A beer cafe you MUST visit

One of the places in town with the largest selection of Belgium beers, cozy , friendly, not far from the center and with a good food range. Live band on Saturdays, always recommended to book in advance as the place is crowded at anytime.

This place is a short walk from Vondelpark and the fancy shops on PC Hooftstraat. They do a fantastic meat or cheese board. Very traditional Dutch style food. The chefs bake all of their amazing breads on the premises. This place gets VERY busy. Summer or winter, in the evening it is packed. Normally very quiet for lunch though. They... More

A bigger brother than the much smaller bar near to Spui and with a better food range. The meat platter is great. Always a great vibe in the evening. Try their Precious IPA brewed especially for them.

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
