One of the best , oldest and most matured coffeeshops in Amsterdam !
De Tweede Kamer is a coffeeshop with roots in the history of authentic Dutch cannabis culture. This coffeeshop has been established since 1985, at the time Dutch cannabis regulations were quite a novelty. The name 'Tweede Kamer' is a playful reference to the Dutch Parliament, and literally means 'Second Room' which is appropriate for the cosy living room feel of the place. Back in the early days , De Tweede Kamer was the first coffeeshop to start weighing and packaging products in front of the customers. This allowed customers to see, feel, and smell the quality of the wares, in the spirit of openness and transparency that still serves as the shop's philosophy. The staff has incorporated the rule that 'we don't sell anything we wouldn't smoke ourselves', and this ongoing quest for quality is evident in the extensive cannabis menu. No surprise, as the original owner is still present, while some of the veteran employees have been wading knee-deep in the cannabis sector for well over twenty years! For the experience of the true old-fashion Dutch coffeeshop atmosphere, De Tweede Kamer is the place to be. This place is a testament to the genuine smoker's culture, feeling right at home as soon as taking a seat. De Tweede Kamer has an intimate and cosy feel, supported by a dedicated staff. Local smokers who know where to go visit regularly, so for adding some cultural depth to a quality smoking experience, De Tweede Kamer is definitely the place to visit!
