What a little find! There are some great bars along Spuistraat with more reasonable drinks prices than the centre around Dam Square so it's worth spending a few hours here. Found this great place literally on the way to another restaurant and so pleased we...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
