Bars with darkroom

Amsterdam has several gay bars with darkroom. We list the sex clubs separately (here), but the distinction between a ‘bar/club with darkroom’ and ‘sex club with a bar’ is vague. The number of bars go up and down, but the ones with a darkroom remain popular enough to stay in business.

Spijker

Pub off the beaten track, but well worth the visit. Located in the cellar of a 17th century building, with pool table and open fire place.

Next to the pool table are the stairs leading to the toilets (mirrored!) and a small, very dark darkroom.
