Having Dutch parents, I've heard all about the brown bar - the quintessential neighborhood bar from before gentrification. Wandered in here randomly as we were nearby. It's quiet, atmospheric and the bartender was friendly and attentive (which you can't take for granted as Dutch service...More

This is an area with almost unlimited choice of eateries, within five minutes walk. Unfortunately we were disappointed with what was provided, which was pretty average. Try elsewhere.

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
