Cuckoo' s Nest

Cuckoo' s Nest is a gay cruise bar in Amsterdam with a huge play area in the basement. There is a labyrinth with different types of cabins including a watersports area. 

Action in the Cuckoo's Nest starts right from the early afternoon, and gets quite busy after work (17:00). This place is also popular early in the evenings as the cruise bars in the Warmoesstraat usually do not get busy before midnight.

Condoms are available from the bar or the dispensers. Don't forget to order a drink first before you go downstairs. Leave any valuables at the coat check, dark places always attract pick pockets.

Old men.

Two or three years ago, this was a great place for a beer and a quick f*ck. It seems those days are gone: it's always quiet here, even on Saturday night. No tourists, no cute locals -- just an atmosphere of quiet boozy despair and lots of elderly men.

Wilco, I agree with you that Johnny is being rude, but he is 100% correct.

To Johnny, I too am in my 40's but respect all who want to enjoy this bar. I wonder how you will react in a few years time when you are classed as old. You'll probably stay home and masterbate. Hopefully you will as you're certainly not welcome in our city!

Only good if you're into old and/or mentally ill men. Quiet, smelly and scary.

Amazing place! No silly young people here to ruin the atmosphere with their glowing skin and supple limbs, just a bunch of badly-dressed fifty-to-seventy-somethings drinking the winters of their lives away. Gay Amsterdam at its finest.

On a typical Friday or Saturday night you will find two things here: 1) a small crowd of scary, minging queers aged 50-70, and 2) an atmosphere of despair. In other words, it's just like the rest of Amsterdam.

I'm in my late 20s, and I visited this club in multiple occasions and I must say, actually I like this place. Central, cheap beer, staff is ok, plenty of space, they even recharge the battery of your phone if the battery is dead (very sweet). True, there are old guys as it is true for all the cruising place in the known universe (and personally I'm not into them, just a matter of personal preference) but you can also find young guys. Clearly is not a disco, where the average of the crowd's age is 20, but I never left disappointed. You will always find some young guys to have fun with there if you are young cute, so in that case give it a try.

Mostly mouldy oldies here. Like being in a horror movie full of zombies, only with much worse music (no Goblin here, just a bunch of wrinkled gremlins). Whatever appeal Amsterdam may have held for cruisy gay men once, it's dead and buried now.

This used to be a great place to get some action, but for the past eighteen months or so the (sparse) crowd here has largely consisted of old and creepy men. The same goes for all the other cruising venues in this boring, phoney tourist trap of a town full of ancient mingers. RIP Amsterdam.

Was here briefly around 1:30 a.m. on a Friday night. There was practically nobody there. Amsterdam is a city without nightlife.

Full of OAPs (Old-Ass Phaggots).

If this place had a Western theme it would be called "The Old, the Fat and the Ugly". I guess Grindr has killed the cruising scene for good, and only human flotsam (like me) still frequents places like this.

Too many old guys.

I love this bar! As a youthful man in his early seventies I find this the perfect place to go cruising for young guys in their fifties and sixties. Juicy!!!

I visited the Cuckoo's Nest, Dirty Dicks and Eagle last Saturday (i.e. Pink Saturday as well as the Pride opening night) and was somewhat surprised to find that these places were no less quiet than usual.

In fact, when visiting Dirty Dicks at 11 pm I found all of three people there, one of whom was a youngish tourist, who left in a hurry when he saw what was (not) on offer. Management had thoughtfully removed the bar stools to make more room, but that turned out not to be necessary at all.

Later, a few people turned up, but they were all in their sixties at least.

Let's face it: the Amsterdam Pride has become a party for babymakers, who get to congratulate themselves on how tolerant they are. It's about "culture", "tolerance", "acceptance" and a whole slew of admirable ideals, but I was left wondering what happened to the gay stuff.

Did anybody manage to get laid in Amsterdam last weekend?

Nothing but ugly old men here, all weekend long. The same was true for Dirty Dicks, the Web and Eagle. Amsterdam is dead.

Allemaal opaatjes.

Ik kom vaak in de Cuckoo's Nest, zeker twee of drie keer per week. Het is er gastvrij, de muziek is er vaak leuk en in de zomermaanden is het er goed cruisen. Buiten het seizoen is dat laatste helaas niet het geval: jong en oud, dik en dun, mooi en lelijk -- het loopt urenlang rondjes, maar er gebeurt vrijwel niets. Maar goed, het bier staat koud en soms draaien ze Motown...

Love this place, special these dominant guys in the cellar. Here I met a guy who took me to what he called the Popperpark in Amsterdam West, a small garden with action in the bushes.
