Attraction details
Owner description: Plan B is the place to be, so they say, to shoot some pool on one of our 13 full size tables, watch sports on our big screens (yes, we have all the channels), either near the bar or in the luxurious smoking room, play some boardgames, or just hang out and have a few pints. You're more than welcome, whatever your plans are....

This isn't just your run of the mill poolhall, this is more of an experience if not anything else. Tucked away at the end of an alley of the main street called "Overtoom" in Amsterdam you might think that it's going to be a seedy place, filled with all kinds of hustlers and cutthroats and you'd be right. Worn out tables and poolsticks bent in every direction but straight. Bartenders who would spit in your beer to water it down. That's what the place looked like when it was used as a locale for a narcotics trafficking gang in a cops series, earning the place television fame.

Of course the place looks brilliant, the staff is excellent and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Come on over if you want to play a game of pool on every imaginable level. Or just have a drink of whatever's your poison at the bar. Or play some darts, or one of the boardgames, or..., or...., kind of anything really.

Forget the windmills, the tulips, the red light district, smoking a blunt, spliff, doobie. If you want that mindaltering, lifechanging experience when visiting Amsterdam, get your butt down to Plan B!

By far the best poolhall in Amsterdam. Love the vibe, good tables and very friendly staff.
Also good place to drink some beers at the start of your evening.

Really nice place, really nice staff! They have four different beers on the taps and a large selection of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
This is definitely my favorite spot in Amsterdam!

This pool hall is simply the best in my opinion. Excellent pool tables, professional staff, laid-back atmosphere and beautiful decor. One can feel the effort and love that the owners have put into this place. If you don't like playing pool (who doesn't?) you can join the pub quiz every wednesday evening (fun!), or just have a drink.
The guests are a mix of different cultures and ages: a beautiful reflection of the inhabitants of Amsterdam. Furthermore, you may suddenly be standing next to pool champions who are (inter)nationally known! But what appeals to me most is the atmosphere. Just see it for yourself. The tram (nr. 1) stops nearby, you can take the bike, or just walk (+/- 10 min from the Leidseplein).
