As Amsterdam as you can get...Cafe Nol.
One of the last authentic Jordaan cafes, Cafe Nol is home to the native beer culture of Amsterdam's working class Jordaan community (not to be confused with the trendoids who are moving in). Accordion-playing, drinking-song warbling regulars congregate here for a night of drinking and music - the music in question being the good old-fashioned Dutch 'oompah' style, a kind of let's-get-drunk chorus. On no account call these 'German beer songs' and be prepared to join in if you venture inside. The interior is a superb example of the now endangered Jordaan interior decor style - so kitsch, it's class.
Dress Code: Hard to describe. Can't go wrong with casual.
