What to expect: The highlight of this bar is its location: down a narrow alleyway across from the super-narrow Trompettersteeg, hidden behind a slightly scary bank of rooms (indoor prostitution “windows”) called La Vie en Rose.
Combined with its “classier” (if they say so) little sis bar La Vie Deux in Rembrandtplein, this is Amsterdam’s only “classic” strip joint. Cost: €2 for two minutes in a booth -- can be shared by two girls or a girl and a guy Sleaze factor: 9.
Private booths offer more, ahem, personal freedom, but apparently, on weekends, it’s common for people to pee in them... What to expect: Welcome to Amsterdam’s last peep show.
Generally performed by real-life couples, who are not exactly "porn-star types", it’ll have you more fascinated than titillated.
This interactive camera near the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky takes you into the center of a Dam Square, with Dam Monument dominating in the center of the square.
By clicking on a links below the camera you can switch the view to see the Gothic Nieuwe Kerk - New Church (the big building across the square), the neoclassical Royal Palace (right to New Church) and the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum which is the most left building on the overview look).
What to expect: The “Banana Bar” is named for its most famous show: where a performer holds onto said fruit with her, um, lower body...
and then buyers may take turns chomping out bites to, er, completion. so it’ll be a game of chicken to see which group shells out for it before the hour is up.
