Café de Dokter

Top choice brown cafe in Medieval Centre & Red Light District

Candles flicker on the tables, old jazz records play in the background, and chandeliers and a birdcage hang from the ceiling at atmospheric Café de Dokter, which is said to be Amsterdam's smallest pub. Whiskies and smoked beef sausage are the specialities. A surgeon opened the bar in 1798, hence the name. His descendants still run it.
