The Bulldog coffeeshop at Oudezijds Voorburgwal 90, Amsterdam.
This is claimed to be the first ever coffee shop in Amsterdam and was founded on 17th December 1975 by Henk de Vries. It is situated in the very heart of the red light district on the corner of Dollebegijnensteeg and the Oudezijds Voorburgwal canal. Previously it had been an adult shop.
The Bulldog name is famous the world over and you are likely to see as many Bulldog branded souvenirs in the red light district as miniature windmills.
As well as the obvious you can also purchase beverages. Mostly used by tourists.
Nearby hotels include Hotel Vijaya
and Hotel Winston
