Going Out - Queer or not, Prik is Hot!

Prik is a new bar on 109 Spuistraat Amsterdam. After all the stories I’d heard about the “living room atmosphere” and the cute boys on either side of the bar, I thought it was time to check it out. So your curious reporter set out for a visit, accompanied by the necessary prejudices of course. As I entered I was immediately enthusiastically greeted by the barkeeper, which made me feel welcome instantly. The interior is warm and cozy, indeed like a large living room.

Next to the bar you can also sit at the back and enjoy intimacy with your new love and enjoy the delicious cocktails on offer. They also have a menu if you’re peckish. For the snacks of a different kind you’ll have to have a bit of patience. But looking at the diverse crowd, they’re worth waiting for.
Prik is really making an effort to distinguish itself from other bars; I highly appreciated their decision to keep the music low so you can actually have a conversation without having to shout.

Prik’s calendar is quite varied. On the 26th of November they had Zsa Zsa Gaybar’s “Prik je Prijs Prik Bingo” (Pin your Prize Bingo) as part of the “Take Care - All about HIV” manifestation. Zsa Zsa Gaybar had great prizes for the bingo-winners; it was one of the prickliest bingos ever.

By the way, all top vodkas are only 3,50 euros on Wednesdays. The diversity of the program is quite overwhelming. On the 19th of December they have a Morrissey - The Smiths Party. The evening starts at 7pm with the movie “24 hour party People.”

This film takes place in Manchester, hometown of Morrissey and The Smiths, and is about the rise and fall of the record label Factory, the bands Joy Division and Happy Mondays, which all have their roots in that city and who have all written pop music history.

This evening is preceding Morrissey’s performance at the Heineken Music Hall on the 20th of December. Prik hosts a fabulous Prikmass Party on the 26th of December. The bar will be open till late and they’ll show Absolutely Fabulous videos.

There’s no entrance fee for any of these nights!
Indeed, Queer or not, Prick is hot!

You’ll find more info on with also a full agenda (although you have to understand some Dutch, since this website is in Dutch only at the moment).
