Can someone help me identify this bar?

I'm almost positive this was on Spuistraat near the Tapa's place at 299. The inside had lights that looked like upside-down red umbrellas; they had a pretty nice selection of whiskey and scotch (very little bourbon); super compfy and interesting chairs, a DJ was playing, and... ? I hope these picture links work and are helpful

wow... super fast... thank you!

I'm pretty positive that's it... ceiling pictures on facebook look about right, and it seems like they pull the DJ booth for bands. Perfect; thanks again!

My wife and I always visit this bar when in Amsterdam, not always convinced the staff/locals like tourists but the atmosphere sums up Amsterdam to me, chilled, warm and unique!!

Amsterdam is a tourist Mecca, I can't think of anywhere in the center that doesn't welcome them with open arms.

I think if you don´t behave like a loud, drunken and perhaps snooty tourist you will be welcome everywhere.

Apologies did not mean to offend, I have been to Schuim many times and so obviously like it!! Do not behave loud / like a lout and def not snooty, so misunderstandings all around.

Going in February and will ensure I engage in friendly conversation with the staff!
