Grey Area is short on amenities. Don't expect a TV, hot food, or much by way of snacks or coffee. Grey Area is about one thing: cannabis. This establishment has established itself as one of the most recognized connoisseur shops in Amsterdam.
Oude Leliestraat 2
Barney's Coffeeshop is regarded as a connoisseur establishment. They have a long history of entering cannabis competitions, and its menu will typically host several award winning strains of weed and hashish.
With a slogan such as “Creators of Champions”, the GreenHouse Amsterdam brand clearly understands that without top quality cannabis, even terrific ambiance wouldn’t give them worldwide awareness and reputation. Those are earned, which this shop has.
This coffeeshop is a true "chill out" place. The furniture (especially the couches) are comfortable, the music is hip (we think so anyway), and the management keeps the guests happy. They have everything from milkshakes to chocolate chip cookies too!
Eerste Bloemdwarsstraat 2R
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.
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.
In the back of this location, one will find numerous display cases showing off various trophies and other awards that Green House has won. They also have a "wall of celebrities" in the far corner. They've had no shortage of famous customers here.
Oudezijds Voorburgwal 191
This shop gets its name from Bagheera, the black Indian leopard from famous children’s novel The Jungle Book. In contrast to the aggressive logo of Bagheera Coffeeshop, the actual vibe of this place is relaxed and welcoming.
An interesting coffeeshop; its windows and architecture are open and modern, and the shop quite inviting. There is cool artwork on the walls, ample seating, even a comfortable couch. We’d best describe Bluebird Coffeshop as a “chill” location.
Sint Antoniesbreestraat 71
Club Media coffeeshop is located in Oude Pijp (the Old Pipe) neighborhood. It is right adjacent to the Abert Cuypmarkt, a busy outdoor market which attracts a lot of locals and tourists alike.
