As Amsterdamers know, the city is home to a plethora of coffeeshops. They come in all shapes and sizes, from ultra-modern to psychedelic and retro. But, which ones are worth a visit? We’ve rounded up the best of them all, from traditional to trendy.
If you’re looking for a modern and super clean place, then look no further than Coffeeshop Sloterdijk. It’s filled with natural light and boasts a minimalist design. The staff are incredibly friendly too; man in bowler hats greet you at the door while “cannabis sommeliers” (in white doctor’s coats) help you pick the perfect strain for your day. It’s definitely a place for coffeeshop first-timers.
For a more hippy-ish experience, head to Abraxas in Jonge Roelensteeg. This small and cosy coffeeshop is popular with tourists thanks to its central location and free internet. Plus they have an extensive cannabis menu featuring lots of classics and a few newcomers like the Zkittlez and Amnesia Haze. The place is also very eco-friendly and gives back to the community.
Another well-known and popular coffeeshop is Barney’s in Haarlemmerstraat. It has a very relaxed vibe and is popular among locals and tourists alike. The menu features a wide variety of sativa and indica strains as well as edibles and pre-rolled joints. We love that they’re open about their focus on the environment and give back to their community. coffeeshops in Amsterdam
