“Excellent atmosphere ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We walked up to this place from our hotel around the corner for something to do.

Excellent pool bar with lots of tables, great music and helpful staff.

We arrived not knowing what to do and only being able to speak English.

Great space to spend time.

“Very friendly and good quality tables!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

My friend and I ended up going there 4 days in a row and playing pool. The staff is super friendly (one of them made sure we got different beers every time, all VERY good tasting) they have many 9ft tables, including 2 in a smoking area (where other sorts of smoking also is allowed)
If you like pool, this is a MSUT when in amsterdam :) Tram line #1 gets you there :)

“Get your butt down to Plan B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

This isn't just your run of the mill poolhall, this is more of an experience if not anything else. Tucked away at the end of an alley of the main street called "Overtoom" in Amsterdam you might think that it's going to be a seedy place, filled with all kinds of hustlers and cutthroats and you'd be right. Worn out tables and poolsticks bent in every direction but straight. Bartenders who would spit in your beer to water it down. That's what the place looked like when it was used as a locale for a narcotics trafficking gang in a cops series, earning the place television fame.

Of course the place looks brilliant, the staff is excellent and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Come on over if you want to play a game of pool on every imaginable level. Or just have a drink of whatever's your poison at the bar. Or play some darts, or one of the boardgames, or..., or...., kind of anything really.

Forget the windmills, the tulips, the red light district, smoking a blunt, spliff, doobie. If you want that mindaltering, lifechanging experience when visiting Amsterdam, get your butt down to Plan B!

“Poolhall Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

By far the best poolhall in Amsterdam. Love the vibe, good tables and very friendly staff.
Also good place to drink some beers at the start of your evening.
