This is a tiny bar located near Central Station at the entrance to China Town. The building is extremely old and was supposedly frequented by sailors. it is one of the stops that I always make when I have a visitor over, and it's always a hit! As far as brown bars go, this is a nice one and I... More

Situated on the Zeedijk this old cafe has all the charm of an old bar. It is a very small bar so space is limited. If there is space pop in but there is alot in the area if no space.

It's not a restaurant, it's a pub! But excellent one! The stuff is friendly and welcome. Great atmosphere and unique interior. Good local and Belgium draught beer. We' like 'La trappe' (draught) and 'Kriek' (bottle one) the most. Everything is not expensive. Snacks are available. Possible to sit outside on stools or chairs. Lots of locals and tourists but it...

On my chill-out day after two concerts at Paradiso, I made a beer tour in Amsterdam. I was happy after Twa Swans, still thinking of those huge tree shoes the man from Museum of cheese was wearing... A family of mice could row over the channel in only one tree shoe. Ok. let's back in Zeedijk 1 (the street is... More

We stumbled on this pub, having failed to find the one we were looking for (which was in fact pretty well straight across the street). A good bad piece of navigation. It is full of character, even when the resident cat is slumbering (is that its predecessor stuffed on the shelf above?). Good beer, good atmosphere and, as at least... More

We savoured a couple of bottles of Leffe and La Chouffe on a lazy Easter Sunday afternoon, this old, small bar oozes class from its ape-bedecked walls. A very pleasant guy behind the bar, some grand 30s jazz Ono the speakers and a curious wee cat all added to the afternoon... Great wee place

My friends and I spend a lot of time in Int Aepjen whenever we are in Amsterdam. It's a really old place with a great atmosphere and feels like miles away from the Red Light District and you can be sure the stag party hordes will leave it alone in favour of more downmarket places. Even when it's empty it... More

This was no biggie but not a bad deal. Average priced local beer, sat outside on a stool, enjoyed the view and nice vibes. Was there at about 9 or so on a Monday or Tuesday, not crowded, and cool staff on hand.

This is a very old and old fashioned bar behind the Barbizon hotel in Amsterdam, just across the road from Centraal Station. I wandered in a few years ago, and now it is a "must visit" every time I come to Amsterdam. It's dark, dingy, small and crowded, and often full of locals. There are stuffed monkeys everywhere (aepjen... apes...).... More

This is a pub. Not a restaurant. One of the best pubs to visit in Amsterdam if you're looking for something classic and authentic. Stop in for a beer during the day on a weekday and it's the least crowded.
