Small cafe / bar that's off the beaten track where you'll meet more locals than tourists. Several beers on tap as well as a changing variety of seasonal local beers.

A 'brown café'.. In the Jordaan, this pub is a must go. Time stood still, but in a good way. Very distinguished style of hospitality. Hook up with the locals.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
