Vivelavie is going to reopen after all

On  the 1st of July Vivelavie closed its’ doors, because the owners wanted to live a little quieter live. They went out with a big bang with a closing down party that was the talk of the town. During those last days there were already rumors that a new generation might take over the bar, but nothing could be announced then yet. And only a few weeks later they were able to confirm the good news.

Vivelavie party at Amsterdam Pride

Vivelavie will not immediately go back into full swing, but at least during Amsterdam Pride they will organize a big party. On Friday 4th and Saturday 5th of August there will be a big Pride party in and in front of the bar in the Paardenstraat. The line-up consists of Nina, Raphaella Brown, Olaf, Charlie and Kai. The party starts on Friday at 7PM and on Saturday at 4PM. On both days the party will last till 1AM.

We are really happy for Rachel & Joy that they able to restart Vivelavie and wish them all the success with this venture. As usual GayLINC will keep you posted on the lasted developments around Vivelavie 2.0.
