Brilliant local bar,/Pub, lots of fun always busy, always a good atmosphere, There are many bars/Pubs like Cafe Hoope but for a real taste of the The Dam and you pass this place, stop off get a beer

Great place to hang out after walking the centre and the flower market. The American book store is also next door, where you can while away the rest of the afternoon.

One of the oldest pubs still running with 'grumpy' male staff (the way it should be), lots of locals and therefore excellent fun for an accidental tourist who wants a Dutch pub experience. Sand on the floor, a good choice of booz and even Calvados...More

Visited during the snow in February and had a delicious pint of Amsterdam porter and bittenballen. Beautifully cosy and old interior with friendly bar staff. Worth a visit just for the bittenballen and mustardy sauce. There's a huge range of other authentic Dutch bar snacks...More

It's a bar! there are lots of them in Amsterdam but it's worth popping in if you're interested in political history. The nachos are perfect! Seating inside and out, they seem to be clamping down of spliffing s it's not too fragrant even when seated...More

Stopped in for an Amstel as all we get in the United States it typically Amstel Light. Delicious beer and great choices on the menu for snacking.

one is supposed to have a beer here and possibly some bitterballen; it most of the time is overcrowded and no better than any other pub

Great pub! In the center, near Dam, near, Koningsplein, very central! Nice people, many choises in beer!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
