I’ve smoked 2 rolled joints and I feel nothing, don’t take the rolled ones.

Relaxed atmosphere. The owner does not allow groups with more than 5 people, which grants the place a cozy atmosphere. Great music selection and good choice of weed and hash.

I have been going over 25 years here. Its one of my first herbal coffee shops and is just chill. Good weed, good coffee and small n intimate w good music and art. Gone is the rotating toilet seat that would rotate and be cleaned after flushing.☹ I just love this lil place.

One of my fave coffee shops. It's very relaxed and not too noisy. I particularly like it because it's not one of those super intense social coffee shops but instead was friendly and relaxing. They offered space cakes which were strong as hell and super yummy. Ate a whole one and was stoned till morning

Really good atmosphere, brilliant art work. Amazing vibes all throughout. If you're in damn it's a must go to cafe.

Excellent coffeeshop great place to spend some time, be warned however that just buying drinks and smoking your own is not permitted, a purchase from the herbal menu is required. I haven't been to the city for six years so this may not be unusual now. Other than that, great place.

Since the first time in 1995 The Other Side is kind of my starting off place when visiting Amsterdam. Laid back with a decent level of weed choices or edibles. It's also a great location in the city and is on the gay street. Cheers!

Ambiance of the place was alright, cozy with tables and big photos of celebrities blazing. Weed was low quality , had to turn down the Purple Haze, looked very stemmy and small sad buds with hints of purple. Settled for a big bud (coming from Canada we know our big bud) it was a mid at best , similar to China bud , good look ok taste no high. No dank factor here, would not come back after trying some other places with high quality buds.

The place looks very nice but the attention is terrible, the guy who attends at night is rude. It does not make the site pleasant. If you want a good experience go to another place do not waste neither time nor money there

I got the chance to have a nice experience there, unlikely other here. The bartender (beard guy) was very helpful and I liked the music. Really chill and not crowded

Really relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Good prices. We used the other side as our go to cafe for the whole of our holiday x

Owners care more about you buying a drink every 2 minutes instead of keeping the place clean and making you feel welcome. Very rude service and very poor quality weed at a poor price compared to what else is on offer in Amsterdam. Suprised if this place still exists in 2 years at this rate. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Weird vibe, bartender was a bit rude, can't stay there if you are only there for the weed, you have to order a drink too. Atmosphere is fine, but the weed got us pretty fuccd up. My recommendation is sativa silver i think it called, 1.2g for about 15 euros.

While in Amsterdam I went to many coffee shops and this by far was the best. The environment was calm and the music was just right. Unlike other coffee shops, the pre-roll I purchased was high quality and actually gave a good buzz. Staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back the next time I visit.

Great spot if you're a white supremacist. After an otherwise pleasant day in Amsterdam my cousin and I walked into this rubbish establishment where we saw 2 available stools by the bar. I asked the guy sitting at the bar if someone was using the stool next to him. He indicated we were welcome to have both the seats by him. Then the male employee working the bar came over (tall, white, muscular yet a bit effeminate). First, he told us grufly that we couldn't "smoke" at the bar. That was fine as we had no intention of smoking and indicated as much. Then he told us that we couldn't "sit" as we were positioned because we would block a menu that was taped to the very edge of the top of the bar. With plenty of space available, my cousin began to move her stool away from the menu. Then he told us we couldn't sit at the bar at all. I asked him where exactly we could sit. He replied that he couldn't make room for us. We are two black women. The only non-white individuals in the place. The other customers observed and said nothing. I told him that he was a pig and we left. A gentle reminder of the nature and history of the country we're visiting. But who knows, it may be the perfect spot for others.

Excellent coffeeshop at the corner of what was called Rue de Vaseline, the main gay street of Amsterdam. Now that is history, but The Otherside's still going strong. Favorite staff members: André Gregor and Nick.

Staff were very aloof, and not exactly a friendly atmosphere, but the prices are average and the décor is interesting enough. There are better places you could go, but there are worse by far.

One of the only cofeeshop with decent music. The guy behind is pretty cool if you're mature enough to smoke you darn teens!

Small and cozy place close to the "Flower Market". You need to buy a drink or something inside if you want to roll your own stuff inside. They will always ask for you ID card before ordering something. Drinks are not expensive, nothing special special with the music, but is not laud so is possible to have a proper conversation, they offer pre-rolled stuff, really good space cakes, etc. No WiFi. If it is too crowded maybe you would need to share your table with other people if it is ok for you. I would recommend it for a small stop to relax after doing some tourism, as the environment is just "ok".

Its a cosy atmosphere. Guy behind the counter was neutral. The pre rolled stuff is more expensive here than in other places so if you can't roll probably look elsewhere

The guy working there was miserable and clearly bored. The music was awful and made us paranoid and there was no atmosphere .. Better off going somewhere else that's Cosy and nice

If I could give negative stars I would. THE WORST SERVER! Sounds like the same guy mentioned in other reviews. On top of the rudeness they were out of everything on the menu I wanted (which wasn't much) The guy behind the counter was ignorant and shouting especially at customers. for the neighborhood we were in it didn't feel very inclusive. The store was dirty and had no ambiance.. Go to Abraxus.. Church or Grey Area. This place is a joke.
