A great place to have a nice drink with friends and it's nearby Central Station! Cool bartenders and 'gezellige' Dutch people! A great place to go to if you'd fancy a good time in the centre of Amsterdam.

Stumbled on this little bar whilst strolling through Amsterdam. Very friendly staff and we (group of 5 friends) didn't want to leave. Particularly enjoyed their beer selection. I will be back

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
