Start at the Queen's Head

Recommended for : Party
Check into the Hotel CC on Warmoesstraat. Its superb location in the middle of gay Amsterdam and contemporary deco make it a good base for any party animal.
First stop is The Queen's Head pub to quench that travel thirst and ease your way into the Red Light District. Although one of the city's oldest gay bars, it bills itself as hetero-friendly so expect a somewhat mixed crowd in there. 
After a few drinks, wander down the Oudezijds Voorbugwal towards the Amstel and get lost in the its little streets, full of sex girl window fronts inviting passers by in for a session. 
Freshen up back at the hotel and get ready for the night ahead, which starts 10 minutes away at PRIK - which actually means bubble in Dutch - for good cocktails and nibbles served by a very cute staff. 
If you fancy an unforgettable night Amsterdam-style, you might want to check out the Sugar Factory, a place where performance meets clubbing. On the Leidseplein, a 15-minute walk from PRIK or a short tram ride away (either lines 1, 2 or 5), the Sugar Factory mixes live acts, art installations, a packed dance floor and DJs. 
Once you've danced your fill, boys head to Church on Kerkstraat, the club where the boys go to play. Depending on the night you might be in for the 'Slave Auction', 'Meat Market', spank! or the oil party. There is a dance floor also there, but the action takes place upstairs and downstairs. Save some energy for the 20-minute walk back to the hotel or grab a taxi, which won't be cheap but should get you back in only 8 minutes if the traffic is good late at night. 
For a good breakfast in a cute bakery, go to the nearby De Bakkerswinkel, with a cute interior, a wide breakfast menu and beautifully baked breads to help you refuel. 
After a gentle stroll to the Homomonument on Kaizersgracht, visit the Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht, literally two minutes away from the Homomonument. With a bit of history covered, its probably time to try those famous local beers. 
For a proper tasting of Dutch beers in an iconic setting, take a 20-minutes bike ride (or half hour by tram if you're still delicate) to the Brouwerij 't IJ brewery. Lounge back in the garden and admire this very Dutch windmill go round and round whilst you savor a homemade brew.
