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
