Bluebird has a good reputation for its range of hash and grass, its food and its multi-lingual staff. Located in an unusual, quite modern, building in a street that's very different to those in the nearby Red Light District. That's because it was part of the old Jodenhoek (Jewish district) that was emptied and then dismantled during the horrors of WW2. Further remodelling took place with the, controversial, construction of the metro. Although the space is not huge, it's divided into three distinct zones. On the ground floor is a small coffee bar area. Up the stairs to the right is the food and (non-alcoholic) drinks bar. Seating in this area consists of tall stools. We once watched an extreme sports video in this corner, which is odd because several on-line guides make a point of mentioning that there are no TVs or videos! To the left, around the dealer's counter, is a chill out area where you can try out your purchase in comfort. That's assuming that the sofas aren't already full.
So the place is WAY smaller than I was thinking, probably the smallest one I've been since arrived, but thats not a major issue since the atmosphere is super chill and the staff is really nice, they describe everything on the menu and have some really fun questions to decide how you wanna get baked, they start you with "do you wanna get stoned or high?"
This shop is on every Amsterdam trip I take. Its in the center but in a less dense area. If you have a seat upstairs and work yourself passed the narrow bar you found my favorite spot with a window view of the street. I recommend their chai with honey and a good bud by staff recommendation. Last time it seemed most staff are from australia or new zealand.
Really cool 2nd story coffeeshop with awesome window views. Really cool friendly staff and a nice espresso machine. Also really cheap spliffs and decent bud. A good spot to go solo or with one friend. I've been here twice in the past 2 years and im glad it stayed just the same.
Somehow a cozy place, they offer volcano vaporizers and do have a lovely dealers booth.
Amazing coffee shop , awesome everything apart from French people!! So arrogant

This place had some great bud. Their setup is a little broken up with a small downstairs entry area before some steep little dutch steps up to a bar and a couple smoking areas. They had some amazing Amnesia Haze which was their Cannabis Cup entry. Definitely one of my favorite buds smoked in Amsterdam yet.
