Rookies

in Tobacco

Rookies was opened in 1992. The owners were said to be the youngest coffeeshop owners at the time, hence their adoption of the name "The Rookies". This coffeeshop is a bit larger than it appears on the outside, and has a traditional Dutch vibe to it.

Dolphins

Dolphins Coffeeshop has an elaborately handcrafted interior, which takes on a deep sea theme. Dolphins, coral, sea urchin surround you in unbelievably detailed 3D sculptures and plaster decorations. The presentation is intricate and beautiful.

Feels Good

in Tobacco

Feels Good has an interesting vibe; like you've walked into a small neighborhood nightclub. In the back of the shop is the smoking lounge, which is partitioned off behind a glass door. It is fairly spacious in here, but also has a bit of privacy.

Baba

in Tobacco

Baba looks like an upscale restaurant or city tea house. It is quite contemporary, beautiful, and polished. We'd assume that no expense has been spared to make the customer feel relaxed and comfortable while they enjoy their favourite bud.

Flower Power

in Tobacco

The decor in Flower Power coffeeshop is fairly basic. However, they do have pinball and arcade games; rare in European cities like Amsterdam, given the premium on space. So if you are into these classic games, Flower Power might just be a nice find.

De Bommel

in Tobacco

De Bommel translates in English as "The Bumblebee." The shop itself is unpretentious, but comfortable. We’d say traditionally Dutch in its practicality. They are not big on flash, but do have WiFi, a tobacco room, and some retro gaming.

Get Down To It

in Tobacco

Get Down To It Coffeeshop is quite large. Three rooms full of tables, chairs, and booths provide ample space. There are even two pool tables in here, and enough room to actually play. The decor throughout would be best described as abstract.

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.

Super Skunk

in Tobacco

The décor inside is contemporary and impressive, and the shop has a decidedly "upscale lounge" feel to it. Super Skunk is actually split into two lounge areas. The front has the counter, which is best described as a futuristic glowing cube.
