Nice beer. Small bar in a rustic little hotel on the edge of the RLD. Did not try the rooms but certainly a warm welcome from the barman (bald French speaking guy) and they have a wealth of local beer options.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
