I come here often. To pool or to chill at the bar. It's a nice and cosy poolbar right in the centre of Amsterdam. Always something going on! There's about 11 pooltables downstairs and 3 more upstairs in the smoker's room. The barstaff is very friendly and always there to advice you some nice usual and unusual drinks! ;) 10... More

My friend and I only meant to pop in for an hour, but we ended staying about 3 hours because we were enjoying the place so much. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly. An excellent range of beers, too.

It was Sunday, our last night in Amsterdam and we had no idea what to do. After some internet research we found our hostel was pretty close to this spot and off we went. Being late on said Sunday, we didn't have our hopes set to high, but after the 15 min walk to the place, we were gladly surprised!... More

What can be expected of a pool place? Dark place, a few (old) tables, a bar and hopefully some nice people. Your average pool place right? You come, you play, you leave. Reasonable time spent. Not PlanB. It is somewhat hard to find, hidden behind a small alley halfway down the Overtook but boy is worth visiting. It starts with... More

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.
