 Coffeeshop Baba was one of the first hotspots in the Red Light District! Forced to move west, now new and improved.


 

 

A very lively coffeeshop located in the heart of the Red Light District. Lots of tables and big windows to watch the masses roll into the sex zone!

Warmoesstraat shop was closed but Baba has re-opened in the West, check out a link to the new shop here.

Favourite hangout of my Liverpool mate Moonjuice420, and I have to agree with him there..

Perfect setting on a Warmoesstraat corner. Looks huge from the outside, but the inside proves it to be smaller as one would expect. Nice Indian decor. Makes you feel you're on a cloud already.Marijuana menu: Good menu but average quality. Service & staff: The lady behind the counter should learn how to... Full details

Quite cramped when the place is busy, however.Marijuana menu: Not a huge selection, but decently-priced and in suitable quantities.Service & staff: Highly knowledgable woman behind the...

On an ending note, the bong I used in BaBa was my favourite piece of glass that I used

Although BaBa appears tacky whilst looking in from the outside, once seated the Indian theme grows upon you, and the large statue of Govinda (or Shiva?) is impressive. Tunes were hard house or (more to my taste) hard trance. Ultra-annoying Yank tourists.Marijuana menu: Nice, varied and cheap menu, surprising... Full details

Always too busy, I was surprised when we scored a window table our last visit.Marijuana menu: Last year we stocked up on superb hash brownies and grass muffins for a Klaus Schulze concert. March'02 gave... Full details
