  • twilight zone: I can't believe nobody tells about this

    the twilight zone is a little and very confortable coffee shop.Somebody wouldn't enter because there are a lot of coffees that seem to be better than this.But,listen to me: if your idea is to smoke the best hash joints at the lowest prices you must absolutely get in it.
    I suggest you to try Tibisla(it's a special cream that gives you the idea about having smoked *** till yesterday,the price is 7 euros per gram,less than the not so good creams you can find in shops like Baba,Bulldog,grasshopper,la canna.)There's also a pretty girl working there:so listen to me and go to the twilight zone!

    Dress Code: it's a coffee,not a marriage

    Address: in the red light district

    A whole new business and nightlive center has arisen near the Amsterdam ArenA. Here you'll find the Heineken Music Hall, a venue for music concerts. There is also a large cinema, Pathe. The only disadvantage of this location is that it is not that safe at night.

    Amsterdam is to be savored at...

    Amsterdam is to be savored at night.
    My favorite coffee bars: Baba, Bulldog and the Rocket Cafe
    I loved Baba because of the elephant motif. It was also very comfy, with couches and low tables.

    Bulldog--I know this is the most famous place, and yet it is still damn *cozy*. I love how people engrave their names and such into the wood (see photo). This place is an institution!

    Rocket--I have no idea how to tell you to get there. But find it. The 'bartender' (or whatever you call him) was this very friendly Jamaican guy who was very accomodating :)

    Let me also say, the coffee in these places is damn good too.

    Dress Code: ANYTHING!!

    This is not a fine-dining experience and *be glad*.

    Directions: All of the above is easy to find in the Redlight District. There are maps that outline the locations of places like the Bulldog, so find em!

    Various: The coffeeshops

    You can't get the full Amsterdam experience without going to a coffeeshop. The atmosphere alone is unique, find a nice quiet one to chill out in, you will probably find the bartender speaks excellent English and is very laid back and helpful.
