De Republiek coffeeshop is located on Tweede Nassaustraat, in the Staatsliedenbuurt section of Amsterdam West. This translates in English as the “Statesman Neighborhood.” De Republiek is very close to the busy s100 ring, just off on a side street. While Amsterdam West is generally more quiet and residential than the city center, the immediate neighborhood around De Republiek is actually quite busy given its crossing such a main motorway.
This coffeeshop is relatively small in size. It is split over two levels, however. The front room has a counter for ordering cannabis, basic drinks, and snacks. Stools pull up to a long bar along the front window, providing a bit of space to hang out and roll up your purchase. There is also a small loft upstairs. It overlooks the main shop area, and provides an area of seating, if you prefer a longer stay. The shop is basic in its amenities, but also quite relaxed and chill in its atmosphere. It is not a bad place to sit for a while.
This coffeeshop is actually owned by the proprietors of Siberië, The Loft, and De Supermarkt. The management is pretty serious about their cannabis. On the weed-side of things, they often focus on more contemporary high-potency strains, such as those coming out of West Coast USA in recent years. For hashish, they like imported pressed varieties from Morocco and other parts. The quality is usually very high. To that, they provide lab tests on a majority of their stock. The reports should include a full cannabinoid profile; giving you some solid information about the products you are considering.
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.
