me and my wife spent 10 days in amsterdam last summer and we had the best time of our lives there. we visited as many coffee shops as we came across. barneys has 3 locations where you can smoke and one where you buy bud. all 3 places had the friendliest staff members who wanted to do nothing but help you out. they where all very nice and didnt treat you like you where a tourist. the bud was amazing and the has was really good too just a little pricey. but if you ever visit amsterdam eat at barneys smoke at barneys and drink at barneys you wont regret it
won the cannabis cup last year for it's liberty haze...unfortunately i didn't get to attend but i came a month later and got to sample both liberty haze and tangerine dream which were incredible to say the least.
quite pricey, 14-20/g...and incredibly touristy, but worth it

Definitely a tourist spot but still a must see on a coffee shop tour. Barneys has a lot of my favorite overseas strains like Dr.Grinspoon, Violater Kush, Tangerine Dream G-13 and many more. Since they have received many awards from the HTCC so the shop can get really busy but I always find a place to sit. The accommodations and the smoking utensils are some of the nicest in the city. This goes without saying but I have usually received better buds from the coffee shops when I visit at times that do not coincide with the Cannabis Cup.
dont get me wrong. the weed here is always nice. their g13 haze has kept me comming back atleast once per visit. but their prices are the steepest in town. ww for like 10 euro a gram. everywhere else this bud is for sure no more than 8 euro a gram. if you dont mind paying crazy prices though by all means go.

This place is pretty cool. You can tell they try to keep up the most most modern trends like have a tv at each table and vaporizer heated and ready to go as well. I visited during Cannabis Cup so when we finally got a seat we tried out their entry bud Tangerine Dream. This shop went all out to brand this bud with a logo, T-shirts and all. It smelled about as good as anything I've smelled in Amsterdam and looked a lot like some of the other good buds I was getting. When we smoked it I must say I was slightly disappointed, it wasn't bad at all but certainly didn't taste anything like it smelled... not a bad taste or high though. I would recommend checking this place out, definitely a nice coffeeshop.

I've been to Barney's a couple times since I've been here and after sampling some of the other coffeeshops I'd say their quality is relatively on par with the majority of others. What separates Barney's from the other guys is their location, atmosphere, and accommodations. At every table there is a volcano vaporizer, an lcd monitor playing something I can't really describe(similar to music videos), and an ashtray. There is also table service here which is also uncommon, but very much so appreciated.
edit: Definitely check out their Dr. Grinspoon as that is a one of a kind bud.
