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. 

El Marssa

in Tobacco

While we wouldn't regard this coffeeshop as large, El Marssa is still fairly roomy. This shop is not especially elaborate or luxurious, but is comfortable and real. This is largely a locals place... people know each other here; but they welcome all.

Smokey

in Hot Food

Smokey is most reminiscent of a theme restaurant; something like Hard Rock Cafe or Planet Hollywood. Classic rock or contemporary music is wafting from the speakers, there are a lot of colorful lights and decorations, and its often quite busy.

Balou

in Various Other

The atmosphere of the shop is also very relaxed and welcoming. This particular shop takes its name from the famous children’s story Jungle Book. Specifically, the lovable talking bear named Baloo (in Dutch, Balou).

Sensemillia Osdorp

in Tobacco

Sensemillia Osdorp is found on the upstairs of a modern standalone building right on the lakefront. The shop is fairly standard for a dutch coffeeshop, minus one very unique feature. They have an outdoor terrace with a stunning view of the lake.

Coffeeshop 96 is a more traditional Dutch establishment. It is unassuming, but practical; functional. The abundance of locals lend validity to the quality and variety of their offerings, including many local strains, and lower priced imports.

D&L

in Various Other

D&L is a small and fairly practical Dutch shop. The owner has not gone over-the-top with decor and amenities. However, there is a fair amount of seating in its Moroccan themed lounge in the back. D&L is unpretentious, but "real" at the same time.

Rock It

in Vapor Lounges, Tobacco

Rock It is a "down to earth" dutch coffeeshop. There aren't a lot of frills here. Instead, it focuses on the basics. Like most shops in the vicinity, they have a nice stretch of outdoor seating to take advantage of the scenery and bustling activity.
