Best place to visit in Amsterdam if you want to hear a load of Brits screaming ‘Come On Eileen’ amongst many other great British classics. At 2pm. On a Thursday. But who doesn’t want that?

Perfect view of all the tourists walking by and the pub is Always busy. If you wanna sit down and escape the crowded Streets of the redlight district go to this place for a cold beer.

We visited Amsterdam beginning of December 2017 for a friends birthday, we went to this bar on a few occasions, the staff are very friendly and the location is great, right on the corner overlooking the canal, great for people watching.

The Old Sailor feels like a traditional pub in the UK, with ample bar, seating and standing room. Add its Red Light District location, which is often high on a visitor's must-see list anyway, and its nautical decorations and unabashed Popeye knockoff theme, and you...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
