A happy-go-lucky, essentially lesbian environment that is open to all comers, straight, bi, or gay, Saarein is typical of the Jordaan’s brown cafes in that the bar staff and clientele are cheery, welcoming, and happy to talk. With a decent selection of draught and bottled beers, live music, DJs, and one of the few pool tables in the Jordaan, the bar becomes the center of much of the action during Amsterdam Gay Pride.
