Listings in Various Other and Seed Shops
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 coffeeshop is owned by the proprietors of Siberië, The Loft, and De Supermarkt. The management has been quite serious about weed, often focusing on the more contemporary high-potency strains. All four are regarded as connoisseur coffeeshops.
Tweede Nassaustraat 1B
New Times would be best described as a modern coffeeshop. The interior is highly polished. Clean hardwood floors frame the room, and the shop is accented with purple lighting and trim. They have recessed lighting, and other contemporary fixtures.
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!
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
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.
El Guapo is a chill and artsy shop. One of the most notable features of the interior is an airbrushed scene, which covers one full wall, front to back, top to bottom. It is beautiful and colorful work, presented in a sort of urban spray paint style.
Nieuwe Nieuwstraat 32
Softland is a theme coffeeshop. Walking into this establishment feels like you are entering a spaceship. The closest thing we can liken it to would be the Ripley Scott movie Alien. The room is long, the floor is metal, and your steps reverberate.
Kadinsky Coffeeshop on Langebrugsteeg is one of three shops operating under the Kadinsky brand. The front has a beautiful large window, and the outer facade is of handcrafted polished wood. It gives the shop an upscale city pub feel.
Crush Coffeeshop is located on Marnixstraat, at the southwestern edge of the Centrum. Inside one finds a fairly contemporary artsy establishment. The seating area is fairly large, with low benches against the walls; stools and tables in the center.
