Overview

Taboo bar is a favorite hotspot for an after work drink and pre-clubbing cocktail. The evening starts with a daily happy hour from 6 to 7pm. The second happy hour from 1 to 2am is the perfect way to continue your night out when the other bars close. On Fridays they serve free hot snacks to celebrate the start of the weekend. On Wednesdays they have a special cocktailnight with a live dj and reduced prices on selected cocktails. The extended happy hour on Sundays, 6 to 8 pm, is extremely popular and the perfect way to end your weekend. 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.

Very small bar with music playing at the right level so you can have conversations. As it was small, we were lucky to get a space for 4 of us, but once in we had a few drinks that were served by pleasant staff.

Nice bar to chill with friends or talk to strangers. Cool for a weekday drink or pregame. Daniel, the bartender has a lot of personality and keeps it entertaining. Also very helpful. I'll be back tonight (Friday)
