After spending many years as a typical Dutch brown bar on the Rozengracht, Bar Struik was transformed by its owner Remco, with the help of his uber-cool friends, from a staid old tavern into a sleek hangout for a sociable young crowd.

The simple, urban vibe is punctuated by the colorful graffiti that spells out the bar’s name on the red brick wall, while the street art exhibit, which includes everything from skateboard deck creations to stenciling on canvas, changes every three months and features designs by some of the best alternative artists in Amsterdam.

The sofas on the top level provide a funky atmosphere where the chatty clientele of designers, skaters, artists, and other creative types can spend comfy, cool evenings with friends listening to the soul, jazz, and afro beats offered by the DJs.

I don't go to Struik as much as I used to, but if I lived closer to the Jordaan and west side of Amsterdam I'd check it out more. It's a good stop if you're puttering around Anne Frank Huis and Westerkerk and want a reliable local's place too take a breather. I like to go there for the hip hop street art vibe, though I can't say that's the main vibe I get every time I go there. I think it doesn't really try to be more than it already is, which is just a brown bar with a little touch of identity, and I like that about it. I usually go on my way to Soundgarden, and it's usually overflowing.
