Amsterdam Cafes

Amsterdam Cafes

The atmosphere of Amsterdam is very illicit. It has prostitutes and hookahs at every street corner. The climate is altering by the way. The city is shutting down its brothels. The coffee shops were ordered to choose between marijuana and alcohol.  Weed was the preferred option. But Holland will ban smoking in public places. This will affect trade and commerce. Amsterdam is the most tolerant and progressive city.

Not all is lost. The city has a thriving and rocking culture, which remains unmatched with all of Europe. The Dutch café serves coffee, alcohol and beers. Most of them open at 3 am.

Amsterdam is famous for its cafes and coffees. Discover the atmospheric spots and strike the balance between lively bar and lazy café. That is the spirit of cafes in Amsterdam.

Imagine candles with wax dripping and fireplace on fire. The beer flows abound and walls indicate smoking for decades. That is why the term Bruin café is well known. The conversation revolves around football and politics.

These Amsterdam cafes are warm and friendly. The following cafes are the most famous in Amsterdam and begin the summer love in these cafes.

1: Café de Wetering

The café is loaded with people of all ages. This trending café is easy to miss. It is hidden in central Amsterdam streets.  Sit in the bar and chat with the bartenders. On freezing nights, it’s so romantic and magical.

Amsterdam has many brown cafes, which display neighborhood character.

2: Café Berkhout

This was a derelict bar. But now it has been refurbished now and called Latin Quarter of Amsterdam. It has a bohemian reputation. It is located across the street from Heineken brewery.  It is a natural chill out spot. It has a regular football crowd and curl up on the lazy leather couches.

3: Café Pels

This café is located in the Amsterdam’s shopping district.  The Café de Pels is an affectionate spot with wine flowing. It is one of the cooler spots in Amsterdam. Have breakfast and read the morning newspapers.

The Amsterdam brown cafes are world famous. Aside from tobacco stained walls, they are relaxed and cozy. It is the intellectual hub of the city and literary crowd sits around.

5: Café t Arendsnest

It sells exclusive Dutch beer and furnishes the country’s sixty breweries.  One from each brew is available here. The manager Peter Van der Arend is a national expert.  It has a club like feel. For serious drinkers, 10.5 percent alcohol is available in one drink.

6: Brouwerij t IJ

For beer lovers, this café is first on the list. The reason is good as it has the city’s microbrewery. It looks like a school canteen. It gets full marks for drinking. Booze your way out.

7: Café Alto

Netherlands claims that, they brought jazz music to Europe. That claim may seem silly and outrageous. It is true that some great jazz artists hailed from Holland. It gets crowded when the music starts at 10 pm.
