Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

This is such a gem to visit. It’s just a stones through from one of the busiest areas in Amsterdam yet it think everyone just walks past, except those in the know! The actual venue is super cool and they do wonderful drinks and snacks. We like to gorge on the croquettes and bitteballen, this cafe has a special place in my heart.

Lovely traditional bar close to the city centre. Cosy atmosphere, the bar is enlighted with candles and you can have at your disposal board games to play. We strongly recommend to have a go with the Blind Pig Honey cider! Moreover,bar tenders are very cool

A lovely and long standing traditional cafe / bar amongst a slew of more touristy bars. Well worth the visit. Barman greets everyone coming in and tales orders from the table. Candles on the table give a cosy feel when it’s dark outside. Good range of local beers and European wine list at reasonable prices. Password protected free wifi available Retains its 1940s charm and feels like a “find” without being touristy

A real great bar with a lot of history. Service is excellent with a good number of draft beers and of course the well-known 'bitterballen'. Their agenda shows a new exhibition each month and on each thrid Sunday poetry.

Candlelit tables made this bar seem very cozy. Many of the patrons seemed to know each other or the bartender.

We found Cafe Eljlders simply by accident trying to avoid the football game that was being shown in almost every other bar and so pleased we did.

The four of us were made to feel so welcome by the barman and the Regulars and will definitely be going back next time we're Amsterdam.

We came early directed by lonely planet, just as they were opening about 4:30. The barman was alone and setting up, but quite happy for us to go on in.
As newcomers to dutch gin and beer we found him really helpful and pleasant.
This place is the real deal, not some tourist trap. Relax and enjoy the ww2 ambience, apparently artists who hated the occupation met here.
Don't expect to be waited on hand and foot, this is a locals pub. The prices reflect this too and the range is good.
The food is limited to simple bar food, but that is perfect for a pub.
I personally love this place for the authenticity of the experience, but you get out what you put in- engage with the staff and locals for the best experience.
