GreenHouse United Coffeeshop (also sometimes called Green House Lounge) is one of the most famous shops lining Haarlemmerstraat. This street is found to the north end of the Jordaan. This surrounding neighborhood is regarded is one of the more "hip locals" in the city, and is known for an abundance of small craft shops, trendy restaurants, and independent boutiques. It is also home to a few of Amsterdam's more upscale coffeeshops. GreenHouse United is unquestionably counted among them.
One of the first things you notice as you step up to GreenHouse United is that the entire front is glass, and opens up wide. It makes the place feel open and airy. You'll find one of the most beautiful counters in Amsterdam to the left. Beyond it, leather booths and tables on both sides of the main floor. The seating is posh in here, and the decor is highly detailed. The shop is also lit as if it were a nightclub. Combine this with modern but relaxed music, and you have a really cool and chill atmosphere. Don't forget to look down. There is a giant fish-tank in the middle of the floor, with some of the most massive koi you'll ever see!
The split-level setup in the back is another nice surprise, and provides extra room both upstairs and downstairs. Something that also stands out in here, very noticeably. The celebrity pictures. There are framed photos hanging all over the shop's wall. Many of them are are signed. The subjects are a literal "who's who" of canna-supportive celebrities and bands. Big name visitors to the GreenHouse Amsterdam shops have included 50 Cent, Ludacris, Bill Maher, Snoop, Cypress Hill. the Roots, Miley Cyrus, and Mike Tyson, to name just a few.
Though beautiful, it is probably not the decor that makes this shop so popular. With a slogan such as “Creators of Champions”, the GreenHouse Amsterdam brand clearly understands that without top quality cannabis, even terrific ambiance wouldn’t give them worldwide awareness and reputation. They have such a reputation, which was clearly earned through years of hard work. This shop has more Cannabis Cup victories than we could count, and likely any other shop. The trophies are also displayed all over this place.
The cannabis menu at GreenHouse is not to disappoint. You have a large selection of weed strains broken down by category such as outdoor grown, organic, and exclusive. Their hash selection is also plentiful, and includes both imported and higher potency local (nederhash) varieties. Many of the options are likely to be competition winning varieties. For those that prefer vaporizing over smoking, you’ll notice a Volcano for use on their main counter. Just ask for the necessary ballon (valoon) and filling chamber.
The regular menu is also exceptional. This is one of the few shops in Amsterdam that serves hot food. And they don't just sell quick toasties or cold sandwiches, either. They have a full menu with all sorts of options including hot breakfast (eggs, pancakes, etc.), burgers, steak, steak sandwiches, salads, and milkshakes. We highly recommend the frappuccino (coffee milkshake). Of course, they also offer a full variety of coffees, teas, juices, and other drinks.
