This place has an impressive beer and jenever selection and staff that know what they're on about and make good recommendations to visitors based on what thing you like. Reasonable price. Very humorous and friendly bar man. Lovely good sized pub on the canal.

Stopped here for a pre-dinner beer, vast selection to choose from and it was nice to sit next to the canal. Waiter was very helpful in choosing a beer for my fiancée. Rose beer for the ladies!

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

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
