Amsterdam Nightlife

Amsterdam doesn’t only make you addicted to its landmarks and people, but it also give you the feeling that you can no longer continue your life without drinking the aromatic coffees that its coffee bars have to offer. Once tasted, you get the addiction for life! In order to supply yourself with these soft drugs, you can visit Trinity coffee shop. This bar is cheap and clean, the music played here is nice and for those who like to enjoy their stay in a fresh atmosphere, there is a separate non-smoking room. The services are excellent, the staff is really helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. [...]
