Cafe Nol

Bar in the Jordaan reknowned for it's drag acts. The ultimate scream of an evening I've heard, with queens from the closet in the crowd and more queens on the stage. Absolutely Fabulous.

I love this cafe. The old sailor man his name is uncle Jan in Holland we said ome Jan. Somebody said that he thinks that they don't speak English. Every Dutchman speaks English :)

Tip from a Dutchman; don't go there sober, or if you can't stand cigarettes. Very small and crowded on a good night. It's a place to meet students, "regulars", expatriates e.o. fun people! There's a relic old sailor dude who's always there!

My Score:
Cafe Nol is a typical Amsterdam Cafe in the style of the old inhabitants of the Jordaan. It is basically 'over the top' red carpet on the wall and the bar, porselain statues, aweful lamps which become beautiful from their uglyness... I bet they don't speak English or any other language for that matter. The owners are typical Jordaners (not people from Jordan but a neighbourhood in Amsterdam) and they speak the original Amsterdam slang. A great place !
