We really enjoyed this busy place, knowledgeable staff, delicious bar snacks (sausage/cheese) we stayed for a couple of drinks and really enjoyed it. Not a beer drinker but my hubby is. One beer was 21% (yes 21%) alcohol (eek!) I recommend the osseworst sausage.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
