Blue Lagoon Coffeeshop is found on Overtoom, in the Helmersbuurt neighborhood of Amsterdam West. It is just to the north of Vondelpark, which happens to be a wonderful place to stroll on a warm sunny afternoon. We highly recommend a visit when the weather is nice. This part of the city is largely residential, and has a more urban feel to it given that many of its buildings were constructed in the 1900’s.
The décor of Blue Lagoon coffeeshop is contemporary. There is polished hardwood floors, colored accent lights, dark trim, and a lot of overhead recessed lighting. The atmosphere is chill and comfortable. It feels somewhat like a neighborhood coffeeshop.
In this shop one will find a large closed-off tobacco smoking lounge. Inside, ample table and stool seating, as well as a full-size pool table can be found. Outside, there is additional seating along with a bar, where one can purchase cannabis products, coffees, teas, others drinks, and snacks. There are also several large screen TV’s found throughout. Though Blue Lagoon is popular with local residents, the vibe of this establishment seems quite welcoming of visitors.
The cannabis menu at Blue Lagoon is modest in size, as expected of a shop that caters more to locals than tourists. As for the selection, it is best described as traditional. On the weed-side, the strains are typically old school. Think genetics such as White Widow, Haze, and Bubblegum. They probably have less than a half dozen options on the hashish (hasj) side. The hash gets listed first on the menu, however, which likely reflects a more prominent focus for this shop. Expect to find some quality imports here.
This shop is featured in our 368 page Hardcover book CONNOISSEUR GUIDE: AMSTERDAM COFFEESHOPS. A MUST-HAVE for any serious visitor to the Amsterdam scene, it is the first book ever to profile all 168 coffeeshops in the city, with vivid full-color pictures, detailed descriptions, amenities, and locals/regulars recommendations for the "best of" shops in a variety of categories.
