The name of this shop translates in English as "The Balloon". Het Ballonnetje is one of the oldest coffeeshops in the city, first opening its doors in 1978. So, this is a historic place. It is also one of the more quintessential Dutch establishments.
Abraxas is a theme coffeeshop. It takes its name from the children’s book “The Little Witch”, and is similarly mystical is its style of décor. The counters, stools, and tables appear as if they were grown out of trees. Feels like Harry Potter, LOTR.
Jonge Roelensteeg 12-14
Coffeeshop Roxy has a very upscale feel to it. The place looks more like a trendy restaurant or small art gallery than a traditional Dutch coffeeshop, which is typically more austere. They also have a reputation for quality hashish.
Gerard Doustraat 188
This establishment is relaxed and unpretentious in its appearance. It is also owned by the same group as Siberie, The Loft, and De Republiek. As such, expect to find a connoisseur menu here. This is one of the few shops that invest in lab testing.
Frederik Hendrikstraat 69-HS
The cannabis menu tends to be moderate in size at Greenhouse Effect. They are also big on edibles, and we've recognized this shop for it. If you are in search of something a bit more elegant than the traditional bland "space cake", come here.
CoffeeshopAmsterdam is aesthetically impressive, with a combination of exposed brick, modern furnishings, and cool lighting that makes this shop contemporary and inviting. Sister shop to Tweede Kamer, and a connoisseur establishment.
In the back of this location, one will find numerous display cases showing off various trophies and other awards that Green House has won. They also have a "wall of celebrities" in the far corner. They've had no shortage of famous customers here.
Oudezijds Voorburgwal 191
in Hot Food
Smoke Palace is large, and the decor beautiful. Custom tile and wood work are featured on the walls and counter throughout much of the shop. Add mirrors and track lighting, and you have a place that looks more a nightclub than a coffeeshop.
Linnaeusstraat 83 HS
This shop is really a take-and-go. The management has a sister bar/cafe/restaurant across the street called Kashmir Lounge, which is large, luxurious, and stunningly beautiful. If you stop here for weed, we recommend crossing the street to smoke it.
Jan Pieter Heijestraat 82
The Bij Coffeeshop is quite different from the old-school vibe of many others in the city. It has the medically professional feel of a pharmacy or Colorado cannabis dispensary. The shop decor is clean and clinical, and budtenders wear white coats.
