It's official - The Argos will be closing (permanently) at the end of this week (last business evening 31 dec through 1st jan).
The end of an important part of Amsterdam’s (and indeed Europe's) gay history / culture.
The Argos meant a great deal to a large group of leathermen, and was 'the-place-to-be' for the leather/fetish crowd in Europe from the 70's through the late 90's. The dark-room was a legendary across the whole english-speaking world (and probably much wider too).
This event is listed inactive, below is the original description:
Bar Argos was the oldest gay leather bar in Amsterdam. Unfortunately is has been closed.
