Get Down To It
Get Down To It Coffeeshop is located on Korte Leidsedwarsstraat, or the “short cross street of Leidsestraat”. In case you were wondering, there is also a long or “lange” cross street. This street leads right into the Leidseplein, one of the city’s most popular destinations for nightlife. Get Down To It is right outside, though close enough that we would consider this one of the shops in the Leidseplein. This coffeeshop is found in the basement of the building. As such, there is not much natural light that enters. Still, the shop is well lit.
The layout is such that you are presented with a glass counter upon entering. This is for ordering your cannabis products. Once you make a purchase, you can walk around into the shop’s smoking lounge. It is quite large. Three interconnected rooms full of tables, chairs, and booths. There are even two pool tables in here, and enough room to actually play.
The décor throughout this coffeeshop would be best described as abstract. There is some classic tiling on the floors, unique brass lighting fixtures, and mural artwork all around. It all does a good job of making the place feel more open (and above ground) than it actually is.
The cannabis menu at Get Down To It Coffeeshop is fairly large. There are usually well in excess of a dozen strains on the weed (flower) side. For hashish (concentrate), not quite as many, but still a diverse product selection. Having a closed smoking area, this coffeeshop also allows for tobacco consumption. Additionally, Get Down To It promotes itself as an “Internet Cafe Coffeeshop”. This is perhaps not quite the draw it once was, but you can for sure stay connected while visiting the basement. They also serve coffees, teas, juices, soft drinks, and some basic snacks.
This shop is featured in our 368 page Hardcover book CONNOISSEUR GUIDE: AMSTERDAM COFFEESHOPS.
