Party Earth Bluebird Review

The Scene

It's easy to get lost in the details at Bluebird, a cool coffeeshop whose mesmerizing jungle theme is rife with lush murals of rain forests and a plethora of leafy green plants.

It’s easy to get lost in the details at Bluebird, a cool coffeeshop whose mesmerizing jungle theme is rife with lush murals of rain forests and a plethora of leafy green plants.

The whole setting calls to mind a sort of tree house bungalow, with swirls of tropical reds, blues, and greens contributing to the soothing vibe.

What separates this coffeeshop from others is its reputation for selling great hash, and the young, international staff will happily answer any questions and provide sample catalogs for inspection.

Browsing the “Plant of the Gods” and “Book of Dreams” menus gives a good idea of the types, amounts, and prices of the products available, while an easy-to-read chart printed on the back of the menus offers more information about what to expect from each selection.

Not surprisingly, the vibe is laid back and welcoming to both regulars and visitors, so patrons should stop in at the coffee bar for a quieter daytime scene or join the other customers in the evenings for a snack and light conversation.

Tip from Jonah:

The staff is happy to offer insight if you want to learn more about the coffeeshop culture. Order a coffee verkeerd, the house specialty, then just sink into the leather couch and relax. The best view is upstairs by the open windows.

not good

There is not much special about coffeeshops in Amsterdam. Everyone was hyping the coffeeshops up before I came, was really looking forward to legalized marijuana coz its considered a class B drug in the UK and this is stupid. I was directed here from my hostel but I have smoked better joints in better surroundings. The designs on the wall are ok to look at but not enough to make this a place I would tell people to go to. I don’t smoke much so I’m not complaining about the bud quality but there must be better places to go in Amsterdam.
One of the first joints I ever had in the city was here.

I loved the decor of the place, and the different rooms, I smoked one of my first joints here, and you can always have an emotional attachment to the first places you visit. I prefer to buy smaller amounts of weed though, and you can only buy pre packaged stuff at a set price. I prefer when you can buy like 3 euroes worth of weed. It has a friendly atmosphere, but it was a little too young for me. I prefer the quiet cosy coffee shops. It is in one the best places in Amsterdam, Waterlooplein. So you can start your day with a joint and then walk around the treasures that you can find at the market place just opposite. I remember feeling it could be my local coffee shop when I first went there, but there are different ones that suit your tastes. Although it was a nice place and worth a visit, I rarely go there anymore.
Watch out for bud quality

I'm a little torn between loving or hating this place. I used to like it a lot, and it was one of the spots I'd take my friends passing through for the coffeeshop experience because the look upstairs was groovy and it had a good view. Plus they have these two notebooks showing all the different bud and whatnot. But then this summer I took a tour around the Cannabis College and they had basically blacklisted the place, saying they sold weed that was stale shake, or had some crappy chemicals in it or something. I still give Bluebird the benefit of the doubt and hope they cleaned up their act by now, but I don't go there for a joint anymore.
