Waterpipe 'bars' in Amsterdam

Hello all. While on some trips to Istanbul, I came to really like 'nargile' bars, where you can smoke waterpipes with flavored tobaccos.

I know that Amsterdam has coffeeshops, with that other type of smoking materials, but do are there similar places in the central city? This is my first trip to Amsterdam, so any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have never noticed one. I did find this with a google of the subject. Others may be able to give you more info.

Hopefully this link will work

Both Lost in Amsterdam and the Wonder Bar located on Nieuwendijk between the Singel and Martelaarsgracht not far from Centraal Station. They both have a full bar and several flavors of shisha to smoke from the hookahs.

Of course not; "Lost" is a coffeeshop and included in the ubiquitous coffeeshop guide: www.coffeeshop.freeuk.com/LostinAmster.html

And the water pipe bars in Istanbul are great fun! ;-)

I think that you can also smoke a water pipe at Shibli: www.shibli.nl

Actually, I was referring to tobacco. You mean you can't smoke that in Lost in Amsterdam?

I never seen any in Amsterdam. But I noticed in Düsseldorf there were many in the main street with all the bars in the Altstadt (Bolkerstrasse), perhaps a good excuse for a side trip :)

ok, i dont have a dog in this hunt because i prefer to smoke tobacco conventionally and not out of an egyption bong..BUT flavored or otherwise, out of a water pipe or cigarette..smoking tobacco is banned in public places correct?..so that leads me to believe that flavored stuff isnt actually tobacco?..unless A) they are ignoring the law or B) there is a big loophole in the law..or C) they have provided an area to smoke tobacco separate from non-smoking patrons..
