While originally a gay coffee shop and still very much gay friendly, The Otherside welcomes visitors of all types, provided they are open and welcoming to others. The dark wood and faux stone interior makes for a more upmarket, stylish atmosphere than most Amsterdam coffee shops — this place even comes with chandeliers. Seating is plentiful if a little cramped on busy days, so be prepared to sit shoulder-to-shoulder with the people at the next table. Tables are reserved for those buying their smoking products at the bar and there is no wi-fi, which has the benefit that people tend to stay off their phones here. Music at The Otherside tends towards the jazzy and soulful as opposed to rock or techno. One of the big draws here is the coffee shop menu, which offers a wide selection at good prices for such a central location.

Not a 'coffeeshop'. Like many regular coffeeshops, they actually don't really tolerate 'smokin'. The Other Side is a good place though. It is dark and smoky like most 'coffeeshops'.

It is a perfect day to visit Bear Brew, a coffee shop tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood on the western side of Beijing. I ride my electric scooter 40 minutes across town, a straight shot west, skimming along the bottom of Tiananmen Square. En route, I drive past a plethora of other coffee shops. Bear Brew is located in the Xisi neighborhood, which tends to be quieter and a bit less explored than other districts.

The East Hollywood coffee and espresso bar, which opened in July , had been closed during the COVID pandemic , but still hosted virtual events for the community, particularly for queer and transgender people of color: a meditation group, a book club, and relaxing techniques. Cuties also was a safe space for people who are gender nonconforming. Wide Eyes Open Palms, a queer owned and operated coffee shop in Long Beach, is still open for business. All events and activities will remain online.
