Lifestyle - This is not your average "coffee shop". Coffeeshops are establishments in Holland where you can buy and smoke cannabis. This is tolerated by the Dutch authorities. Under the drug policy of the Netherlands, the sale of cannabis products in small quantities is allowed by 'licensed' coffee shops. The majority of these coffeeshops also serve drinks and food.
The dark, wooden interior of the 420 Café looks more like one of the city’s famous brown cafés than and typical Amsterdam coffee shop. While the 420 Cafe cannot serve alcohol anymore (according to the Dutch Coffeeshop Law) there is the usual selection of juices, coffees and teas on offer. The 420 Café is located on Oudebrugsteeg, a narrow street leading off the busy Damrak, which leads between Central Station and Dam Square.
