We enjoyed our trip to bulldog, the atmosphere was good and they served lots in there as well as food/drinks. Lots of memorabilia and history on the walls which looks cool. The staff aren’t that friendly but I wouldn’t say they were rude, to be...More

Seems like Hard Rock but with weed and a so so everything else. The bulldog who skateboards out front is adorable and a must see!

I went to visit the famous Bulldog coffee shop with high expectations, because everyone says it’s a cool place. In parts, yes, it is. But I got really disappointed when I arrived. The music was good, but the waiter was really rude when he said...More

I’ve been to the bulldog a few times over the years. As a solo traveller it’s a good spot to meet people because of how busy it is but that is the only pro here. That and the hot chocolate. The staff here are outrageously...More

Super chill vibe at the place where coffeeshops all began! Great weed, fair prices, and cool souvenir shop next-door. It is always packed so be prepared for that. Hard to find seating together for large groups.

Defiantly worth the visit even if your not into smoking it’s nice to just go for a drink as it has a good atmosphere. The food is nice here as well but if your not into smokey atmospheres then I wouldn’t recommend going.

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

It’s worth it! Space cake in Bulldog is actually ‘muffin-shaped’. I’d suggest to share one in two if you’re not used to it. The effect is not as immediate as what you get after smoking but it comes while digesting, so it... More
