Chapiteau is actually French for “Marquee”. While the name might conjure up visions of a mega nightclub along the lines of Marquee in Las Vegas, Chapiteau is not actually a hangout spot. This shop is exclusively as a take-away location these days.
Van Boetzelaerstraat 31
Clean and unassuming on the outside, Happy People is the corner business in a large historic building. Inside, the feel is quite different. We’d say the theme is Garden of Eden, with a modern mythical twist... a splendid smoking sanctuary.
Carmona blends into this neighborhood well, and seems to be popular among locals. This coffeeshop is contemporary, yet unpretentious. The shop's smoking lounge is spruced up with traditional Moroccan themed pillows, and padded leather benches; cozy.
Tweede Jan van der Heijdenstraat 43
Ibiza is the largest coffeeshop in the immediate neighborhood. The place is ornate in detail, starting with the bright blue painted building facade. Presumably named after the mediterranean island, the theme here is “island smokers' paradise."

Yo-Yo Coffeeshop is open, spacious, and bright with natural light. This is an impressive coffeeshop on several levels. Aside from the shop itself, they are also an art gallery (galerie), serve delicious hot food, and have legendary hospitality.
Tweede Jan van der Heijdenstraat 79/HS
420 Café has an opulant polished hardwood interior. Not what you expect of the average Dutch coffeeshop, the interior is opulent. 420 is filled with beautiful polish hardwood, giving it a feeling of an upscale café, or perhaps urban microbrewery.

Inside Roots Coffeeshop, one will find a decidedly new and contemporary vibe. Its hardwood floors, polished light-colored wood furniture, and an overall black, white, and wood scheme for decor make the place feel more like a cafe or bakery.
De Kroon means “The Crown.” We assume this is to convey a sense a quality. With a name like this, you risk not being taken seriously if you fail to deliver a memorable experience. Fortunately for De Kroon, they have built quite a nice shop here.
