When the previous owners hung up their pinnies in the '80s after 40 years behind the bar, they sealed up their café, retired upstairs and eventually passed away. Twenty years later, the new owners reopened this ghost bar just as they found it; furniture, photos, billiard room and all. The old-fashioned atmosphere is enhanced by background jazz.

This place is perfect. Good beer, wonderful old world atmosphere, comfy chairs, friendly staff. This is the kind of place that makes Amsterdam special. Not to be missed. GooglePlace - June 2017

Terrace (mostly standing) with a lot of sun in the summer time. Reasonable selection of beers, mixed crowd. Lot of business people gather up for after work drinks on Thursdays and Fridays. Big smoking room inside so if you're not in to that don't visit this place. Toilets are messy. But most important thing: place is original. As in really: nothing was done to the decor for the last 30 or 40 years minimum. Typical Dutch brown cafe! Very cool. GooglePlace - June 2016
