“Best Belgian beer bar in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I love this bar! They have a great Belgian beer selection and a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is also fantastic. One of the best places in the city to hang out and have some great beers!

“My nr 1 'must visit' place in Amsterdam every time I'm there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Gollem is very small place with outstanding atmosphere, with huge selection of beers of all kinds. You should also try their snacks - olives & cheese plate with honey. Highly recommended.

“200 beers, 20 on draft”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Tiny bar with mezzanine - great atmosphere, friendly barman with good recommendations as to what to try. Spent a very peasant afternoon sampling our way through a selection!
Love the bar cat Felix who slept curled up on the windowsill, then uncurled & weaved his across the top of the bar avoiding any spillages!
Some people have also posted reviews for this bar under "cafe gollem" which is in a different part of town
