    Talking Only 1 rule to coffee shops in the 'Dam.. Avoid the Bulldogs!

    Everything about the British Bulldog coffee shops is every kind of wrong.. Avoid at all costs, try the Greenhouse or Barney's... Once of my favourites for price was The Doors, but it's changed its name now, not sure what to, it's the Singel Canal.

    What do you lot think?

    I've done the Dam 12 times now, going again in March.. I stay at Kuwadro, best bnb in the Dam.

    I've been once, it's all a bit blurry to say the least.
    Let's just say we hit it hard for 3 days solid, back in those days me and my pals were absolute fruit cakes lol.
    Total lightweight now lol

    The Bulldog's are just, 'must go' places for the uninformed.... there are many better (much better!) places

    I havent been to the damn since 2007 but there was a place called the Grey Zone up there. It was a bit off the beaten path, but had some great dope (called sour cream) and it was owned by some americans that set up a shop out there, and actually smoked blunts! hahah

    Is that Grey Area Skunky? Still ran by Americans and arguably the best dope in the Dam! Little packed out place with nowhere to sit other than the window. Dollar bills all over the wall.

    Ya that would be it!!!! It was a cool shop tho, and they sold the standard American 1/8 oz bags, which was nice as opposed to getting knocked over the head buying it by the gram. The bulldogs aren't a bad place for people who haven't been to Amsterdam or even Europe for that matter, and just looking for a place to smoke something. However, with just a few moments of research and asking around you learn there is some bad ass shops out there, well above the quality AND price of the hopper or bulldogs. Its been over 10 years now since I have seen the city, I am thinking I am due for another adventure out there soon.

    The closer to the dam rack and red light district you are the more you getting ripped of, the likes of bulldog grass hopper are for tourists and you get your eyes took out. Do a bit exploring you will find nice little coffee shops what the locals use nearly half the price as the commercial shops.

    Anybody use the Amsterdam coffeeshop map?
    Won’t link it here, but it’s pretty decent, gets updated fairly regular, n has the coffeshop menus and reviews.

    Always found the C.S round voldle Park the easiest easygoing chilled places, more local trade rather than the typical tourist trap of central.

    My fave was C.S. reefer, a dinky hole, but they sold lovely organic bud for 4euro a gram, just watch the stairs when coming in or leaving, I swear they move, bonus was its right next to waterlooplein where the tinkers market is, great for a wee stroll around looking at the bric a brac n nic nacks.

    C.S. goa has to be the worst imo. 3times ive been n the buds made me super paranoid queasy n sludgy, found out that they harvest wayyyyy to early, pure cash whores according to my Amsterdam insider.

    Greenhouse lounge (best of the gh chain) barneys , Popeyes, dampkring n Picasso’s on haarlemstratt are ace places to call in n have a coffee, smoothies in dampkring


    If youse get the chance hit the de pijp area, its more local less busy n you can actually have a chat with the staff, blue sea for a bitta sticky then greenhouse, walk round to the park n skin up.
    skin it roll it lick it twist it.
