This is one of Amsterdam's best underground bars. Used to be a coffeeshop but now they only sell booze, so it became the "Hill Street Booze" . The visual is amazing and if you like stickers, this is paradise. hehehehehe...

I can't come to Amsterdam without visiting here for a drink/smoke! I love the relaxed atmosphere, the staff are friendly, music is good, and the graffiti everywhere is cool! Downstairs is extra chilled, with sofas and a big window overlooking the canal.

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
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
