 Mellow Yellow is known as one of the very first coffeeshops in Amsterdam.

Located in the city center, on your way to the Heineken Experience. This place is a legend. 

Check out their sister alcohol bar- the Mellow Lounge. They offer a full food menu, a huge smoke room and DJs spinning late night.

sad times, Mellow yellow closing???

i have been to this coffeeshop many times over the years, i went at the end of december 2016, so, recently, as usual the S5 got me nicely chilled, such a shame to hear the mayor is closing them down. if this is true, rip mellow yellow, you will be missed. Full details

OMG!! Skywalker OG

Me and my mates arrive quite late, about 23:00 and they where still open which was handy as we had walked from a restaurant. Checked out the menu, got some super silver haze, Skywalker OG Kush  was mind blowing. Had a great time there for an hour or so and went back to our hotels. Full details

Expect randomness

I've been here like three times as I normaly take my guests here after going to Heineken Experience (which is pretty near). It's well known for being one of the first coffeeshops opened in Amsterdam, but it's not the coolest one. The decoration is pretty much nothing, blank walls with some painted parts, old...

This was the most local place to me when I was staying on a houseboat in the area recently

Looked like they were in the middle of refurbishing the place, or at least I hope they were. Nothing special at all.Marijuana menu: Nothing to write home about. You can smoke it and it will get you high. Seen a lot better in this fair city.Service & staff: Neutral. Neither outstanding nor poor. I've... Full details

Well worth a visit just to check out a part of Amsterdams history

They call it Mellow Yellow. One of Amsterdam's first coffeeshops. Quite a large coffeeshop across two levels. Trippy artwork on the walls and a few tv screens gives you something to stare at.Marijuana menu: A good range of hash. A small range of weed but some good strains like Amnesia Haze and C5 Haze...

Their super polm is a wonderfully rounded high.

Decor was nice but it is a big shop. When I went there were very few people inside so it felt kind of lonely. Marijuana menu: I promptly bought a gram of Super Polm and mixed it with the Jack Herer I brought from earlier. Even though the polm is supposed to be a sativa it still managed to level out the...

This place was 2 short blocks from my hotel out next to the Heineken Brewery

Yellow is my favorite color. The whole shop and its furnishings and fixtures are bright yellow. It's pretty neat to see, and would have been comfortable enough to hang a while. Not a particularly scenic area.Marijuana menu: Very diverse menu specializing in good grades of hash. I just needed a pre-rolled... Full details
