Cozy gay coffeehouse/bar Loge '90 is centrally located in Rotterdam, just steps from underground station Beurs. Opening hours are from 12 noon till one in the night. Loge '90 is popular with a slightly older crowd. However, younger public also walks in; before or after shopping, after work hours and at night.
The openness of the coffeehouse shows immediately, because of the large sunroom windows and the attractive terrace, where during sunny days guests are watching and being watched. Later in the evening the bar may become a jolly lot. This gay bar is also famous for the happy hour on Sunday afternoons; a well attended hustle and bustle with a very mixed crowd.
An appreciated extra is the plate with warm and cold snacks brought round. The interior decoration is seventies dancing style, with panther print wall carpets and lighted colorful glass ornaments. This gives the bar a pleasant radiation; worth wile for exploration. It is likely that you will get there on a regular basis.
Loge '90 has a close and friendly audience. Mouse-over: Friendly barkeeper Tobias.
Grand Gala Du Loge
At the end of November, Loge '90 transforms into a real French nightclub of the '30-ties. The "Grand Gala du Loge" attracts a mixed public of drag ladies and other costumed hosts. Hostess Esther Hofman presents the programme, and a colourful parade of drag ladies compete for the title of "Miss Grand Gala du Loge". A must for lovers of theater and transvestism.
Loge '90, also organizing theme parties, is closely located to other gay places: Keerweer for the after party, and Ferry which is a good place for a chat and a meal. The bar is daily opened from 12 to one at night.
