I liked the apple pie in the 'orginal' Bulldog in the RLD. That's pretty much the only reason I ever went there, lol. Before I could roll, I also used to buy visitors those little 4 packs of pre-rolled white widow. Not particularly good weed, but my guests always enjoyed them and the little 'souvenier' box they come in. I thought it was a cute way to welcome people to the city, inside a little card. (I will admit that now that I'm bigger and brighter, I never go there unless I'm meeting someone there or getting pie, but meh. I don't HATE the place like lots of people do.)

When we walked past BD a few times last august it seemed like quite the PARTY.
It was like FT. Lauderdale on spring break or something.
We never saw any other bar or coffeeshop with that debauchery going on.
I think its cool there is a place like this for those who want to party hard.

Think your probably talking about the Bulldog Energy Coffeeshop? It plays banging hardcore most of the time.. Quite different to the original a bit further up the same road..

Despite the fact that I am no stranger to the finer strains back home, as an American it was still quite an odd experience for me to ask for the menu for the first time, let alone smoke in public and not be treated like a criminal. Luckily for me the budtender, a beautiful lady of Spanish origins, was most helpful in choosing a strain (I had just gotten off the plane and did not want to get too fried just yet). For between 8-9 Euros The Northern Lights was a bargain, and as a person who is familiar with this strain I can assure you that the subdued yet unique scent proved it to truly be northern lights. The trichomes were all intact and covered the bud completely. The budtender was so kind and reassuring, and eventually the nervousness I felt from smoking in a public place (especially with a Politie right outside the shop writing a parking ticket!) had eventually subsided. A great place for an early morning smoke, as it can be quite crowded in the evening time.
After reading this review I know you are full of shit. The Bulldog chain is probably the worst shops in A'dam.

Perhpas not, I now the 'beautifull Italian woman' he speaks of, and once in a while I get a little weed here. I get the vast majority elsewhere, for a lot of the same reasons repeated above, but (if memory serves me) their Lemon Haze was very good. Good Atlantis truffles

Definitely way overboard with the techno beat.

I can't say enough good things about their adjoining hotel, I wouldn't stay anywhere else

Was looking at street view on google maps and saw that this is on the other side of the road from the hostel i will be staying in.

Nice place or should we just walk the 20 seconds down the road to anyday for our 'local coffeeshop'

Me and a friend were on our way to the bulldog for a pint and a smoke in the afternoon after a long hard paddle around the canals.

As we approached I witnessed what only can be described as a british sausage fest, all drunk, shouting and chanting football songs. I pulled a 180 and headed back to the coffeeshops.

LOL. I guess you'd have stayed at home and gone to a cheeseclub if that's what you wanted.

The original is a nice place to take a smoke and drink but bring your own smoke.

Ended up at the Bulldog during my August trip, not the one beside the hotel bar but the one further up the road.
Only ended up here as we really wanted to sit outside in the sun. Got a table outside by the canal and went inside to get a drink. Didn't like the vibe from this place at all. There was a bouncer on duty even though it was only about 4pm on a lazy Friday afternoon.
Won't be back.

I have never been to the Bulldog Palace but, if we are talking about the Bulldog Rockshop on Singel next to Rokerij and The Doors.

I liked it, tried the Lemon Haze while I was there on an 8 hour layover. Not too bad.

The bulldog was a good time, definitely one of the biggest/ most commercial feeling coffee shop that I went to in Amsterdam. Prices were average, but the selection was good. I believe there was a bar in it as well which I didn't see anywhere else. Definitely worth a visit to say you've been to the most famous coffee shop in amsterdam.
