Red Light District, Amsterdam –
Smaller than the towering pink neon sign outside suggests, Casa Rosso – which has been in business since the 70s – produces Amsterdam’s most well-known and longest-running erotic show.
Even patrons who have been to strip clubs before probably haven’t seen the type of performances presented at this venue.
Customers take their seats in a dark theatrical setting whose only light is the red and black glow over the stage, which is bare save for a couple of translucent stripper poles. The program includes stripteases, a banana show, soft S&M, and couples having sex in front of the audience.
The action takes place on a revolving platform on stage and can get somewhat hardcore, but the show itself tries to soften things up by throwing in humorous acts, audience participation, and specific shows for women.
Much like at a comedy club, the wait staff serves drinks during the show to the crowd of curious couples, bachelor parties, and young travelers.
Although the audience may start out a bit stunned, the rowdier groups of guys and the performers themselves tend to relax the atmosphere so everyone can feel more comfortable and have a good time.
Without a doubt, Casa Rosso offers adult entertainment in spades, as well as an unusual evening out for curious types looking to indulge in a little Red Light District naughtiness.
Drinks are sold only in groups of four, so even if you want just one drink, you’ll still have to buy the €15 four-drink ticket. The tickets are good for any type of drink, whether its beer, wine, or cocktails, so it ends up being one of the best drink deals in town. However, that does mean you’ll be staying at Casa Rosso for as long it takes you to down four drinks!
Mostly bachelor and bachelorette parties, couples, young traveling groups, and tourists, 20s.
The show lasts a little over an hour, with eight to ten different performers cycling throughout the night. Acts perform to music from electronic to R&B.
The entertainers will occasionally use bananas as part of the performance, and will bring volunteers from the audience up on stage to use as props.
Cover charge €30 without drinks, €45 includes four drinks. Free entry for bachelors and bachelorettes celebrating their last single night out.
The same performance happens every night, but weekend nights are most popular, especially after 9pm.
The owners of Casa Rosso also run Bananenbar, Erotic Museum, and other well-known sex shops and peepshows around the Red Light District.
