Niche bar: I love this bar, been here twice in last 6 months. The staff is so friendly, feels like an old neighborhood English bar, I am so sold out on this one.

Lovely little bar. Popped in for a Gluwein on a cold day in Amsterdam. Service was lovely, drink was great and prices were good. Worth popping in for a quick one if passing.

Despite its size this Pub has a great atmosphere and was packed each time we went in. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It probably has the most original WiFi code ever, just ask the Bar Staff.

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
