Café 't Mandje was sinds 1927 het café van de legendarische Bet van Beeren. Zij was de oudste dochter van een familie met 14 kinderen uit De Jordaan. Voor Bet, zelf lesbisch, was iedereen gelijk en haar café stond, in een tijd waarin homosexualiteit strafbaar was, open voor homo's, lesbo's etc. die zichtzelf konden zijn tussen de zeelui, hoeren, buurtbewoners, acteurs, schilders en intellectuelen die hier ook kwamen. Het interieur is in de loop van 80 jaren volgehangen met allerlei souvenirs: van afgeknipte stropdassen tot directoires en heel veel foto's.
Café 't Mandje (meaning "little basket") was opened in 1927 by the legendary Bet van Beeren. Eldest daughter of a family of 14, born in 1902 in De Jordaan, lesbian Bet was a pioneer in human rights and she openly welcomed gays, lesbians etc. in times when homosexuality was illegal, to mingle with the sailors, neighbours, artists and intellectuals who also frequented the little bar. Inside still remains the enormous collection of souvenirs: cut-off men's ties, underwear and lots and lots of photo's.
