Cruise bars and clubs

Club Church in Kerkstraat has different fetish nights from Wednesday till Sunday, underwear, naked, leather, sportswear etc.
Most other cruise bars and clubs are located in or around the Warmoesstraat.The bars here usually get started around midnight (and Sunday afternoon).Before that you can go to the Web or Cuckoosnest. These places already get started in the early afternoon each day, and are quite busy after working hours.

Every Sunday afternoon there are cruise and play parties in the Warmoesstraat or at club Church.

Less frequent are Wasteland (gay / straight fetish party, about twice a year), XXXLeather in club Church and the annual Leather Pride parties for the Get Ruff weekend.

Cruising outdoors and parks

Cruising in the parks happens after dark in the Oosterpark (east of Amsterdam) and the Vondelpark. AYOR of course. After dark no police checks but be very careful about robbery etc.

South of Amsterdam is the Nieuwe Meer, with car cruising going on. During the summer this is also a clothing-optional gay recreation area with lots of cruising in the bushes.
