It cannot be said enough what an underrated and forgotten shop. Jolly Joker right in Nieuwmarkt square. Was back in September, never a bad smoke, never bad service. 2nd floor window seats were excellent as always. commented to the Mrs that the view was 2nd to none. an employee overheard, and said to write that on the window frame. so i did. JJ will always be in top 5 shops for us. it's the perfect everything, and the best tea selection box in Amsterdam

I've always enjoyed JJ. Very relaxing place to sit. Weed......okay in my experience. It's more about the shop, view and ambiance. My wife also really liked it. They asked her for ID when we were in early 30's....really made her day.

I've also never had a problem, smoking my own and just buying drinks.

I remember chatting with a Canadian guy in there. He'd brought his own weed from home (in Canada). Just struck me as a very odd thing to do. It was nice though.

They do lovely hot chocolate too.

A couple of nice restaurants nearby also.

Leaving myself wide open here, but what tops it was discovering Steely Dan, a band I was unfamiliar with and now love. Ah well, it's an age thing I reckon.

So after reading fairly positive reviews here and hearing good stuff by word of mouth I thought I would check it out.

Wasn't really impressed with bud. Pre bagged, I thought a little over priced (10e for Jack Herrer), and while I didn't think the bud was brilliant, it wasn't bad but I just think given the fact Greenplace is under 2min walk away, I would buy my bud there.

HOWEVER, really nice place to sit and smoke (drinks are 2.50e for a coke, mite be a glass bottle though). We sat upstairs and while it was a little cramped, I am really picking at hairs. Nice view (shame about all the scaffolding on Nieuwmarkt), nice enough atmosphere, big TV that showed a Dutch news channel (some cracking goals on the football highlights, was looped though so saw them all a few times!).

So yea, nice place to smoke, but average smoke. Not sure if you can just smoke your own (we bought a bag and smoked that and our own stash from elsewhere), but if there are a few of you I guess you could split a bag like we did (4 of us).

Tried the Space Muffin for 7.50, did pretty much nothing. Wish I had stayed in here for a spliff and a coffee though, nice clean quiet shop, amazing location. Not sure how they feel about smoking your own, but this would be the perfect place to grab some good stuff at Green Place, then enjoy your smoke in a more relaxed setting.

Royal cheese 1 gram 12e or 2 grams for 23e,....super pungent aroma and flavor good high....lovely clean burn. And a great view of nieuwmarket. Loved it last week.

Didnt try anything but the royal and some tea...great selection of teas, lemon green thnk you kindly

Was there last week, great location. The first upstairs table facing the window is very chill for people watching.
Bought 1gr bio silver haze 6,5-10 bad explample of silver haze.
Friend bought 1 gr Jack Herer average stuff, bit of a creeper 7-10.
Only prebagged some strain they only sell 2 gr bags.
Nice place, shame about the weed.
