Crush Coffeeshop is located on Marnixstraat, at the southwestern edge of Amsterdam Centrum. It is just north of the Leidseplein, one of the more popular destinations in the city center when it comes to nightlife. Crush is actually on a more residential street, however. As such, the area around here is a bit removed from the action, and does not get quite as crowded.
Crush is located on the basement level of its building. Inside, one finds a fairly contemporary and artsy establishment. The seating area is small but open. There are low padded benches against the walls, and small footstools and tables in the center. A large flat screen television is hung against the back windows. There is also beautiful mural art on the wall, tile flooring, and plenty of modern wood trim. The place feels quite comfortable and cozy. Additionally, a closed room is found to the side. This is a tobacco lounge; allowing the shop to comply with EU smoking laws, and permit its consumption on premises. Also of note, we found Crush Coffeeshop to have one of the more well maintained restrooms in the city.
The cannabis menu at Crush Coffeeshop is moderate in size. Expect maybe a dozen options on the flower (weed) side, and maybe half that for hashish. For weed, they focus mainly on traditional old-school Amsterdam strains, which you may find alongside a bit of contemporary genetics here and there. The hashish is mainly imported from Afghanistan and Morocco. You might find a little isolator (nederhasj) if you look, though. Additionally, they have pre-rolled joints and space cakes. Aside from cannabis, you can also order coffees, teas, and basic snacks here.
