Authentic Amsterdam Cafe Pub

The cafe of van Puffelen is the place where it all started in the eighties: a ‘bruine kroeg’ (brown pub) with a few tables. The bar still breathes this atmosphere of a genuine Amsterdam pub. You can choose from a wide selection of draft beers.

Van Puffelen is the place to be in Amsterdam for an evening with beers and friends, to have lunch on the canal side terrace during a sunny summer day, or ‘borrelen’ (to have drinks) with, of course, typical Dutch bitterballen (dutch meatballs). The bar is also the best location in the center of Amsterdam to have a birthday party or a graduation party.
