Lesbian bar in Amsterdam

Where girls meet

Good vibes only

A great way to start your evening. At Bar Buka we want to bring women together. We hope to offer a safe queer place where you can be yourself, surrounded by like-minded people. We do not only want to attract guests from Amsterdam, but also from other parts of the Netherlands and the world. Being who you are is good enough. No fancy dress code or strict door policy. Good vibes only.

What kind of crowd visits Bar Buka?
In general 95% of our bar is visited by women: of all ages, from all over the country and from different parts the world.
Are men welcome?

Although we focus on the female crowd, our bar is open to everyone, so men are more than welcome as well.

What to expect at Bar Buka?

Whether you come alone or in a group, we will give you a warm welcome! We serve Heineken beer and other high quality brands. You can order fingerfood and you are also allowed to bring your own food.

We sometimes broadcast sports games, especially football. You can sit at the bar or at a table and we have a box with boardgames. During the weekend we sometimes remove tables so people can dance. We are not a club nor a restaurant, but a bar in a residential area, so we have to consider maximum volume limits.

Can we organize a party at Bar Buka?

It is possible to celebrate something (e.g. birthday/graduation/casual drinks/bachelorette party) at Bar Buka. Unfortunately our bar can´t be rented exclusively during the weekends, we can however create an area for you.
Party during the week? Contact us via connect@barbuka.nl for the possibilities on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.

Karaoke at Bar Buka?

Every third Saturday of the month we host karaoke nights.
Our bar is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but we are willing to open for private groups/companies who want to enjoy karaoke. For karaoke events on other days, please contact us to make arrangements.

What kind of payment methods do you accept?

We accept Maestro, Visa, Creditcard, American Express and cash.
