Welcome to Café de Waard!
Holland. Amsterdam. Tullips? Windmills? No! Great country? Great people? Yes!

And furthermore: old culture, new culture, great sightseeing, freedom, canals, the red light district, and… Café de Waard.

Situated at the world famous Leidseplein in the very centre of Amsterdam, Café de Waard has become one of the most popular bars in the downtown area.

Founded in 1997, and popular with both tourists and locals. Why? Well, it's kind of hard to explain. Maybe it's because de Waard is the personification of the infamous and hard to translate Dutch word 'gezellig'. If you wonder what on Earth 'gezellig' means, just come to Café de Waard and find out for yourself!

'Waard' is an old Dutch word meaning 'innkeeper', as well as the owner's last name. Coincidence? Whatever happens, it will all be very 'gezellig' and Arjan de Waard and his crew won't let you leave the building before you've had a great time!

All kinds of music ar played, and the bar is always crowded with both young and those a little older but still young at heart.

What makes Café de Waard also special is that we don't have a door policy. We simply don't need it. Our door policy is 'gezelligheid'. You will simply feel very comfortable , cosy, relaxed and have a party till you drop! Inside or…

Outside. De Waard owns a huge terrace. Situated right in front of the bar, 120 chairs will invite you to enjoy the real atmosphere of the Leidseplein with all it's artists and laid back way of life. There's only one rule: ENJOY!

Well… when it comes to Café de Waard , there is one more rule: NO drugs allowed. Feel free to smoke at a coffeeshop. There are several coffeeshops at falling-distance from de Waard. It's simply just not legal to smoke outside of a real coffeeshop - yes, even in Amsterdam- and we don't want any trouble with the law, do we?

You can be part of all this fun and excitement from Sundays through Thursdays from 09.00 AM to 02.00 AM and on Fridays and Saturdays from 09.00 AM to 04.00 AM.

See you soon at Café de Waard!
