We stopped in here a few different nights during our trip and had no complaints. Good music, good location and very friendly staff (Sebastion was great with giving local advice and info). Definitely a place to stop and have a drink.

Had a great time yesterday evening. Chilling out and chatting to Sebastian who was telling us all about Amsterdam and helped us with where to eat and go. We came back in for another drink before we went home. Thank you Sebastian!
