Prix d'Ami Coffeeshop is located on a Haringpakkerssteeg (Herring Packers Alley). It would be hard to describe this street as anything but an alley. It is short and quite thin, and sort of has a dark alley feel to it. Even so, it can be quite busy with travelers. Haringpakkerssteeg connects the Damrak, a main artery into the city center, with Nieuwendijk, an extremely popular shopping street.
It is difficult to tell from the outside, but Prix d’Ami is massive. This place is actually the largest coffeeshop in Amsterdam. It can probably hold a couple of hundred people, perhaps more. This shop exists on three floors, and has a total of six separate rooms. The décor is similar throughout, and would best be described as modern. Where there is seating, you will find plush silver leather couches and stools, or wooden benches with silver leather cushions. The colors silver and purple seem to be theme to this place, a combination that works quite nicely. We’d definitely describe Prix as more of a weed nightclub than a traditional Dutch cannabis bar.
This coffeeshop is rich on amenities. For starters, it is the only shop with a 3D movie lounge. You’ll find it in one of the rooms on the top floor. This is a really cool touch if you just want to chill out and watch something. They are usually showing something with a stoner theme, or that is rich with a trippy story or visuals. They have a billiards hall in here as well. If you are into music, check their schedule. On many evenings they have a live DJ.
How about food or drink? There is waiting staff to service each room in the house, making sure their guests have all they might need. It is of note that the menu options are quite broad on both counts. For beverages, you can order just about anything you can think of including sodas, coffee, fresh mint tea, hot chocolate, juices, and smoothies. The food menu is equally impressive, with a full range of sandwiches, tosti’s, Panini’s, salads, pizzas, gourmet burgers, even some entrée choices and desserts. Visit Prix d’Ami Coffeeshop in the morning, and you’ll find they also serve eggs and pancakes, including a full English breakfast if you’d like.
With regard to cannabis, Prix d'Ami has an extensive menu. They offer the greatest variety on the weed side, where you will typically find listed upwards of a dozen strains. The selection here includes a few traditional old-school favorites, but mainly contemporary items. There are several choices on the hashish side, usually traditional pressed items from places like Afghanistan, Morocco, and Nepal. In addition, they offer a variety of pre-rolled pure and mixed joints, and space cakes.
