Bar Buka Amsterdam

***Bar Buka will be closed from January 26th until the end of March 2020 due to renovation of our bar. Exact re-opening date will be announced soon***

Bar Buka. A woman-friendly café in Amsterdam, district the Pijp. We enjoy life and want to be a safe place for many people. That’s not surprising as Buka means “open” in Indonesian. Come enjoy your favorite drink at the bar. Our finger food is ready for you and we are happy to serve you our signature cocktail.

Where Girls Meet

At Bar Buka we want to connect people and bring them into contact with each other. We know how nice it is to have a central place where you can be yourself with like-minded people. We wish to attract visitors from Amsterdam, but also from the rest of the Netherlands and the world. With us, being who you are is good enough. We do not apply a fancy dress code or a strict door policy and believe in respect for each other.

Good vibes only.

We look forward to seeing you in our bar.

Although we focus on the lesbian crowd, our bar is open for everyone, so also for men.

Whether you come alone or with a group, we will give you a warm welcome in our bar! We offer Heineken beer and several high quality brands. We also serve barfood. You can sit at the bar or at a table. During the weekend we will remove the tables so you can dance. We are not club or a restaurant, but a bar in a residential environment, so we have to consider maximum volume limits.

Our bar is visited by women of all ages and from all over the country/world.

Unfortunately our bar cannot be rented exclusively. We can, however, reserve an area for your party, you can hire your own beer tap and we offer bottle serves.

We are always looking for friendly faces to join our staff! If you’re a Dutch speaking person that is able to deliver great service, please contact us at connect@barbuka.nl.
