de Dampkring has long been serving up a large selection of weed and hash. Previously a cafe coffeeshop with alcohol served, and made famous when a scene from the movie Oceans 12 with Brad Pitt and George Clooney was shot there.

Here's what they have to say about themselves:

The Original Dampkring

Dampkring Amsterdam is situated in the Handboogstraat 29 in Amsterdam, not far from the famous Amsterdam Flower market. Relax in this beautiful area of Amsterdam and enjoy a coffee and a smoke at the Dampkring. A high quality selection on the menu and a friendly atmosphere make all feel welcome, tourists and locals a like.

One of the nicest shops in town

The original Dampkring certainly is one of the nicest shops to visit in the center of town. The shop has a welcoming feel to it, it's warm toned wooden interior and lack of that "overly" important multi-media shit happening in most boots, makes for a very likeable place to visit. The menu is well... Full details

Exciting

I dont know how to describe the Dampkring better than using the term "exciting". First of all, it looks really cool, not only from the inside but also from the outside. It is a known "secret" that the second Ocean movie (Oceans 12) was shot here in a scene with George Cloones & Brad... Full details

Come for the Cannabis stay for the stoned cat

This is a must stop! The atmosphere is always electric. Usually you will see some type of tour group taking pictures in front of the de Dampkring. Either because of the historic history of the building, fans of Ocean's 12, or the high grade cannabis this is an amazing place. Dont forget to pet the Dampkring... Full details

Another big name coffeeshop

Dampkring is one of the most famous coffeeshops in Amsterdam. I'm happy to say it doesn't dissappoint - the place looks really nice, kind of an old bar feel but more trendy. The menu is pretty good and the staff are always helpful. Full details

The only real constructive criticism i have for this shop involves their participation in the scene from Oceans 12

This shop was very chill with people just sitting quietly and enjoying their various products.
