Zeedijk 63, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1012
Opened in 1927 by Bet van Beeren (a motorcycle-riding lesbian), ’t Mandje was the first gay & lesbian bar in Netherlands and one of the first in the world.
The venue closed in 1982 but was restored and re-opened in 2008. The walls are filled with mementos and old photographs, and you’ll find the bar staff have plenty of anecdotes and juicy stories to tell.
Mixed crowd, but mainly frequented by older gays and girls. Closed on Mondays.
