These are NightGuide's essentials on Utrecht's LGBTQ scene
Café Kalff on a busy evening
One of Utrecht's most well-known LGBTQ-friendly hangouts, Kalff welcomes everyone to come and have a good time. From their own website "Go where you're celebrated, not where you're tolerated." really speaks to the atmosphere of this place. Ideal for drinks and mingling to the sound of Top40 music, the place is open every evening except Mondays. Our recommendation: try the Thursdays, their wildest night.
Body Talk Utrecht!
Also open everyday off the week, and not far from Kallf, is Body Talk. Friday's go late till 04:00 but Thursdays are also solid nights with the party lasting till 03:00. Usually busy and lively, it has a small terrace, friendly staff and a party-worthy atmosphere that remains cosy even at its wildest moments.
