Out for a night on the town in Rotterdam? Make sure not to miss Strano. This small yet friendly club has been part of the Rotterdam gay scene for many years. Chances are you will want to stay for good.
Strano is populair in Rotterdam, especially among the hip and happening. Among its crowd you will anything from young students up to smart-dressed almost 40ers. The music is loud but you’ll still be able to have a conversation. The barman/DJ plays recent dance hits as well as gay classics. The latter accompanied by a heavy beat. The way the bar is set up makes it perfect for flirting or checking out the other side of the room. Strano’s signature drink? The Bacardi Razz Mojito is a must-try.
Early in the evening, Strano is usually not too busy. But things start to pick up around 11PM and the place will be packed around 1AM.
The familiar looks of Strano. Mouse-over: Strano is visited by a divers but mostly young crowd.
