De Spijkerbar Amsterdam, ook ná kutcorona!

The oldest gaybar in Amsterdam is in big fucking struggles due to Corona, like many of us. For those who still had the possibility to safe cash these days, by not visiting any place that brings joy to life (in terms of bars, clubs, restaurants, concerts, festivals, etc) we herewith want to give you the opportunity to help keeping the Spijkerbar Amsterdam alive by donating for our future existence. In case we don't need the donations entirely to pay the bills, we plan a great party in our bar where all donators will be treated well and celebrate life(be prepared), any leftovers after that, will be donated to the AIDS Foundation. So one way or the other, your donation has an amazing return of investment. We want De Spijkerbar to remain the special place that it has been since 1978, do you help?

More information: This donation is a gift to pay the rent and other costs that the Spijkerbar has, during closure from october 2020 onwards. The government does not support us, as we took over the bar on March 1st 2020, and we are unable to provide proof of turnover of the period before march on which these compensations are based (also because the former owner refuses to deliver his data) We are going to court to get the government to change their minds, but this is uncertain and takes too long. Including rent, staff costs, loan costs, insurances, etc our monthly costs are EUR 12.000,-. Just to give you an idea. For more information, feel free to contact us via facebook or whatsapp.
