Coffeeshops in Amsterdam
This directory and map includes listings for all 167 licensed coffeeshops in the city of Amsterdam. Each are reviewed for their features and ammenities, and when applicable, recognized for the quality of their products or service.
Barney's Coffeeshop is regarded as a connoisseur establishment. They have a long history of entering cannabis competitions, and its menu will typically host several award winning strains of weed and hashish.
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.
For a long time this establishment was known as Utopia, but changed hands in early 2018 to become The Plug. Interestingly, the new owner also runs The Plug cannabis club in Barcelona, which is quite well known for its connoisseur products.
Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 132
The name La Tertulia translates from Spanish as "The Salon". This appears consistent with this vibe they are trying to cultivate in this place. When you walk in, you will find a bright and open split-level coffeeshop.
On nice days the management will usually open up one of the wide front windows. Sit next to it. You'll be indoors, but immersed in the beautiful outside air and sunshine. This feature probably places Solo on the "coolest coffeeshop seating" list.
Korte Koningsstraat 2
This shop might just be “the” place for the visiting celebrity stoner. The atmosphere is upscale. The menu is excellent, and boasts many internationally famous strains. Perhaps most importantly though, it is far enough from the center to be quiet.
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.
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
Being in Thorbecke Square, Bushdoctor Coffeeshop has access to a great deal of outdoor seating space. On sunny days, they take full advantage of it. They'll place roughly a dozen small tables outside, and enough seating for several times that number.
An interesting coffeeshop; its windows and architecture are open and modern, and the shop quite inviting. There is cool artwork on the walls, ample seating, even a comfortable couch. We’d best describe Bluebird Coffeshop as a “chill” location.
Sint Antoniesbreestraat 71
