GreenHouse United Coffeeshop (also sometimes called GreenHouse 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 as one of the more “hip locales” 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 walk up to GreenHouse United is that the entire front of the shop is made up of side-by-side glass panels that open up wide. It makes the place feel spacious and airy. You will 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, and the décor is very 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.
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 wall of celebrity pictures. There are framed photos hanging all over one of the walls in the shop. 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.
With the slogan “Creators of Champions”, the GreenHouse Amsterdam brand clearly recognizes that without top quality cannabis, even terrific ambiance would not give them world recognition and reputation. They have such a reputation as a result of years of hard work. This shop has more contest victories than we could count, and likely more than any other shop. Take a look at some of the trophies that are prominently displayed throughout.
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 will 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. There offer a full menu, with options including hot breakfast items (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.
