The dark wood and faux stone interior makes for a more upmarket, stylish atmosphere than most Amsterdam coffee shops – this place even comes with chandeliers. Seating is plentiful if a little cramped on busy days, so be prepared to sit shoulder-to-shoulder with the people at the next table. Tables are reserved for those buying their smoking products at the bar and there is no wi-fi, which has the benefit that people tend to stay off their phones here. Music at The Otherside tends towards the jazzy and soulful as opposed to rock or techno.
