The area

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.

A mix of mostly locals with very few tourists. The bartenders have a lot of fun and the DJ spins great music. Mostly people in their early 20's. DJ plays a mix of US and Netherlands music. If you are not local it will be stepping out of your comfort zone.

I came here on my first proper night out in Amsterdam and this delightful little place didn't disappoint. It was free entry, which is always a bonus, and they played a variety of music including well-known chart music along with some traditional Dutch songs. My only complaint would be that I had to pay 50 cents for the toilet - despicable.

I am a Black woman from the USA and I've never experienced such overt racism as I did at Cafe Bubbels. I didn't expect it in the Netherlands as all the reviews have mentioned how tolerant the country is toward people of color. My friend and I were attempting to enter Cafe Bubbels when the security guard wouldn't let us in. That was fine with me since I don't want to stay someplace where I'm not welcome. Well my friend who wasn't very drunk btw-spoke to him and I turned around, all of a sudden he pushes both of us out of line. This was a blatant physical assault on two women who were half his size. I was in utter shock. A black security guard walked with us and told us that this happened sin Amsterdam. People try to pretend racism doesn't exist but in 2016, I've experienced it firsthand.

Attempted to visit this place because we had Amsterdam Life Tickets (which we've used for a few days at other establishments) however the doorman refused entry due to my turban. He said we can't have anything on our heads (friend had a baseball cap on) because they had complaints before and is now their policy. This is where I couldn't help but chuckle and ask if he was serious - he actually couldn't even say turban. For such a world renowned city for it's diversity this was simply unacceptable and extremely disheartening. I am still in disbelief that this is a 'policy'.

Dangerous pub, you can easily be robbed here and the bouncers will kick you out if you report this, I think they are part of this business. The owner himself doesn't do it because he is also a big criminal. Stay away from here!
