Rookies is one of Amsterdam's classic coffeeshops located in the Leidseplein area.

Rookies, the bar where everybody knows your name! Haha, this Cheers styled bar USED to sell alcohol but now they just serve up good weed. Nice terrace, HUGE smoke room with loads of seats and games to keep you entertained.

Since nomore alcohol, it is a bit odd cos it still feels like a bar!  Overall the menu is good for the price and I like the way the... Full details

A must sit down and smoke, have a game of backgammon, kind of coffeeshop

A very nice place with a big smoking area, so there's always a seat for you.Marijuana menu: This was actually the best weed I tasted in A.dam, so if you just happen to walk by the place go get yourself a gram of Cheese and a gram of charras and you'll be well on your way to a nice stoned evening.Service...

Being a non drinker, I prefer the atmosphere of a coffeeshop, not a bar

More like a bar than a coffeeshop, has a (touristy) bar vibe to it too. Large, spacious coffeeshop.Marijuana menu: Menu is pretty limited (and more expensive) than other shops. Some quality weed on menu though.Service & staff: Service is generally very good with a friendly, knowledgeable staff.Summary :... Full details

We stumbled on this place (literally) on the Sat afternoon and didn't leave until Sun afternoon. In short, a chilled out atmosphere with a great sound system.Marijuana menu: A good selection of weed with beginners notes for the uninitiated. The selection of bongs and pipes were first class.Service &... Full details

One of my favorites

Just like a mini bar/pub in London, very relaxed not many tourists and the quiz machine is a must after a couple of splifs!Marijuana menu: small if good selection, but talk to the bar staff all of whom know about the smokes on offer and will be able to pick one to suit your preference.Service & staff:...

one of the best "tourist orrientated " coffeshops

loads of space, looks like a regular bar with a pool table and seating aplenty. it's great if you bag a seat next to the window to watch the world go by. Marijuana menu: wide range of gear at a good price. The orange bud was my first score in the dam, so it will always be memorable. Service & staff: very... Full details

Rookies; I didn't even know it was a coffeeshop at first

Another typical-styled cafe/coffeeshop with a large bar and lotsa space. Many tables make it easy to really have a group of headz! Nice place if you want to get really tweaked.Marijuana menu: Solid menu at a solid price. I really need to try a few more of their samples before I make a final... Full details
