One of the main elements that helped develop Reguliersdwarsstraat (behind the famous Flower Market) into the hippest and most stylish gay district in the city, Arc is a chic two-room lounge featuring two sleek bars, modern seating, and two flat-screen TVs projecting clips of the latest runway shows. A comfy terrace provides additional seating and is a popular place to mingle and discuss fashion under the sun. The classy, open vibe attracts regulars ranging from fashion celebrities like designers Victor and Rolf to international artists and trendy straight couples – but despite the well-dressed clientele, frequent photo shoot after-parties, and model castings, the overall mood remains surprisingly easygoing. A delectable menu of martinis, cocktails, and long drinks combined with the spirited crowd make Arc a great place to enjoy a sociable night with friends or a fabulous starting point for a fierce evening on Reguliersdwarsstraat.

Tip from Adriana:

This entire street is both gay and straight friendly and accepting of everyone with an open mind – not to mention a good fashion sense! On warm nights the whole street is like one big party; it’s impossible to pass by this mob of good-natured, good-looking people with cocktails in hand without wanting to join in.

  • Crowd

  • Entertainment / Music

    Mellow house and background tunes.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Excellent selection of cocktails and flavored martinis including watermelon and toffee. Menu featuring appetizers, oysters, flatbreads, lamb chops, and salads. Happy Hour daily 5–7pm. Champagne nights on Tuesdays.

  • Prices
