I've been here mostly through the week because I know the weekends can be quite busy, but it's a perfect place to have a drink.

Good place for cosy drinks before going to a club. There were lots of small groups enjoying the Saturday night, mostly locals. Beers about 2-3€ and cocktails 7-10€. Friendly staff :)

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
