Don’t go in. The service is rude and charge you with €0.5 for going to the restroom. Choose another place but not this one. This has been the worst experience ever.

We found this place while getting out the rain and it was my fave bar in the red light district but not the cheapest. We drank here twice during our break and will defo call in for drink If in Amsterdam again.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
