De Tweede Kamer or second living room , first opened it’s doors in 1985 , to swiftly become one of Amsterdam’s household names within the smoking community ! Being among the oldest shops in the city , there is not one Amsterdam smoker that hasn’t heard of , or visited this picturesque shop ! Tweede Kamer is still run by it’s original owner and has an incredibly knowledgeable staff of whom , some of them , work there for almost a quarter of a century ! Famous for their top quality imported and local Hashish and giant choice of highest grade Marihuana strains , De Tweede Kamer is , already for over 30 years , somewhat of Amsterdam’s best kept secrets . If you like to be where the locals are at …. This is the place to be ! Just off of Spui Square , opposite to the side entrance of Cafe Hoppe {one of the oldest cafe’s in the city since 1651!} it is a tiny shop that seats only 20 people , and makes it almost impossible not to engage with the locals . The dealers are all trained Barrista’s and serve a mean cup that you can enjoy together with a lovely peace of their “special” cakes or muffins ! This is probably the most mature shop in Amsterdam ! For musical choice , product knowledge , clientele , hospitallity and the lovely refurbished interior in 20’s apothecary style !

Very bad service, the older guy behind the counter was really unpolite and rude without any reasons, doing embarrassing jokes. I'll never go again , even though I was going quite often

Very nice local traditional cozy coffeeshop. The only place in Amsterdam with rifmanhash, my personal favorite from Marocco! Good atmosphere, nice staff and coviniant. This place has the authentic Amsterdam vibe, located near Spui plein. Drop in some time if you pass by!

one of this old school and cosy coffeeshops with mellow atmosphere located in the heart of Amsterdam. opened since 1985 little, wood-paneled shop with nice music, laidback and friendly staff, wide range of decent hashish and also good selection of weed. great coffee as well.

The guy behind the bar was sort of rude. I don't know why either. We didn't stay, he didn't make us feel very welcome.

Had a neat espresso as I sat waiting to meet someone. It was around 9:30am during a week day, and it was a great cup to kickstart my morning and adventure around that area of Amsterdam!

In intimate, wood panelled coffeehouse with a vast selection and detailed description of the product. You also have the option of buying a rolled single joint rather than bulk if you just want to try the experience and have little savvy to roll your own. Just any other restaurant, be respectful and remove your hat or headgear.

Older clientele, mature staff so if you want to partake but don't want to hang out with millennials this is a good place. Space cakes were "mild" only about a half gram in a pretty big piece of cake. Hash joints available, and a few different strains of pure weed joints as well.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
