The blonde lady behind the bar wasnt in a good mood but overall i had a good high time. Most of the time is busy and packed.

Although I understand why, products seem to be of good quality, we had a really chilled, nice time and is centraal so we went inside while waiting for the coach back to ferry. Recommend

Well, just a short stroll down the street from my hotel I noticed this shop Bulldogs. It said coffee shop but as soon as I entered it was kind of obvious they sold more than coffee. Either they had a Mary Jane Scent dispenser or...More

I could say the place is cool (but it is too small). I could say the products are good (but in Amsterdam you can find way better products at Boerejongers, Hunters, The plug, anything outside of De Walen). I live here, I'm not a tourist....More

My partner recommended The Bulldog having visited before. It was a scorching hot day so I was ready for a beer in any case! Loved the place! Good atmosphere, friendly staff, and the beer and burgers were excellent, also loved the artwork on the walls,...More

Came here on our visit to Amsterdam, as part of one of our "Tourist" stop offs. Having heard people always mention the bulldog, and Amsterdam staple. We thought we'd stop in, buy a few of the pre-rolled joints and relax. (First off I understand the...More

My husband and I have been here a number of times. It’s a really friendly bar with great food and beer. We went on the Boat Trip for the first time recently and it was the highlight of our weekend. Perfect for lazy afternoons.

The Bulldog whilst iconic as Amsterdams first coffee shop, is highlighted even more so by the friendly staff, fantastic music, good atmosphere and good company. Highly recommend the malted banana milkshake - quite frankly out of the world - the best I have ever tasted...More

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
