Terminator Coffeeshop is named after the famous 80’s movie of the same name. They borrow some graphics from the film, but otherwise do not go too overboard with it. If we had to make a comparison, we’d say this place feels like an artsy dormitory.
Admiraal de Ruijterweg 104
The name of this shop translates to English as “The Stork”. This coffeeshop takes its avian connection quite seriously. Once you step inside, you’ll be engulfed by a tropical theme, and even find plexiglass windows into resident pigeon coops.
The Dream is a fairly traditional Dutch coffeeshop. The decor in the smoking lounge is basic, with not a lot of frills. This isn’t a touristy “theme” shop. It caters largely to locals. The key attraction here is likely the billiards table.
Witte de Withstraat 30-A
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.
The decor in Coffeeshop Ruthless is best described as contemporary. The color scheme is a strong mix of red and black. It makes the place feel a bit like a small Asian restaurant. You half expect to order Pho or Pad Thai with a side of weed.
De Watersnip is a juice bar and take-away coffeeshop, in a part of Amsterdam is not widely visited by tourists. Though there is no smoking lounge here, the lobby has just enough space to roll a quick joint before heading back into the neighborhood.
Lodewijk van Deysselstraat 37
Trefpunt translates into “meeting point” in English. To that end, this shop does seem to live up to its name. Trefpunt Coffeeshop is a popular gathering place for locals. The interior is decidedly contemporary in appearance.
The inside of Coffeeshop Super Skunk is fairly contemporary. There are bar stools lining a brightly lit ordering counter here; very funky. Around the room, several hightop tables and leather-topped stools. The place feels like an upscale hotel bar.
