  • They say that he was born in the 17th century, is the oldest pub in the Jordaan neighbourhood. Chris is frequented mostly by locals, making it especially attractive. A bruin café is more than just a pub, is an integral part of Dutch culture and inside mingle reception, family history and strong tradition. Among those walls, and those walls "bruni" oozing layers of dust and smoke and chatter of the centuries, we tasted a genever, juniper liquor of Netherlands, strong and dry, with a good scent, and a dark beer, letting us advise by the friendly hostess. The clientele was accommodated for half and half inside, everyone had found a space, an aura of Bohemian conviviality. Noteworthy the fact that Chris has a pool table.

  • Classic 400 year old brown bar - one of, if not the oldest, in Amsterdam - situated in the wonderful Jordaan district. Well worth a visit.
  • A wonderfully relaxing place to enjoy a cold beer and appreciate the history of this bar. Can't recommend it enough.
  • Lovely old cafe with welcoming atmosphere and friendly locals.
  • Excellent. One of the oldest bars in Amsterdam (1624). Not touristy (except me). Gets lovely mid-afternoon sun. Quiet side street. Nice people. Exactly what I was after.
  • What a gem! Felt like we walked into a movie set. The bartender was so nice, and loved the group of locals.
