Darkrooms in Amsterdam

I keep reading in Amsterdam travel books about bars that have a "darkroom" What in the world are they talking about?

Well...sugar...its not for developing that great pic you took of a cocktail..but mightly close.
My advice...stay out of them..most in Amsterdam smell like piss. And thats just one more bodily fluid you want to avoid.

Yea, right "not" curious! Funny you asked about them when the only place you could have read about them was in a discussion of "gay" places. So obviously you are "curious". You can drop the "not". None of us really care.

There are happy rooms for happy men in Amsterdam?! Why aren't there any for women?

I don't need the page numbers, curious. I have two of the mentioned guides and all I have to do is look under gay in the index and find those references. They are clearly marked as gay places. Don't be ashamed of your curiosity regarding your sexual orientation. There really is nothing wrong with it. Relax.

I read guide books from cover to cover and I am not ashamed to read the gay parts too. I was just curious about what a darkroom was.
Thanks to all who replied.

A lesbian bar in Amsterdam started a dark room for women some time ago. After a while they found out that all the girls where doing in the dark room was chat with each other! That dark room is closed now.
There are about 10 gay bars in Amsterdam that have dark rooms.
