Kooi

in Various Other

The word Kooi is Dutch, and translates in English as Birdcage. It is hard to put this shop in words, but abstract, artistic, and modern keep coming to mind. Though one of the newest shops here, we think Kooi is already an Amsterdam original.

Jolly Joker

in Various Other

The Jolly Joker coffeeshop is very traditional in its decor. There is a lot of wood inside; bar, tables, benches, trim. It all has a very "corner bar" feeling to it. Not a lot of frills, so much more traditional Dutch.
