I have been to Amsterdam and I checked out some great cafe’s there like Trinity, Hunter’s Café, DampKring. Dampkring is my favorite, its a beautiful cafe with good drinks, comfortable couches, orange painted walls and friendly staff. A cat is also sitting there in the window to welcome you.

  • I had a lovely afternoon in the Cafe Thijssen in Amsterdam – a lovely, chilled-out cafe on Brouwersgracht with good food and drink, friendly staff, board games etc. Cosy in the winter and a great place to sit out in the summertime. Moeders restaurant is quite fun too.

  • My favourite bar/club in Amsterdam is De Nieuwe Anita http://www.denieuweanita.nl, in the west of the city. It looks like someone’s cosy living room, has various different themed club nights at the weekends (you’re unlikely to find any stags there!), a variety of good live bands on different nights of the week, as well as film showings and unpretentious literary events. It’s welcoming, friendly and really fun.

    there was also a hostel from Europe’s Famous Hostels in Rotterdam which was cool if you’re planning on going there!

    Hope this helps!
