    I’m from the USA.. I’m planning on seeing the Anouk beach concert n September . Are there any gay friendly places to stay? If I stayed somewhere near or in the center of town, how would I get to Schevenenigen? Is there public transportation?

    1. hildeskabinet Post author

      Hi Brian,

      Welcome to Scheveningen Beach! You’ll enjoy the Anouk in concert. She’s one of the best and energetic singers we have in The Netherlands.

      We know a lot about LGBTQIAP The Hague, Scheveningen and surroundings, but we have no current experience with gay friendly places to stay. So for now it’s difficult to give you advice on this question. Because we also don’t know what you can afford or want to spend.

      Low budget opportunities, are: Couchsurfing The Hague: https://www.couchsurfing.com/places/europe/netherlands/the+hague
      or the Hospitality Club The Hague: http://secure.hospitalityclub.org/hc/hcworld.php?city=7513 (but these pages don’t look updated).

      For questions that are not LGBTI+ related, like public transport, we kindly refer you to the Tourist Office The Hague: https://denhaag.com/en/tourist-office

  2. Eden Fantasys

    One of the few long-established lesbian bars (since 1978) in Amsterdam recently changed its interior and door policy. Men are also allowed in, whether accompanied by a woman or not. As their website quotes, Saarein is now open for all queer-minded people’. This small, cosy bar is split into three levels, including a bar, pool table and reading section. Saarein has a loyal following of feminists.

    1. hildeskabinet Post author

      Hi Eden,

      Thank you for your information about the wonderful café Saarein (https://saarein2.nl/) in de Jordaan in Amsterdam. You’re lucky to have such a long-term LesBian & Queer place in the city.

      This Queer Guide is about the Hague, though, so we have no intention to add Amsterdam based queer initiatives. But please, keep us posted if you have a really nice & queer event for where all genders are welcome, because we do travel.
