    One of my favourite bars in Amsterdam! Super chilled. There is cheap drinks; an arcade & pinball machine as well as a foosball & pool table. Large capacity and a fantastic back-terrace with a view.

    They have a delicious berry jenever which is good if you don't normally like jenever. Pay with pin and they need to take out an additional €20 (which you get back in cash).

    Small but cozy punk bar. The drinks are respectively cheap and the atmosphere is always good. Includes a big terrace, pool table and pinball machines. Helpful and friendly staff.

    This place has some of the cheapest drinks in town, and the crowd is chatty and outgoing. The best spot to kick back is outside on the terrace. Read more

    Punk/metal crowd that can be slightly more aggressive than the crowd at The Minds. Awesome patio in the summertime.

    Unrelated to Black Hole Sun. Star Trek TNG pinball is a classic and not to be missed. Great brass tacks bartender.

    Poser rock bar full of "xpats" aka people too lazy to learn Dutch, aka long term sex tourists. Ended up here with a misguided group but didn't stay long. Gross.
