Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
How to get there
  • Centraal Station • 2 min walk

Class pub with lovely decor. Pub is meant to be one of the oldest in the city and is decorated with loads of monkey stuff as apparently sailors used to go in hundreds of years ago and if they had no money would pay their tab with monkeys they had brought home from their travels. No idea if that's actually true but I'll choose to believe it.

Good selection of beers and the 2 guys serving were sound the two times we visited.

Been to this pub a few times over the years. Love the old decor. Excellent selection of beers and it's very chill which is nice after long walks around the busy streets.

The barman was very helpful during my visit & the beer was great. It's very small so can get a bit crowded but has a great atmosphere.

Stopped in for a quick beer in the oldest wooden bar still around. Great selection of beverages and a very eclectic decorative style. Thoroughly enjoyed our beers before setting out for the day.

This is one of the remaining wooden buildings in Amsterdam, also one of the oldest pubs. It definitely has an atmosphere with lot's of decoration. It has about 8 small tables, and it seems it is always full. the bartender was kind, the selection of beers and other drinks is good.

Be sure to ask about the history of the bar and why monkeys!!! The Palm beer was absolutely amazing, but beware, they aren't watered-down like beer in the USA. Three beers was sufficient for the afternoon. They had an amazing flavor also! The owner was there and he was really quite a nice guy. Be sure to get a look at the photo of the young girl on the wall also and get the story behind that. Bathrooms were spotless! Service was spectacular! Location was VERY difficult to find. We stood right in front of it for probably 30 seconds looking for it until we realized it was right there!

Most enjoyable glass of Monkey (awoken) beer. Quirky little bar with history of trading monkeys for beer when sailors frequented. Interesting vodka bottles similar to Bold gin
