Great place to visit some bars, eat some food and generally get lost wandering around. Unlike in the 90's when the area was full of drug dealers, now it is safe and a perfect spot to have a mooch about.

One of the oldest streets of the city, Zeedijk has a rough charm. At one end are chinese restaurants & food stores. At the other (nearer to Central station) are two very old jenever tasting houses. Enjoy !

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

To my understanding, a lot of restaurants would still open at night until 10:30-11:00pm. However, I don't think the restaurants would so early on Sunday morning.
