Overview

De Tweede Kamer or second living room , first opened it’s doors in 1985 , to swiftly become one of Amsterdam’s household names within the smoking community ! Being among the oldest shops in the city , there is not one Amsterdam smoker that hasn’t heard of , or visited this picturesque shop ! Tweede Kamer is still run by it’s original owner and has an incredibly knowledgeable staff of whom , some of them , work there for almost a quarter of a century ! Famous for their top quality imported and local Hashish and giant choice of highest grade Marihuana strains , De Tweede Kamer is , already for over 30 years , somewhat of Amsterdam’s best kept secrets . If you like to be where the locals are at …. This is the place to be ! Just off of Spui Square , opposite to the side entrance of Cafe Hoppe {one of the oldest cafe’s in the city since 1651!} it is a tiny shop that seats only 20 people , and makes it almost impossible not to engage with the locals . The dealers are all trained Barrista’s and serve a mean cup that you can enjoy together with a lovely peace of their “special” cakes or muffins ! This is probably the most mature shop in Amsterdam ! For musical choice , product knowledge , clientele , hospitallity and the lovely refurbished interior in 20’s apothecary style !

This was a really nice coffee shop in Amsterdam. The staff is helpful and friendly and it has a really calm vibe and wasn't too crowded. I'd definitely recommend it.

Visitors and locals can buy everything. I think you are referring to likely law that Amsterdam may enforce limiting access to locals and try to reduce problems of drug tourism. But I saw several tourists buying and smoking... More
