Visitors to this ‘city of sin’ often forget that there are certain rules and etiquette that they should stick to, for example, most coffee shops and cafes aren’t allowed to serve alcohol, but a number of coffee shops have a bar next door or round the corner where you can definitely smoke weed. Here are a few of our favorites…

With a great view of the canal and right across from Centraal Station, Batavia is a great place to chill with some buddies, a few beers and a couple of joints. Grab an English breakfast and chill, looking out at the great view.

The Winston

This nightclub sells alcohol rather than weed, but allows patrons to light up while lounging on the patio or playing pool. It’s surrounded by several of Amsterdam’s famous coffee shops and is conveniently located in the heart of the red light district.

The Bulldog Café

The Bulldog Café is another one of the few Amsterdam coffee shops allowed to sell alcohol, and to compliment the full bar and herb, it’s equipped with a full kitchen – it doesn’t get much better than that! Conveniently located in the red light district, it’s definitely worth checking out.
