Amnesia

This is a very pleasant Coffeeshop on the Herengracht with outdoor seating. It’s one of the few places in town that specializes in organically grown weed. I enjoyed the comfortable interior with nice cushions and pillows, hand painted tables by Zoe, and mellow music that set the mood.
Update: I visited the Amnesia again for one of their Vaporizer Parties. It was packed full of happy people toking up the clean vapors from two vaporizers kept going thanks to the Amnesia and the hard-working, knowledgeable folks from the Cannabis College.
The party was livened up by a guy outside playing the saw. Yes, the saw. It sounded real eerie, like a theramin or a sci-fi soundtrack. Inside a DJ was spinning mellow house music while a very good trumpet player was layin’ down some Miles Davis’ riffs which really made that house music fly with the jazz adding the needed melody.
Amnesia was also featuring it’s new fountain style drinks, the EXACT same kind we used to get back in the ol’ soda fountain daze in New York. We’re talkin’ da kine milkshakes, ice cream sodas, vanilla cokes, lime rickeys, malteds (I couldn’t resist a chocolate malt that took me waaay back), and most unusual for Amsterdam, the famous NYC egg cream!
What more could you want for the raving munchies, but a cool fountain drink to set it right. The fountain drinks alone will make me a regular there.
Smokewise the Amnesia has a good selection of organically grown pot including Bio Sage and Amnesia Haze. But the most impressive smoke I tried there was the King Hassan Supreme hashish (fresh, with an incredibly good taste), at 11 Euros a gram and their Ice-o-lator hash (18 Euros a gram – the most expensive smoke in the house). Skip the Manali (tastes like crap).
So sit back, have a great drink, a good smoke, and dig the music at the Amnesia!

  • This is just *the* place to hang out, be it absolute beginner or ganja guru. Superfriendly service, cool atmosphere, great stuff to start up your mental engines for a pleasant ride… cheers to Mr Korrekt! I’ll be back… 😉

  • I visited in June of 2001 and Klaas, the weedkeep, was one of the highlights of my trip. Amnesia is a very comfortable place to spend an hour or two weeks. A trip to amsterdam must include dropping in to this little treasure.

  • Went there i think..cant remember..

  • Friendly helpful staff. Hell, when I asked him about his isolator hash he pulled it from the drawer and burned a peice off the side of it for me to try!!! That alone earns a 10 in my book. One of my favorites.

  • I read about this in the lost in amsterdam book and I must say it was by far the best shop in town. Everything was great and the staff new everything

  • Get to central station and face it on Damrak Walk 2 to 3 streets left make another left on Herengracht and the number is 133 on your left Good Luck and Don’t forget to Get smoked!

  • Can´t help myself from giving so high rates but I´ve been there twice and Amnesia was the best experience (..oops forgot the red light district ;)).

  • nniccce!!!!!

  • Very cool little place that most tourists don’t know about. Overlooking a canal, it has fantastic
    views. Decent smoke (although I forgot what I bought). The kid behind the counter was
    real cool. He pulled out a huge hooka for our hash. Nice gesture! We kicked back, ate a
    few shrooms, drank great coffee, listened to some good music in the back and next thing
    you know three hours went by! I always visit there everytime I go.

  • Sweet smoke some really expensive but nice hash,
    lovely leather couch pinball, excellent for those easy sundays

  • I think this was my all around favorite for my first trip to a’dam. we met the owner our first time there,a very friendly and attractive woman who recommended the carmella hash….moreof a grasssmoker,personally,but that shit kicked my ass!

    always lotsof cute chicks hanging out too!

  • i think this was the best of the few that i visited. great smoke, the lavender found me blasted, and a very comfortable atmosphere. best probably around noonish

  • After reading all the positive reviews on Amnesia, my friends and I decided to make this one of our stops on our tour de dope. We were all extremly satisfied although the pot was of the same quality as found in other shops. Not to take anything away from the pot there, all the grass is high caliber. I throughlly enjoyed the hash, I mixed it with a camel light and rolled it with a filter (a custom I picked up there). The music was excellent and the help was very friendly.

  • I highly recommend this jewel of a coffeshop. It’s comfortable, with a friendly staff, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. It attracts some good conversationalists as well.

  • hey!! I love weed and this coffeeshop was cool. I am from the U.S. and i wish i lived in amsterdam. This place rocked!!!

  • IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE, THIS IS THE ONE. THE ULTIMATE “CHEERS” BAR OF AMSTERDAM. HELLO TO S,G, Z, AND C-M-IN C. WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO KICK BACK AFTER TRAVEL. PERSONABLE, INFORMATIVE OWNER WHO HAS PATIENCE WITH FIRST-TIMERS. HAVING A COPY OF THE HIP TRAVEL GUIDE TO AMSTERDAM DIDN’T HURT EITHER. CANAL ENTRANCE, COMFY PILLOWS, AIRY, COLORFUL DECOR. FIRST CLASS ESTABLISHMENT WITH A VOYEUR’S VIEW OF “LADIES WHO LUNCH”. BRAVO TO A GUTSY BROAD WHO MAKES A RUN WITH THE BIG BOYS. YOU GO, GIRL. WE’LL BE BACK.

  • Was there in ’01 and ’04 and it just is so relaxed off the beaten path and just a joy to go in to get out of the cold. They have a volcano vaporizer and um I forget HaHA.

  • 6/19/03 Amnesia was recommended to us by thseeds. Weed is organically grown and very tasty. Serge was very knowledgeable of his wares. I am in a pain management program, (bad knee) Serge was very helpful in picking and choosing from the menu as per my condition. Serge knees were injured years ago, so he could relate. A1 service, atmosphere, and beverages. Until next time, KB. P.S. Take care Serge from your American friends.

  • Great place. Beautiful location. Wonderful help. Great heady nugs. Limited seating. Overall one of my top 3 places. Will always venture back

  • Amnesia has become my favorite coffeeshop in Amsterdam because of the very friendly and personal service of Serge…Mr, Korrekt you are the best!!!greetings from Berlin…
