Tobacco in Oost
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.
Best Friends Oost Coffeeshop is located in the Indische Buurt, or translated in English, “Indies Neighborhood". Though quite a large building from the outside, at present they are operating as a take away only location.
Clean and unassuming on the outside, Happy People is the corner business in a large historic building. Inside, the feel is quite different. We’d say the theme is Garden of Eden, with a modern mythical twist... a splendid smoking sanctuary.
