Coffeeshop Central, Amsterdam

3.3
#137 of 291 in Nightlife in Amsterdam
Coffeeshop Amsterdam is located on the famous Haarlemmerstraat. Often referred to as the coffeeshop mile. Here you will find many of Hollands world famous coffeeshops.

The dampkring was founded in 1993 by Jeroen and Paul; dampkring quickly gained international fame when the American blockbuster Ocean’s Twelve was filmed inside the coffeeshop.

Jeroen and Paul are also the founders of one of the oldest coffeeshops of Amsterdam: Tweede Kamer Coffeeshop at Heisteeg 6 in Amsterdam. Tweede Kamer is a small coffeeshop in the city centre with mostly local visitors. Coffeeshop Tweede Kamer is well known throughout the Netherlands.

Jeroen left the business in 2001. Paul opened a second dampkring in 2007 on the location of Haarlemmerstraat. In 2011 he sold both of the dampkring’s. In 2016 Paul returned as co-owner again of the dampkring Haarlemmerstraat 44. To end the confusion between two dampkring coffeeshops, it was decided in August 2017 to add an extra name for the Haarlemmerstraat.

  • This place was recommended by a server at a bar, not far away. It's purchase only, and a very small space. When I said I wanted a "joint", I was asked if I wanted cannabis mixed with tobacco or plain. I chose plain and that joint lasted me 5 days. Really good week!
  • Serves it's purpose perfectly. Great place to stop in and grab a bit of weed, especially if you're just passing through Centraal as it's literally right next to the station. Good prices, fast service, and reasonable quality stuff.
