Friendly, alternative people, friendly bar staff, and very cheap booze, which is a rarity for a tourist to find in Amsterdam. Good mix of locals, expats and some lost tourists

I've been many times. I live in Astoria (Queens,NYC) and have a friend who lived in AMS for years. De Buurvrouw is my favorite late night hang out. I can always trust that when I'm drunk and done with the pleasures of De Wallen that this bar is ready and waiting for me to end the evening with hard-drinkin' locals.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
