I love dive bars. In this case in Amsterdam it's a brown bar. It's got lots of character. Cheap beer and pub food are also available. They're also dog friendly.

It was ok. Nothing special. It had zero atmosphere and the staff did nothing to make us feel welcome. Located in centrum is easy to find but in my opinion there are so many better places to go and have a drink with better vibes

We stopped in for lunch, expecting an pub-style experience. Not so. The only waiter was also cooking. He was consistently unfriendly to all who stopped in, acting as if he didn't want us there. Food was just okay and the place wasn't very clean. We...More

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
