On our recent trip to Amsterdam,we made a point of visiting as many great beer bar's that this great city has to offer. It is no longer a point of just drinking,heineken,Amstel,brand,dommelsch,or gulpener beer's while your here. Craft beer bar's are popping up all over Amsterdam,the Gollem cafe bar's,were the first and in my opinion,still the best. We were here... More

Gollem's is a busy spot for locals who like to have a beer or two. On many nights, there is live music and there is much to choose from when it comes to beers. Watch your head when descending for the toilets!

Well this bar was found and frequented by me several years ago, when I picked a hotel on the same street. It is a lovely place with lots of beer, good selection of tap beers, including Belgian Kwak, as well as a magnificent choice of Belgian bottled beers. Food is good with typical bar menu, including burgers and so on-... More

Great beer list, great location, but a little hidden in a back street. Not many tables, and quickly gets full, but well worth the visit if you can get in. Nothing to do with Lord of the Rings ;)

One of three bars of the same name in Amsterdam, two of them being small - this being the largest of them. As others have said, a great bottled beer range and being larger a very good tap range. Try on tap the beer specially brewed for them: Gollem Precious. A lovely IPA. The food was most reasonable too: I... More

Lovely service, best beer of the low lands, great atmosphere, good food en great coffee; what more do we want? Maybe a tad lower prices, then again; for everything you get for it in return.... totally worth it!

Prior to a visit at the Rijksmuseum, we booked a table for dinner at Gollem, my brother and I love beer and this place is defiantly beer worthy! Lots on draught! When it comes to food, it was average. It was ok but nothing special. Took ages before the food was served. Wasn't that busy when we showed up. Will... More

Lots of beer of all descriptions with staff happy to guide, help and advise. Snack lunch was splendid. Great for a quiet beer and a snack on the hoof altho I am sure hardened (!) beer drinkers could enjoy many hours working their way thru the offerings..
