Nieuwe Zijds, Amsterdam –
For over twenty years, the small but hip Barney’s Coffeeshop has offered a welcoming bohemian feel and remains a genuine staple of Amsterdam’s smoking culture.
The vintage wood trim and smiling sun logo invite patrons in, where they find a rustic tavern with a rather exotic décor featuring golden yellow walls with brick patches, smooth carvings and ornately-painted wooden tables, emerald and crimson counters, and a collection of souvenirs from Southeast Asia.
Customers slouch contentedly on wooden benches and chairs to take a breather from the busy streets, chill in an easygoing environment, and of course sample the high-quality marijuana.
Winner of many Cannabis Cups for its rare strain selections of weed and hash, Barney’s enjoys a solid reputation for offering reliable products in a sociable and open-minded atmosphere.
The coffeeshop’s philosophy and ambiance attracts a laid-back clientele of hippies, while the sometimes overworked staff is always friendly, approachable, and ready to offer suggestions.
Since its original concept as a coffeeshop and seed supplier, Barney’s has expanded into a diverse chain of establishments, most located on the same block and all worth an extended visit of their own.
Casual and open-minded local hippies, expats, and travelers, 20s to 30s+.
Relaxing tunes with smooth beats and bass.
None at Barney’s Coffeeshop, but Barney’s Uptown across the street offers a popular English breakfast as well as lunch and dinner menus.
Weed €12–€17/gram, hash €12/gram. Coffee €2, fruit juices €3.
Busiest from 10:30am to 2:30pm, then again from 6pm to close. For a mellower vibe, go between those times.
Barney’s Coffeeshop, Barney’s Uptown, and Barney’s Farm are all on the same block. Barney’s Uptown is a sleek bar and café with an extensive food and drink menu and DJ nights. Souvenirs and seeds are available at Barney’s Farm. Barney’s Lounge at Reguliersgracht 27 is a posh and modern coffeeshop.
