Good thread SR.

Worth pinning this for a while as our definitive guide to Amsterdam.

My first stop is usually Barney's then on to the Homegrown Fantasy. Most nights spent in the Bluebird.

Haarlem is a must for a day out.

My advice would be to stay out of the centre, to many tourists!!

Mellow Yellow (near the leidesplein), Grey area (bit small for my liking), Bluebird and Homegrown Fantasy are all friendly, comfortable places. Homegrown Fantasy usually has the best music (IMO)

Mein Gott

It depends with me what time i hit town !! (i stay in a buds place 10 mins outta dam by tram)

If its Early then Barneys or Abraxas.. (depends which stop we get off)

If its Later Rokerij 2 or Greenhouse (Centrum)

THe Next time u go visit The NooN (not far from Leidsplien) Home of the BLUEBERRY and WOW its just WOW :) :)

PS

As JC said, Haarlem (An easy train journey from Dam) The Quality of MJ here is the Cannines Testicles, especially T' Teehuis Smedestraat 25 and Willie Wortel's Sativa (Frans Hals) Kruisweg 46, go see u will love Haarlem .. and if u go on market day (in the main square) have some of the mega munchies on offer .. :) mmmmmmmmmmmmm got to plan another visit !!

hi twai,

i used to like the greenhouse, but then they put a fcuking turnstyle in,why?

the tiolet's good,but it aint worth queing for!!!!!!!

homegrown fantasy do the best tasting space vanilla sponge cake,literaly out of this world...the feash orange was nice but tripped a bit at the geeza behind the bar he was a bit"jagger-esk" :)

when i first went i spent most me time in cafe's,

as time changes,so do your choices, as with growing it's a learning curve.....

and shit, do we learn.....i spend the days in growing shops,asking and looking

then on the nights it's cafe's & window shopping.......asking and looking.

agree totally, about getting to haarlem,infact try anywhere different -den haag,utrecht,rotterdam and breda,there might not be many there but there worth seeking out and it doesn't take long by lovelly dutch"on time"trains.

if a 420 meeting is everheld overthere,

can i put me name down,

cheers

sittingrelaxing

hi twai, im sure it was greenhouse, your picture is the one i liked(hang on)

.......i was last there in august 2002,did the toilets av oyster shells on the ceilling and tiny mirrors on the walls?

through the turnstyles is a "chilled bit" i just didn't like it.

i hope it's another greenhouse as i like the one in your picture-(nice ak-47 to take back to the hotel) i'll try and find my stuff from last visit.

always get more done with a driver.

sorry to hear you was left to yourself (420 wise),how many was there going?

and who ever let you down, you should feel bad,

what's the world coming too??????????

Guys its the Greenhouse at Waterlooplein not the Centrum one, think it is called Nastre. I agree the place is nice but the turnstyle is a bit out of keeping with the rest of the decor and is a bit of a pain in the arse.

Ahhhhhh the sweet memories...

Sitting in Abraxas watching some bloke make a huge spliff of white widow. Taking a toke and then wondering out to leave it for someone else :D

A day at the Noon, smoking Red Bud, BubbleGum and Blueberry. Building candle pyres until near sundown..

Going to the Dampkring, shortly after landing, he takes a toke and Jenoli white's out on the pavement.

Back to "that man's" place, and 4 bongs later watching the celing Flloooowww with the celing Fan.

Ahhhhh Now that was FUN :D
