GreenHouse Centrum Coffeeshop is part of the famous GreenHouse Amsterdam brand. It is located on Oudezijds Voorburgwal , a small side-street off Damstraat, just outside the Red Light district. This shop sits canal-side, in one of the busiest parts of the city center. Though it isn’t the largest or most beautiful of the GreenHouse shops, it is likely the most popular.
GreenHouse Centrum has an artsy modern decor inside. The bar counter and tables are custom made - all carved wood with a high gloss finish. In front of them are fixed cloth-topped stools, which are anchored into the hardwood floor with metal bases. Many of these bases are large metallic cannabis leafs, which adds a really cool effect. The walls are also decorated with tiny rocks and shells; and behind the bar is a giant wall of pebbles. Additionally, there are accents like dark wooden shelving, custom glass/lighting, and chrome fixtures. It all ties together to make this one of Amsterdam’s more upscale establishments. Unfortunately, this place can get so packed at times that it can make it difficult to take in its beautiful decor. Too many people to see it all together!
The GreenHouse brand is associated with not only coffeeshops but cannabis breeding. They have entered many competitions over the years. Many of the decorations in their shops are a testament to the quality of their work. In the back of this location in particular, one will find numerous display cases showing off various trophies and other awards that GreenHouse has won. They also have a “wall of celebrities” in the far corner. As you will see, this shop has had no shortage of famous customers over the years.
The cannabis menu in all GreenHouse shops is similar, and extensive. The offerings tend to be heavier on the weed-side (flower), with typically more than a dozen varieties grouped into several different categories such as “Haze, Organic, Special”. The hashish side of the menu is not short of offerings either, typically both domestic and imported varieties.
A volcano vaporizer is also available for use here. They also offer pre-rolled joints, and an ample menu of coffees, teas, drinks, and snacks. Perhaps it is the award winning cannabis, the celebrity clientele, or both, but GreenHouse Centrum is inarguably one of the most famous of Amsterdam’s coffeeshops.
