I've been here with a friend in a very busy Saturday night and I found this bar to be very cozy and overall friendly. A perfect escape from the busy streets to get yourself a nice beer.

I came here with my gay friend and he and I had a great time. The people are really friendly and the music and atmosphere is fantastic. The drink prices aren't too bad for the area either at €14 for two drinks.

Looking for a pub that wasn't rowdy and with a view of the canal. Ticked all boxes and a great pint at a great price in such a busy area.

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
