We went here for beer tasting. You get a tray with 4 types of beer, water and nuts. A fun place to sit with friends. They also have a brewery there.

Was expecting more from the beer. Not bad, just the expectations were higher. The place itself has a nice vibe and tasty food.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
