vibe. The bar offers a cozy backroom with romantic views over the canal, perfect for more intimate conversations or simply enjoying the scene.

Weekends at The Queen's Head are particularly buzzing, with live DJs spinning a mix of top hits and classic tracks that keep the atmosphere lively and welcoming. In addition to its regular events, the bar also hosts special occasions like the "Queens in Queen's" drag shows and biweekly gatherings for the bear community, ensuring that there's always something new to experience.

Hit and miss. I went on a Monday and had a great time with bartender Rob. Went on a Tuesday when there was drag bingo, and the bartenders were the worst....

Mike and Tom were absolutely lovely. Please come! Enjoy a drink and great company even though Tom is 38, he can still relate to Taylor Swift fans.

Very nice and fun place. Was a bit annoyed in the end when they sold me a drink just to close the bar just one minute after. Felt like a rip off.

Tom is the best bartender in Amsterdam. Made me feel so welcome. I was a solo traveler and had the best time!

The Queen’s Head is phenomenal! I attended their Tuesday night Drag Queen Bingo with some friends and had the best time. The Queen was hilarious and such a captivating performer. Tables must be reserved in advance, but the bar is first come, first served (arrive around 7pm for the 8:30pm show if you hope to snag a seat!). Once all of the bar stools are taken, it is standing room only. The bartenders (shout out to Kevin, Daan, and Tom!) were so kind and played the best music. 10/10 would recommend!

The Queen’s Head was wonderful!! I had so much fun attending drag bingo. Everyone was so welcoming. The staff also helped me get home safely after my phone died. I’ll definitely return next time I’m in Amsterdam!

Really friendly, relaxed gay bar with good classic decor incl. glitter balls, disco lights in the daytime, pop music, candles, and a really nice vibe! Drinks are nice and not too pricey. 🏳️‍🌈🍻 Proost!PS, if you're looking to eat before your pint, I recommend Het Melkmeisje just on the corner across the bridge. Nice people, good food. 👍
