The Sensi is one of my favourite meeting points in Amsterdam with nice drinks, a chill space inside, and tables and chairs on the sidewalk outside in summertime.
Owned by Ben Dronker and the Sensi Seed Bank, they also run the Hash Hemp Marijuana Museum just steps away down the canal.
While they don't actually sell grass or hash, you're welcome to buy a drink (teas, coffee, soda, beer) and have a smoke of your own stuff while enjoying your stay. Good music, most of the time (it's up to the staff). You can also find great cannabis books, the legendary Sensi seeds and various pipes here.
Good place to meet your friends for those long conversations. All sorts of famous folks like the Cannabis Poet love to frequent this groovy place. You never know who'll show up.
Right on one of the most INTERESTING corners in the Dam, on the Oude Hoog Straat, just two blocks from the Dam Square in the heart of the Red Light District. On the corner of the Oudezijdes Achterburgwal. You can't miss it. Look for the Cannabis plants in the window.

Posted by peachy and baby on 2004-11-04 20:04:48 My Score: this was the BEST coffeeshop we went to. Thts it. Upstairs is so damn chilled out. When u go in check out the two doors on the right of you when u walk in. The light makes loads of spinny pictures on em. Me an my girl saw some scary shit an also a picture of Bob marley. No jokes! or was it just that white widdow?.....Cushions on the floor, buddha style furniture, best place ever. We chilled for hours. the service on the first night we went in was well nice, i thimnk she was scottish (again maybe the weed) BUT the second time we went in the loser woman behind the bar said we had to be 21 to get in and when we sed we didnt even get IDd the night before she shouted at us. Stressy bitch should chill out. Apart from that this place is well worth a visit.

I have recomeded this place to everyone I know!!!

Everybody knows its only courteous to buy weed from each coffee shop you visit which can be expensive and you can end up with too much(if there is such a thing). The staff are very friendly the music is always cool and you just have to experience chillin upstairs on the cushions, thats if you can get up the steep stairs after a good smoke! Definitely the coffee shop to keep visiting.

Posted by Neen on 2003-10-02 08:40:10 My Score: In my opinion, the best coffee shop I sampled during my trip to Amsterdam. Despite the fact that you can't actually buy weed here, the atmosphere is AMAZING. The upstairs of the cafe (if you can manage the incredibly steep stairs in your stoner haze) has large round low tables and cushions galore, making it a wonderful place to just chill out with your mates. The drinks are great here (I recommend hot chocomel to beat flagging energy levels) and the staff are friendly as they come. Definitely one to stop off at once you've visited the hemp museum, which is just a few doors down the road.
