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
The same group that owns Siberië Coffeeshop also owns the Loft. The management is quite serious about their cannabis menu. On the weed side, expect a mix of high quality strains, including some contemporary items. The hash side is also formidable.
Jan van Galenstraat 285
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 decor inside Family First Coffeeshop is quite interesting and artsy. The tables are painted with colorful abstract images, which are infused with the occasional marijuana leaf. The walls are not bare, but full murals floor to ceiling.
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.
The Sprit is an establishment that would be best described as a cross between a traditional dutch coffeeshop, and a retro amusement center. It has a full wall of pinball machines... arcade games... There is no other place like it in Amsterdam!
1e Hulp literally means "First Help". A reputation for quality cannabis has strengthened interest among visitors, who often make a special trip here. This coffeeshop is quite nicely appointed, with an ornate Arabian them throughout its three floors.
Barney's Lounge is a modern establishment; the decor a bit of a mix between nightclub and a posh coffee lounge. One of several Barney's establishments, which are are known for their award winning strains and focus on connoisseur customers.
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.
