It seems to be the latest shop that will be out of bounds for a spell during renovation. It must cost a significant amount to a shop to do this sort of thing – not so much the cost of labour and materials as no sales revenue for weeks on end – so I'm wondering if there's more to things than just getting tired of the curtains.

Based on the style of the other Boerejongens coffeeshops, it probably looks something like this

The Dampkring is definately one of the best coffeeshops I have been to in Amsterdam.
Great vibe and the place looks very hip. The weed and hash are of great quality and the staff is very friendly..
Back soon! :D

The picture in the chair is pre? Damn, I don't remember Tweede Kamer being that light! Does being stoned affect your memory and your eye-sight? :?

I have to say I was never a fan of Dampkring 2 as a place to smoke or to admire the decor, though I did once without any of the problems others have reported. I'm curious to know what particular regulations all these renovations are designed to comply with, if any. I can't help thinking back to the days when Rusland seemed to change radically every time I visited the Dam (in the '80s), but nobody else seems to remember that phase.

Someone mentioned the word renovation - did not see any signs of that last Friday.
Don't like the oncomfty to low plastic "chairs" on the top floor - hint.

Bought some King Hassan haven't smoked it yet.
