The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
How to get there

I haven’t had a chance to drink at this bar as I was treated with utter rudeness from one of the members of the staff. I had no idea I’m not allowed to use bathrooms in the local bars. The member of the staff insulted me and told me that “I was rude” for not saying hello or asking for a bathroom although I didn’t hear him at first as I walking through. He screamed at me and sweared at my back as I was leaving the Red light bar speechless and humiliated. I think even if I was not right by assuming I can use the bar’s toilet I didn’t deserve such an insulting treatment. This is a horrendous incident, I couldn’t even protect myself as I was afraid that with the escalation of the conversation he might push me or grab me. You guys suck big time for hiring this guy.

Friends decided to do an amsterdam pub crawl. The guides were awesome, and every pub except this was a blast.

My friend went to the bar to order drinks, and the bartender pulled out glasses. Then the guide for the pub crawl told us that we were leaving for the next bar. The bartender was standing right next to us and heard all of this. My friend told him repeatedly that he did not want the drinks which had NOT been poured yet.

The bartender then decided to pour the drinks anyways, and he then swiped my friends wallet from his hands and took money from it. We got the wallet back, but both bartenders left the bar to confront my friend (even though they already stole his money?). Luckily the other members of our group pulled the bartenders away and we left instead of starting a fight.

This bar is not safe. Our group is generally non-confrontational, but when you grab someone’s wallet this could have easily escalated into a brawl. If the owners care about the integrity of their bar and the safety of their customers I hope they follow up on this.

This bar is so welcoming and just a awesome place to grab a drink and hangout away from the madness of the streets.

I recently visited chilling and having a beer with my boyfriend and due to not eating and feel well I passed out, ‘which I’m sure the locals and staff maybe used to seeing’ although the staff were very attentive and checked on my safety and gave me water and assistance which I’m grateful for.

I was upset and so was my group to find out that the door staff were irritated that I couldn’t get off the floor and were rushing me to be removed from the bar. I think a little more public safety awareness needs to be addressed.

Will visit again loved it!

We spent a few hours here on a Saturday afternoon. We had 3 or 4 beers while sitting by the font window, people watching. The lady behind the bar was friendly, the beer price its OK, for the city centre.

The Red Light Bar was like many bars you may have been in before, the key difference is that it's in the world famous Red Light District. There wasn't anything special that stood out about the bar, it was well maintained, the staff was nice, there are two pool tables and one of which is in a smoking room. There's a nice variety of drinks available for those who get their fix with hard liquor or beer.

Went there after canal cruise. Very hot night, and very crowded, smell of hashish everywhere. Sex workers displaying their wares in long windows before the crowds. It’s fun but not for everyone. There are rickshaws, though not cheap.

Bring a bottle of water and don’t rely too much on google maps. Fun.

Went to the red light bar twice while visiting Amsterdam. We found the beer prices a little better than other taverns. Very friendly staff and patrons. Loved the atmosphere. Would go back tomorrow if we weren't in Canada!
